With the backlog of center cap orders, I'm surprised someone hasn't started 3D printing and selling simple center caps...

Model 3 Wheel Lock Set - I noticed this was available in the official Tesla store. Can anyone who has already taken delivery advise if the lug nuts that come with the model 3 are a lock set? I thought it was standard these days for that to be the case - especially for luxury vehicles. Thanks!

Nope. Just regular lug nuts. They are actually unfinished as well. Just took mine off and replaced with gorilla lug nuts.

Well that is disappointing! Ok then, that leads me to a new question, if I purchase some ahead of delivery, will the Tesla service station put them on my Model 3 for me when I take delivery?

Delivery center certainly won’t. There goal is provide delivery...no additional services. Service center will but likely at a cost unless you find a kind service advisor. You honestly don’t need the locks. The 19” lugs are hidden behind a cap and 18” are hidden behind the aero hubs. Plus the rims are not anything in demand or worth stealing

Which gorilla lugs did you put on?

Thought I would post a picture of the Gorilla lug nuts for those considering. I think they look good. IMG_2881.jpg

True, but after I saw the scratches on the outside edge of the wheel probably caused by friction from the aero caps, they are not going back on. I would rather sacrifice the extra 5-10 miles range.

They must have been measuring with a ruler or something. I measured my tesla caps at just under 58mm at the widest point (the face). The "fingers" on the back have a 50mm outside diameter and 53mm OD for the "notch" on the fingers. The center of this notch to the back of the face is 9mm.

Also I don't know if it's been mentioned but 4 centercaps cost $60 where the kit with nut covers is only $50.

I have a set from Tesla available for sale - just msg me and make an offer. I had ordered it before I changed my mind and ordered 19"s instead.

Has anyone taken delivery of the 18” TST turbine wheels sold by TSportline? They were supposed to start delivery this week.
I ordered the silver turbine wheels and cannot decide what to do with the lug nuts. I don’t want to pay $50 for black plastic covers that do not match. Apparently the chrome lug nut covers are no longer available.
I purchased the chrome Gorilla lug nuts from Evannex,but I don’t know if they will work on the turbine wheels.
