    I was just looking at some old photos of the matte black M3 from the reveal event. The wheel covers which are different from the production covers got me thinking. It only makes sense that someone will in the very near future start selling custom wheel covers that look more appealing than the production version. Telsa may also offer new ones later in the year if they are start. So perhaps we should rest easy with our selection of 18" wheels.

    Agreed, I’m sure there will be aftermarket aero covers in the next 6 months or so.

    What size wheels are in that photo? 20’s? I wonder what sort of efficiency losses we’d see with that size wheel if it had the same aerodynamic benefits of the stock 18 inch wheels with aero covers? For my 3 I’m planning on keeping the stock aero 18’s for road trips and then daily driving with tsportline 20’s, but I would love to have a set of these! They look great!

    I haven't seen anything but I wonder if I can make them using a 3D printer. I really prefer the one from the reveal car.
