What Prevents Aero Covers From Fitting Over Caps?

I was just curious, they have center caps and lug nut caps to put on the wheels that hide beneath the aero covers. But as I understand it, the aero covers won't fit if you have the caps in place. Is it the center cap that prevents them from fitting? Or the lug nut caps? Both?

I also wonder if any third parties will come out with alternate aero covers.

The Aero covers use the same latch method as the center caps to snap on and secure to the center axle. Measure them and you'll see why they don't fit. Have a cell phone rubber pry tool handy if you want to switch them back and forth on the fly.

Happy motoring :)

Got it, so you can leave the lug nut covers on, then? Just have to remove the center cap?

Think of the Aero Cover as a very large center cap. The center of the Aero cover snaps into the same spot as the center cap.
