    Just saw the lower weight 20 in wheels offered with tires as a package at TireRack but don't see any reviews there or via Google. The prices seem very reasonable compared to all the other alternatives out there. Has anyone installed these wheels? Please share your experience - do they hold up in durability?

    I was looking at the F1 or F2. Wonder if they will stick past the fender at all

    Just installed four 20x9 Flow One F2 wheels on our Model S for winter wheels (with Nokkian Hakka R2 tires). Went with a non-staggered setup so we could rotate them. Pics below...

    Pretty wheels!
    What offset did you get and what do they weigh?

    Here are the specs from Tire Rack:

    https://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?target=runWheelSearch&initialPartNumber=F229004GGMS&wheelMake=FLOW%20ONE%20Race%20Spec&wheelModel=F2&wheelFinish=Gloss%20Gunmetal%20Silver%20Painted&showRear=yes&selectedRear=F221003GGMS&autoMake=Tesla&autoModel=Model+S&autoYear=2017&autoModClar=100D&visLoc=1

    They're 30mm offset, looks like 25.4 lbs. Tire Rack shows 20x10 and 20x9 staggered setup, but we went with 20x9 for all four so we could rotate. Will go back to the staggered 21s for summer...

    Very nice look. Look forward to hearing how well they hold up.

    @sc123 How are those rims holding up? Can you give us a quick review? I'm thinking about the 20" as my summer set.

    So far so good - it's my wife's car, but she says they've been fine.

    I have a P85+ with the staggered 21's. Getting really tired of replacing the rear tires every year. I'm close to needing 4 new tires and priced the Michelin Super Sports at $1,400 with tax & installation.

    So now I checked TireRack and the Flow One F2's in 20x9 with TPMS sensors & Hankook 245/40-20 tires come out at $1,890 including everything.

    So only $500 more which I'll save within a year due to longer lasting tires plus I can rotate the wheels. This is so very tempting.

    We also bought a 5th wheel - always afraid that I won't be able to find one on short notice if we damage one. Of course now that I have it pretty much guarantees that we won't need it ...... :)

    I received two wheels today. The other two were lost by UPS yesterday, then found this morning and now on a truck in Missouri with no scheduled delivery date.

    Anyway, I weighed them. 20x9 with Hankook 245/40-20 tires weigh 52.2 lbs.

    Those look great! Also appears they come in gloss black, for those who care.

    Yeah, I'm very happy with the looks. Also impressed with the weight. I looked online and 21x9 stock rim w/ 265/35-21 tire is 65 lbs. 21x8.5 w/ 245/35-21 is 60 lbs. Total weight savings will be 42 lbs for me.

    No issues with rubbing, I’m assuming?

    None. I was a bit worried as the fronts sit 16 mm further outwards and it sure looks tight, but somehow they clear.

    Still spinning just fine here. My wife has gotten several complements on them as well. Definitely a good, reasonably priced option!

    Do they feel any different? How’s the performance?

    First thing I noticed is that they are significantly quieter than the 21's. Also noticed they're a little more comfortable going over road reflectors.

    Handling seems about the same, although I haven't taken it to the limits on public streets. Steering is a tiny bit less precise. I can feel the extra sidewall when doing quick steering movements, but the difference is small and doesn't bother me.
