    Anyway to get it in the stock turbine grey color?? I'm definitely in for a set regardless. I think 245 is probably the ideal tire width for the 19" without sacrificing too much from stock.

    Here is what the T-R10 will look like. They might even look better than the others but I heard they are a bit heavier.

    Will 245 sized tires @ 19 X 9 with +35 ET have the tire lip slightly over the rim? Right now many owners curb their wheels since the rim actually sticks out more than the tire.

    That will be my size tire now.....245/40-19
    I've done some research and narrowed my choices to these 5 Summer tires
    Michelin PILOT SPORT 4S ($257)
    Michelin Pilot Super Sport ($241)
    Pirelli P Zero (PZ4) ($209)
    Pirelli P Zero Nero GT ($186)
    Continental Extreme Contact Sport )$205)


    Here the comparison link for your perusal with a good budget range

    P.S. I'm leaning to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

    The only problem I see with 245/40 19 tires is that they are 10mm off stock diameter which is 1.4%. See:
    Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets

    The guidance is to stay within 1% from stock diameter not to mess up some of the calculations that the electronics of the car are making in regards to slip control, odometer, and other.

    255/35 19 on the other hand is only 8mm off which is 1.1%. See:
    Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets

    265/35 19 is the closest with 1mm off which is 0.1% -- well within the 1%.
    Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets
    This tire I think only fits comfortably on a 9.5 or 10 wide wheel. Its too bulgy on a 9.

    If you could get Titan to tweak their forging dies to accept genuine Tesla black wheel caps (the kind used on 19" and 20" wheels), I think you would hit 400+ orders in 1 months. This titan wheels looks almost identical to the 18" aero wheel, the main difference being that the aero wheels has tubular tangs vs. this wheel which has square tangs. Does an order of 40 mean 40 sets (160 wheels) or 10 sets (40 wheels)?

    +1 I would love this too. Seems like something they'd be willing to accommodate based on what we've heard so far?

    ($216)
    CONTINENTAL
    EXTREMECONTACT SPORT

    ($205)
    GOODYEAR

    Please address what the ideal tire size should be for these forged wheels

    Frankly at this price point Tesla should have OEMed these on the P3D+
