    Swapped my wheels out today for the winter set, and I switch the wheel center caps over as part of that. The winter set is not Tesla, but the center caps fit perfectly. Anyone else purposely point the T logo to the valve stem? I think it will make it infinite minisculely easier to locate the value stem when checking tire pressures...

    Yes, I did this when I set up an extra set of wheels and center caps for snow tires. I had noticed that Tesla had set up my original wheels that way and found it easier to locate the valves in my rather dark garage. So I did the same for my new wheels. Now I just automatically look at the "T" when trying to locate the valves.

    Porsche does this as well. The bottom of the crest points towards the valve stem.
