    Finally finished my Wheel/Tire and Suspension Combo. After research and watching all of you figure it out I finally finished my Model 3 Wheels, Tires and Springs. I have lowered many of cars over the years with just springs and seem to always regret not spending the money for coil overs because of the crappy ride. Well this time I went a little more mild which is actually pretty extreme compared to the stock ride height and the ride is way better than my cars in the past and looks so much better than stock. The Wheel/Tire set up is ride on with zero rubbing and just sitting on the edge of the outside.

    Specs:
    Model 3 Long Range White
    Wheels: Vertini RF1.1 Black Machined Tint Front: 20 x 9 +35 Rear: 20 x 10.5 +45
    Tires: Michelin Pilot Super Sport 4s Front: 245 35 20 Rear: 285 30 20
    Springs: Unplugged Performance Moderate

    Shout Out to UnpluggedPerformance.com who know their stuff and do what it takes to get it right and GetYourWheels.com who have a lot of experience with different sets of wheels on these Model 3's and will get you set up right and my local tire dealer Tucker Tire who hands down beats anyone in South OC

    Nice staggered look!
    I also like that your tires have a bit of bead protecting the wheels.

    Great look!

    That looks fantastic, but how is the clearance on driveways?

    Jizono, thank you for posting this. I am seriously considering upgrading the springs/tires on my AWD (due sept-nov) but was hoping to hear some real world reviews before I pulled the trigger. Could you possibly elaborate a bit on the improvements you feel with the new combo?? BillO's clearance question is s good one too. Thanks in advance.
