Take them off. I will likely pop them off for daily driving and only put them back on for road trips to get the 5-10% range gains back. The wheels look pretty good without the Aero hubcaps.Am I blown away by the look? No. I think I picked the best color, but the wheels look cheap or at the very least goofy. A bit like those high-end disc-like bike wheels, if you know what I mean. I think they look least bad with this particular color, so yay.
Thank you for the clarification. I might splurge as well. So I am not the only one who thinks the aerodynamic Aero wheels look cheap/goofy.Note that the previous picture is with the “Aero Wheel Cap Kit”. This is a $50 package from Tesla and is currently back ordered for 8 weeks. I submitted an order for this and a few NEMA adapters as soon as I configured my Model 3.

As others said, I plan on running like this around town and with the aero covers installed on road trips.
