Aero Wheel Sighting

You could previously buy the “Aero” wheels from Tesla.  They were reportedly more aerodynamic than the other wheels Tesla offered but were only sold to a handful of customers.  The first time I saw these wheels on an actual customer car was in August of this year.

The aero wheels are quite convex and at least this Model S aero wheel had a ton of curb rash.  The curb rash was not only along the edges as is the most common wear, but also throughout the wheel due to the convex nature of the wheel.
