    Turbines, of course. They’re arguably one of the best looking multispoke wheels ever designed.

    The Turbine's look awesome! Honestly the color is about 95% of my opinion though. The same color slipstreams would look pretty similar in my eyes, and have the benefits of 19" vs 21" (price of tires, ride comfort, road noise, etc).

    If I could afford it, I would do turbines in a heartbeat. They look badass. I like the older turbines to the newer ones though. The older ones looked a lot more industrial. The new ones are dainty lol.

    Has anyone tried putting the 22" Model X black Turbine wheels on a Model S?

    There is a thread on this site titled something along the lines of "after market wheels." I'm pretty certain I saw one or two people with the 22" wheels on a Model S. Pictures included.

    I highly doubt you’ll get anyone saying the Slipstreams (from a pure aesthetic POV, not weight/energy consumption, etc.). That wheel is just unbecoming of the MS and is mundane IMO. I would opt for the original split-spokes if staying with 19”.
    Good choice going to the Turbines! Looks great!
