    Yes the Model X 20" wheels will fit ...The offset and width will push the wheel out 0.5 inches so is flush with the fender :cool:

    Since both options are $2K, I would stick with OEM wheels in case you have any issues :cool:

    What tire size can you use on the Model X wheels?

    Interesting to see how they would look...of course you should probably get different tires to match the OEM diameter...

    Would it make any difference if you're using a wheel that is not made for your car even if it's OEM for Model X? Because the offset and width are not within the stock specs of the Model S, it might actually give you more issues just in case you need warranty work such as drive unit, etc. This is just my guess...

    I am also guessing that FatSix911 meant to stick with OEM wheels *for the Model S*
