    I was at my tire shop putting new wheels on my X and found out the stock lug nuts are different than my 2014 model S, they are actually covered with fake plastic caps. IMG_20170213_155643_HDR.jpg

    Same as most Audi's, Porsches, Mercs etc sadly.

    I just hate the extra fiddling it takes when changing a wheel.

    Actually, this is a better design than the Model S lug nuts ... the stainless shell deforms over time.
    The two piece design allows for a hardened lug nut with a removable cover for improved aesthetics :cool:

    In concept this is better, but the lug nut caps still cheap on my car.
