    I was hoping maybe someone has an extra wheel cap they could spare. I'd like to study it and see if it is something that an aftermarket thing could be created from.

    I have this idea: how cool would it be to have all these options to change the look of the wheel just from the wheel cap? Would be a pretty cheap way to change up the aesthetic in a major way.

    Don't know if 3D printing would be a viable approach and I wonder how difficult of a plastic mold it would be to recreate or if it is even more involved than that and why.

    I'll just buy one in a little while and maybe the wheel too for testing fit but on the off chance someone has one spare aero wheel or aero caps, I thought I'd reach out!

    Please let me know what you think of the idea. There are many Tesla after market companies and there should be one for these as well. The possibilities are endless once the right fitting mold is made.

    Not a bank breaker to buy one off ebay if you can't find a free one.

    Interesting! Which ones? I haven't seen anything about after market caps of any kind that replace the aero one. Pics? Links? Thanks!
