    Avant Garde Wheels M359 - http://www.avantgardewheels.com/m359.php

    20x9 on all corners
    245/40-20 tires
    These tires are closest in size to what comes on the front Tesla 21" wheels and are used a lot on people's 20's. However, they look a little narrow on these rims. Someone posted that they have rubbing with 255/40-20's on 9" rims, so probably nothing to do.

    You will need hub centric rings. I bought 64.1mm - 72.6mm. They are a tiny bit loose on the hub but fit the wheels fine.

    The stock lug nuts are too large to fit these wheels.
    The first set of lug nuts I bought were 1.9" tall which looked funny:

    So, found another set that are 1.4" tall. These are not as common but worth it. They take a 19mm socket.

    What offset are you running on the wheels?

    Wheels look good BTW

    Looks GREAT! Love the look and size. I think 20s are far more befitting of the Tesla for daily driving, though the 21s are cool-- but they don't last well here in Ohio. I've seen multiple sets come back to the service center bend, tire damage, wheel bends/cracks, etc. Cleveland, Ohio has pot holes the size of small children. I sold my 21s for a set of 20s, so I'm very excited about your setup. Although I purchased a different brand/style of wheel, mine have the exact same tire size, offset, hub bore, etc. Basically the same as you just a TSW wheel in black.

    That is the proper tire size to keep the speedometer happy. You could probably stuff a 255 in the rear without any issues, but yeah I don't think you'd want to change the front at all. I think it looks perfect--- congrats!!
