    Got these installed today. Not quite as eye catching as the 21's, but I plan on running these most of the year for the ride comfort, cheaper tires, and improved wheel protection. I could do without the BBS center cap and maybe I'll try and find something else.

    BBS CF in machined finish
    Offset: 38mm Backspacing: 6.22" Bolt Pattern: 5-120
    Rec. Tire Size:245/45-19
    Weight: 27.1lbs.
    Tires: Toyo Proxes 4 Plus

    FYI - I found a place that made me custom Tesla center caps.

    Just go to : Online shop 3D wheel center caps and mention you want the Tesla sticker.

    You have to measure the size you need to cover yours.

    Really nicer on my car.

    I think they look great; I love that style. It is really amazing how this car makes 19s look average sized!

    How much did you save over the Tesla set?

    Thanks for the tip patp

    - - - Updated - - -

    These ended up, after getting the Tesla TPMS, slightly more expensive than Tesla's 19" wheels with tires.

    The inner portion of the spokes is "anthracite" - or light grey. Should hide brake dust better than the stockers.

    I personally like these the best of all the aftermarket rims I've seen pictures of so far!

    Nice! I prefer the look of 19" diameter wheels, so don't second guess your choice!

    OP we have the same on our Honda Odyssey with winter tires, exceptionally sturdy and good looking too, we hit not one pothole with the fronts.
