Also kept the 18" wheels that comes with the "S" model. Should provide better range and comfort.

I'm pretty happy with it. Also, when you take it off, the wheels are brand new underneath.


The Tahoe had 120,000 when I removed it to put new tires on. Wheels looked perfect.

However the car I test drive had the 22” carbon fibre insert wheels and it not only looked stunning, but the air suspension did an amazing job (I drove it on a pretty rough road surface at one point). So I changed my order to the 22s. I think without the air suspension it might have been a different story but it really was comfortable with it. They offer wheel insurance so I’ll probably take that to try and reduce parking anxiety!

Yep. Looks great.


And it looks like Waymo did similar with theirs.


I also went with standard 18s. Only other wheels I like are the black 20s, but not spending $2k for wheels/looks.

I loved the look of the 22in wheels above all others, but can someone please elaborate on why this might be a poor choice? Ride quality, speed/power, efficiency? McRat's post concerns me!
