Curious how this would look on a black powder coated wheel?

Would I just buy the caps and lug covers for the 18 inch wheel? Since my 19 inch is powder coated black?

Not sure about the lug covers, but yes the silver center caps from model S. Tesla is pretty stingy about selling them if you don't own a S/X or have a VIN that they correspond the part to, but it is available in the aftermarket via ebay.

View attachment 295716 I did not like the black lug nut plate, so I went to go get some silver center caps from the service center and chrome lug nuts (you can also purchase chrome lug nut covers). Anyways, just thought I would share that this is an easy hack if you wanted a different look.
This is exactly what I am doing when my Midnight Silver is delivered. Now all you need are red brake calipers.

Are your 4 center caps for sale? I am interested.

I made the switch to the silver center caps almost a year ago now. I still love the look! I did recently add the MSM Tesla T decal in the middle of the center caps and had my calipers painted in a deep blue. I also did MSM door handle decals to subdue a bit of the chrome.
