These new lower profile aero caps are certainly less cool.
If life were 3d modelling I could just "Select Object, Poly-Extrude".

I am confused. I do not know if these are smaller wheels/tires but the wheel covers look identical (or nearly so) to those on the early prototypes and the unveiling. Have you been upset like this over these covers for almost 4 years? Just take them off. As for range, I expect Tesla to offer wheel/tire options to improve range for those who don't off road much. Or, maybe the standard option will be an all-year tire that optimizes range and there will be an option for offroad wheels and tires.
Tires that have longer range definitely need to be an option.
Of course, they don't have to be woof.

Maybe 3rd party hubcaps would change the whole look?
Or, maybe you take the look of some of the aggressive looking Cooper Discoverer tire sidewalls, but with contract tread that is range friendly. <-- Cmon tire makers. You can do it!

Notice that the tire has “Cybertruck“ molded on sidewall. Cybertruck require those special tires? I am thinking extra $$$ needed.

Anyone want to venture a guess on watts per mile range of this to the larger AT raised 4"

While not as cool looking this is probably what I will drive. Maybe I will keep a full sized wheel set around. Heck what is another $3000 taking up space in the garage.

yes

NOBODY makes a 35” tire /20” wheel with an H load rating and a 115 speed rating

so while you’re at it, make the sidewall design match the truck design
That may be a 28", as someone pointed out earlier in the thread

no man - someone incorrectly said that

anyone who knows what a 28” rim looks like would never think that’s what this tire says

Regardless, a 35” tire on a 28” rim with H load and 115 speed ratings *also* doesn’t really exist

AS tires look fine, will definitely need to see the test numbers to decide if the AT tires are worth the range hit.

Definitely gonna be storing the aero caps in the garage after watching that last out of spec video where it was like a 1.4% difference
On my M3 I have two sets of tires (regular/snow tires) and two sets of aero wheel covers.

I only use the aero wheel covers in the winter as they improve the mileage which is needed in the cold weather and keep the snow and ice out of the wheels.

In the summer I use just the center hub covers which came out a couple of years after I got my M3 in 2018.

Not true. Goodyear Wrangler Territory ATs are T rated (118 mph), also whatever the Hummer EV SUV has

dunno - I think I like that lowered look. Not a huge fan of the big tire/lifted truck look.
Lowest suspension and these wheels will be fine for me.
Having the option to occasionally raise for ground clearance is great, 97.5% of the roads I drive on don't require extra ground clearance because tarmac :cool:
