    I have custom wheels 3 piece on my Vette and Camaro as well as few other wheels on my other rides. So the Tesla felt left out so, we went with the below setup. The monoblocks should hold the horsepower well.

    So we added
    1 piece forged wheels
    100% American made
    21x9 = 26lbs
    21x10 =28lbs
    Finish is Kandy black translucent powder coat.

    I think the outcome was nice.the last picture was prior to the change.

    Looks good! Question... assume you're on air and have lowering links installed?

    Wow! That's very low for stock SAS. I'm happy then. No need for lowering links when my CPO arrives, unless of course, Gen 1 Air Suspension is different than SAS.

    Good to know. @Indpowr 's first pic makes it look like the wheel is quite "tucked", hence my question. May just be the angle. Either way, I'm happy that SAS will allow it to go fairly low. I just don't like huge wheel gap.

    Low setting on SAS looks pretty good but the normal height is just a tad lower than coil suspension.
