    We are pleased to announce our newest wheel for the Tesla Model S named AEF10.

    This is a 1-Piece Forged wheel that is custom made to order for you. It is available in 19",20",21" and 22" sizes. If you order them in 19", 21" or the new Tesla staggered 21" fitment these wheels will accept the factory TPS sensors and tires for proper fitment. If you need tires we exclusively offer Pirelli in 20" and 22". If you want 21" wheels and need tires we offer Michelin just like the factory.

    Your existing TPS sensors will need to be transferred to your new wheels and tires and will be done free of charge if you are in Southern CA. or at your local Tesla service center. If you prefer to purchase new TPS sensors we can assist with that however they will need to be programmed at service to recognize your car.

    These wheels are custom forged and finished in your choice of paint color, powder coat, matte, satin, chrome or any combination that you would like. Shown on this car is a silver machined finish with black outline. Build time is 10-14 days Please either contact me directly at 310.854.5454 or PM if you have any questions or are interested in ordering a set.

    Nice wheels. Do they come with the Tesla logo center caps? What is the weight of these wheels? I would be interested in 20" wheels (20"x8.5) with Michelin Pilot® Sport A/S Plus tires. The tires only come in 255/40/20. Would these be too wide for the front and cause rubbing?

    Is this one of those things where 'if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it?'

    Not really. We should all be smart our money.

    Forged wheels can cost anywhere from $1000 to $2000 per wheel in 20/21" sizes. Don't forget to add the cost of tires. Every inch you add can cost 100-300 more per wheel. And colors can add another 100-200 per wheel.

    I've thought for a while that 20" wheels might be the right compromise between the damage-prone 21" and poorer handling 19". Wonder how those would play given Tesla new Perf Plus suspension?

    Custom center caps are included. We do offer them in a 20" and the tire size is 245/40/20 all around or in a staggered fitment of 245/40/20 front and 275/35/20 rear. We recommend either Michelin Primacy (BMW 7 series tire) or Pilot Sport A/S Plus. Pirelli also offer these sizes in a run flat.

    PM me with what size you are interested in.

    The Pilot Sport A/S Plus 245/40/20 tires are not available in GreenX (LRR). Only the 255/40/20 are available in GreenX. That's why I was asking if the 255/40/20 would rub in the front.

    Do you happen to know off-hand how much Tesla chargers for additional / replacement center caps? Is your price lower?

    I was considering getting some extras and trying some different looks for the (nearly invisible on silver 21") T logo.

    I'm mulling that one over also. But some of the looks I was considering are painting the area surrounding the T rather than the T itself.

    Do you have a picture of them in just pure silver (no black outline)?
