    Wow, that pic looks really good with the black / gold combo. I think the S (if mine) would need to have a wider / staggered look giving the rear the full look it deserves. It just looks like the rear is inset a little too much.

    I've always thought about putting spacers/adapters on the rear wheels to make the track wider, lining it up with the fender better. I would be concerned about hitting bumps with the air suspension at low, though.

    Chris, the current programming on the Model S air suspension seems higher than before. Anyone chime in if we're wrong.
    The current company vehicle below sits on 21x90 21x95 with Pirelli 245/35 and 265/35 PZero Nero and drives on LA roads all day (which are not great in some areas of the massive county we live in). It is lowered with our hardware kit so the tires sit slightly above the fender (about 1.5 finger gap).
