    Has anyone changed the color of their Aero wheels (not the covers) to silver (via paint, powder coat, or dip)? I can't find any pictures of this. I think a bright silver would contrast and look great against my black Model 3. The gunmetal color just doesn't pop enough against the black. Thanks!

    I saw one with silver, and it looked pretty good. I am not cool enough to be a black/dark grey wheel guy, so I upgraded to the 19's. If not, I would have painted the 18's or bought a set of silver wheels.

    Oops. Sorry about that. In my haste to help, I didn’t read the OP’s post carefully enough.

    No worries. I found that thread earlier. Solid silver covers are a bit much, but I think silver Aero wheels would look good. Sounds like a job for photoshop. Anyone have any free time to photoshop silver Aero wheels on a black model 3? :)

    Thanks for linking that. Very helpful.

    Wow. Exactly what I was looking for. Looks great! Thanks. Is that paint? Plasti dip? Powder coat?
