And why their range 'sucks' compared to the more streamlined offerings of the competition.
The wheel covers definitely get attention and comments at the gas pumps or places I park with people asking about them lol

Still the big issue to tackle is the 80mph fuel efficiency. Iím extremely satisfied with city and back country farm road driving and mpg. Wide open interstate at 80 though, very depressing. Better than most others on the road, but I Desire more
