    2020 L ECO has alloy wheels with plastic covers. Do the plastic covers offer any aerodynamic advantage? Thank you.

    Some people assume that they do because why else would Toyota add them. I tend to think otherwise and say that the added weight is counter-productive to MPGs. Plus the wheels look better without them.

    If they improve mpg, then it's only by an infinitely negligible amount. I agree that the wheels look better without the covers.
