Wondering if anyone is doing this? There’s a lot being said about the aero wheels, but imo the 19 inch wheels look much better without the black center cap piece. The only thing I’ve seen so far is this guy () who also powder coated his wheels. Not sure how difficult it is to remove...

Just realized that the center cap is black on the 19’s. Anyone know if its possible to order silver center caps for the 19’s?

You get a small tool in the glovebox that is used to pull off that black center piece

Anyone know where this small tool is and what it looks like. I looked in my glovebox and do not see anything in there that resembles a tool, which is a problem if I ever need to get this taken off to remove a wheel/replace a tire.

I was specifically talking about the sport wheels. But after talking with Tesla today, I found that in fact, there is no problem with just pulling them off with your hands. No special tool needed for removal of the center cap.

If I didn’t want to use the Lug nut covers, where would I pick up satin black color lug nuts?
