    Does anyone why some lug nut caps are different heights?

    Notice that the first 3 in the front row are shorter than the rest.

    These were picked up from someone who says that he purchased them from a SC...

    Different wheels use different height ones. Aesthetics. Looks like someone put some in the wrong bin??

    The Model X ones are the longest followed by Model S and the shortest ones are Model 3 lug covers. I have all three types.

    Pretty sure the S uses at least 2 heights. Slipstreams use shorter lugs than the classic twin 5 spoke wheel. Not sure about the others.

    Left to right is the X, S, and 3 lug covers.
