Sorry, but I honestly can't make any sense of a lot of what you have written. So I'll take up just the one point.

If you wish, you can dismiss technical papers that don't agree with your premise that full wheel covers are always best for drag. You can even drag in odd statements about Paris dressmakers. I, however, like going on the evidence of peer-reviewed technical papers.

The current technical literature unambiguously shows that full wheel covers are not always best for low drag in road cars.

I don't like seeing people being given incorrect advice. It wastes their time, energy and enthusiasm.
Modifying the Aerodynamics of Your Road Car

A really good book that should be added to the library of everyone working in automotive aerodynamics, as well as those making car aero modifications at home. - Rob Palin, former Tesla aerodynamicist
