Actually? I thought these wheels were beautiful. I misread the intent of this thread at first. No, I wouldn't go with pizza pie hubcaps or Volkswagen/Porsche domed wheel covers. But no, I also wouldn't go for extreme low resistance with incredibly narrow 165 tires inflated to 60 PSI and worn down to bald spots with no tread either.
Does anyone have real world numbers on the effect on range?
I do. I had custom made solid disks on my Model for about 5000 miles. They make a significant difference. The effect is entire aerodynamic, so the faster you go, the more the positive effectiveness. On a road trip from Los Angeles to Minneapolis it gave me about 8-9% better range/lower energy consumption and thus saved me time of charging as well. In city driving (at lower speeds) the effect is much less.
I actually got a lot of positive feedback from people about the look. I really wish Tesla would offer simple attachable disks or true disk rims for those you want it. It's funny for people are so concerns about range loss and are willing to pay a lot of money for a slightly larger battery, but this solution would give you more range for a very small cost.

I love the looks of your car.
IIRC you mentioned the biggest problem was noise from disks vibrating?
Too bad they don't make moonie hubcaps in 19 inch. All I could find is 17 inch and smaller.
