Here's a good 'ol DIY, how-to video for removing those less-than-attractive aero wheel covers that come stock on the Tesla Model 3.
Removing those aero wheel covers on the base Tesla Model 3 is easier than you might expect.
Just one month or so ago, we got word that the aero wheel covers could be removed. At the time, some images of what the wheel underneath looks like surfaced too. But it wasn't until just yesterday that we came upon video showing that the removal process is indeed quite easy. Just a few solid tugs will pull off the cover, which is held in place by some metal snap rings.

Since the covers simply pop on and pop off, then taking advantage of their claimed 10% efficiency boost is simple. Put 'em on when you think you may need the added range, pop 'em off when you'd rather not be asked why you went with such an unattractive wheel on an otherwise beautifully designed car.
