Can someone photoshop what the aero wheel caps would look like with chrome/aluminum finish?

I'm curious with how the aero caps would look like (on midnight silver metallic) with an aluminum/silver/chrome looking finish (to somewhat match the chrome on the car). I've attached a couple pictures.

There are two parts of the aerowheel - the 'glossy' spokes that are curved inwards to the wheel and the larger area which is almost like grey triangles. Can someone who is good at photoshop modify it so that the larger area is silver and then another one where just the spokes are silver?

PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

I think the chrome accents looks pretty sleek...

Okay, that was a challenge. But I like a challenge. It's not the best I've ever done, but converting matte to chrome (or chrome to matte) isn't easy to do quick and dirty. And there are surprisingly few good photos of the Model 3 with capped aero wheels. For reference... the original.

Personally, the only one of these options I would consider is the chromed spokes, and I'm not wild about it — and I'm not even one of those "kill all chrome" guys.

Wow you're awesome - thanks man! This gives a nice visual. I'd have to agree with you that I'm not a fan of any of them, but maybe it's because chrome is too aggressive on wheels. Would it be possible to do it as more of a softer aluminum sort of like what's depicted in my OP on the white M3?
