Can anyone Please post pics of the 21 inch wheels without the aero cover? The 21s don't look cool, but look a bit better without the cover, but again the hole in the middle when the aero is removed is so hideous and makes the wheels look like spare tires. How Rivian let it be that way is baffling. I love the looks of the 20s, the best looking wheels, but a huge drop in range prevents me from going with the 20 inch. Any advice please? Thank you.

If you search there are numerous posts about this.

I don’t believe anyone has provided numbers of the 21’s with no aero covers.

Can you cut some vinyl for me?!!? Ha. They look great, nice job. Notice any drop off in range without the covers?

Amazon.com, specifically, "KitsPro Wheel Center Caps Gunmetal Gray, Outer 57MM , Inner 50MM". The gunmetal grey color is an excellent match for the Rivian wheels. I added the Twraps vinyl stickers to complete the look.
When I looked the gunmetal color wasn't available for that size unfortunately so I went with matte black. I am thinking that I will use yellow plasti-dip on them anyways and pair that with the white metallic vinyl sticker from @twraps

I'm making some based on @nc10 's mix of another one, I've asked him to make a few changes and will be printing in a flexible resin that I can paint in two stages. (main coat and logo coat) then 2k clear them for longevity. I may be able to print some more when I have time for others but you'll have to paint them yourselves. As for range I took them off immediately and still netted 300+ miles at 70-80 mph.
