    Does anyone know the specific paint color and finish (i.e. Satin, glossy, matte) the stock tesla 21 inch grey rims are? I'm getting the 19 inch slipstream silver rims with my car but will try to powder coat them to match (as close as possible) the Grey Turbine Wheels.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm interested in doing this as well. The new grey slipstreams weren't available when I ordered in July 2017, but my local tire shop said he can powder coat the silver slipstreams for only $550 (as opposed to $3300 CAD for the grey wheels).

    I bought the grey Tesla wheel caps so hopefully someone can suggest a good colour that will match.
