    I'm finally putting together my X, and I'm really interested in the MX5 22" aftermarket wheels.

    One thing, however, is that I can't figure out where to buy them: there seem to be at least two unaffiliated sites selling identical-looking ‘MX5’ wheels, neither referencing the other, and both claiming to be the originator?


    Secondly: Anybody else on these forums happen to have bought a set of these? What did you think about the build-quality, finish, etc? Are you happy with them? (They're pretty expensive, so … I want to know what I'm getting into. Especially if you happen to have chosen the matte-black or gold-finish options.)

    Third: Anybody know if Tesla will ship an X *with winter-tires* (that is, the 19" ‘accessory’ wheels you can buy on the accessories site), instead of with the 20" wheels? I want aftermarket tires for my summer driving, and have no reason to own a *third* set of wheels for my Tesla, so … buying two extra sets (Tesla's winter set, and a set of 22" aftermarket rims), for like ≥$10,000, sounds like a huge waste. /=

    (Oh, wow, is there no edit-post feature?)

    While I'm at it: Does anybody have any *other* aftermarket wheels they particularly like? Links and photos very welcome! Show me what you got.

    There are a couple other threads. They're burried a bit deep in the Interior/Exterior subforum.

    Here's the largest...
    Aftermarket Wheels for the Model X

    No, I don't believe Tesla will ship with any other wheels other than the options available on the configurator. Never hurts to ask though! ;)

    Cheers!

    I will do it the other way around... I ordered the original 22" Tesla X wheels and will buy separate 20" wheels with winter tires... Probably will be cheaper...
    I will go for BBS wheels www.bbs.com. I have them now on my current car and very happy about it.
    Currently they only have MS wheels but I heard they will release soon as well MX wheels...
