[QUOTE=MetroMPG;265338]I wouldn't bet a lot based on Musk's quote that the wheels are the only aero mod in play to increase range by 20 miles (6.7%). But it does imply that's the case.

You're right, the wording isn't all that precise. It's not entirely clear if the aero wheels account for the entire improvement, or are they just one component that got the vehicle into the 320 zone. In any event, that's very impressive.
