    Is there a market for these 17" Rims and Tires. Brand new. I'd like to get sell mine because I am upgrading to after market rims and tires. Anyone interested or want to recommend if they have done the same?

    Stock tires are 19" Why don't you do some legwork and check on this yourself? There are about a bazillion ebay listings and 5-10 listings on this damn site.

    Thanks for you angry response. Just looking to see what others have done. The legwork was starting here. Hope your day improves.

    Lol.

    While I agree his response was "angry," you also came to this site and posted incorrect info (stock tires are 19" or 21", not 17") and didn't take the 10 seconds to do a search which would have answered your question.

    Yes, there is a market for them. I'll give you $10.

    P.S. Or you can look at the Tesla Parts for Sale forum to find the ~ 1000 wheel/tire listings there, and post yours.

    Cheers :)

    One thing I learned pretty quickly when I bought my first S and signed on to the Forums is a pretty thick skin comes in handy. Some people just seem to look for things to complain about. Kind of reflects the political climate these days...

    However, as has been mentioned, there's a sub-forum just for parts:
    Tesla Parts for Sale
    I know that can work as that's where I bought a set of rims and tires a while back.

    Also, since you are in Arizona you might want to post something in the Mountain/Southwest forum to see if anyone in your area is looking for rims and tires

    Good luck!

    Welcome to the forum! Yes, some are grumpy. You handled it quite well, and I applaud that.

    To be honest and fair, it was some time before I realized there was anything outside of the "Tesla Motors Forum" section of this place. I would've done the same thing, likely would have received a similar response, and could only hope that I handled it as well as you did.

    Matte Black 19" TST Wheel alternatives. :) You can use your factory Tesla center cap, factory Tesla lug nut, factory Tesla TPMS sensors and factory 19″ tire.

    @FlatSix911 Glad you're a fan. We have this facetious saying in the aftermarket world #stockisboring :) and the more cliché saying "to each his own."

    Happy Saturday TMC!
