    Hi everyone,

    I have in stock 2 sets of wheel spacers for the Model 3. These are made for the OEM wheels and meant to bring the wheels out towards the fenders more for a flush look. Currently with the stock wheels, the fenders dramatically hang over the wheels. This will fix that awkward look.

    $270 per set + shipping. Let me know where you are located and I'll give you a total price!

    Do you have any pictures of how the wheel looks after installing?

    Great questions, here's some pictures.

    Before — sunk in, fenders almost looked like they were consuming the wheels:

    After — wheels are in line with the fenders, giving a proper fitted look. This is how it should always come from Tesla:

    How much would it push out for Model 3 with PUP?

    Rear looks good but front looks to have some poke?

    Spacers will push the wheels out 15mm front and rear.

    So I’m guessing that would be 12-13mm for cars with PUP since we have that lip? I’m just trying to decide spacers or wheels but unsure because the PUP cars are slightly different.

    Everyone should keep in mind that this is moving the load offset of the wheel bearings out from their design point. It's likely to significantly shorten wheel bearing life.

    Would it do that for wider wheels as well?

    Hi,

    Thanks for your concern. We have been installing quality spacers on cars for nearly 20 years without fail. Porsche as a manufacturer offers spacers as an option on some of their models. Low quality spacers could pose a problem.

    Using high quality hub centric spacers don't pose any issues or increase wear on your wheel bearings. Essentially a hub centric spacer, that offers no flex in the installation, is like buying a wheel with a lower offset.

    And even if it doesn't you're changing the scrub radius significantly.
