    Hi, all,

    I did a deep dive bargain-hunting on this topic and found this can be done for $15.47 shipped!
    Tesla kit is $54 shipped last I checked.

    I got the gray nut covers
    21MM Wheel Nut Covers Lug Nut Center Covers Hub Screw Cover Protector Rim Gray | eBay
    (I believe black can be had for similar price)

    ...and center caps
    4pcs*56mm Car Wheel Center Cap Rim Hubcaps Emblem Fit for Tesla Model 3 S X | eBay

    ...on eBay.

    Here's the finished product:

    Takes like 30 seconds each wheel to install DIY. I had to pound the center caps in a bit with the side of my fist but no problem. Aero's can be reinstalled over these if you need 'em.

    Better value can often be had on eBay vs Amazon, but the downside is the shipping can take weeks. These items shipped to me in about 3 weeks (CA).

    Posted a (very) amateur video on my youtube channel on this as well :)

    (Would love some likes, subscribers, even trolls/haters to comment:)
    Enjoy!
