    I was wanting to purchase my Model 3 with the 19" sport wheels as I think they look very nice (would have liked to see them come in gloss black) but having read a lot of posts from people stating all the positives about the 18" wheels versus the 19" wheels, I started searching various website to see what I could find in 18" black wheels and below is what I found.

    here are the wheels that I like...

    here are the speculate measurements of the 18" Model 3 wheels...
    The Tesla Model 3 Wheel and Tire Guide

    Please keep in mind, I know nothing about wheels or their measurements and was hoping someone with more knowledge of wheel fitment and specs would be able to tell me if these wheels would fit the speculated Model 3 specs. it looks like the PCD matches up, thanks all in advance for your help.

    Compared to the speculative measurements, the Konig wheels are 1/2" more narrow and +5mm offset. This means the wheels will be inset 5mm more. This plus the 1/2" more narrow wheel will make the wheel and tires look a bit goofy as they will be inset inside the wheel openings more.

    So they will bolt up, but might not be the best looking combination. If you are set on black wheels, just have the stock 18" painted or powder-coated. The Konig wheel does look pretty similar to the stock wheel anyway.
