Been wondering why the drivers side of the Y performance looks so much better (more fluent?) than the right side.
RWD/AWD same thing, to a lesser extent.
Then aha, thats why.
Now for me it is obvious.
Can’t recall hearing anybody mentioning this topic.
Weird.
Once you know, you cannot unsee, guaranteed!

Tesla also does not offer both left-hand and right-hand wheel covers (Aero and Gemini.) The wheel cover pattern and slant of the spokes on the passenger side will appear reversed from the driver's side

That was one of my pet peeves back in the day.

Almost every car with directional wheels didn't have driver's side and passenger side specific wheels and I noticed it. One car that did was the Ford Probe GT but most cars do not. Another car that had it.was the Mercedes/Mclaren SLR but that car was $200k.

At least on the Uberturbines it is not as noticable since it is a dark wheel and the spokes are close together.
