    I thought they did fit the caps since they are custom made for Model 3. Do they not?

    I was wondering why not put 245/40 19 on 19x8.5 rim since the tire is rated for 8-9.5 wide rims. Wouldn't that make the overall weight lighter and also provide a little more sidewall protection against rim rash.

    You do loose a little torque with larger diameter tires so your 0-60 will be worse on the other hand your top speed will slightly increase. I rather have the 0-60. Don't know if it's enough to be measurable.

    I'm holding out for Techna Bronze, who's with me!
    Also I think it will look good on white, not as good as on red but...?

    I'd be on board with Bronze. I think it'd look great on white.

    Perhaps edit post #2 include wheel specs including weight? And edit post #3 to include a mock-up or the M3 with the T-R10 wheels? A moderator should be able to assist.

    I would do bronze or the titanium. Both would look very nice in my opinion.

    Looks like MPP is riding on Advan RGIII's in 19x9+25 (front) and 19x10+35 (rear) with 245 front and 275 rear RE71R tires in their RWD M3 - go to 5:30 in the video

    Great video and awesome to see so much progress already on this platform.

    They do talk about it needing more tire up front during the track portion.

    I’m leaning toward 19x9.5 square as a track/auto-x setup and then having a daily driver setup with factory 8.5.

    They are going to be doing a 275 on the 19x10 square in the near future for the MPP car

    I looked at the 275 width section but the tire selection is not nearly as good as the 265. I think I'll be sticking with the 265.
    This size fits on both the 19x9 and 19 x 9.5, not sure which I'd choose if both were available tomorrow, probably the 9.5.

    It sounds like it'll be a few months yet before these are available, I am curious how the bronze color effects that, looking more I'm leaning more and more to bronze. I think I'd have to do the chrome delete to really set off the bronze though.

    Not sure blue, chrome and bronze would work, I think the blue, chrome and titanium silver would look nice though. Blue, black and bronze is definitely a winner. https://insideevs.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/blue-tesla-model-3-light-weight-performance-wheels-adv1-bronze-range-extending-rims-a.jpg
    Though that is a darker bronze than shown above I like it especially with the blacked out trim and tint.

    You make a good point about the chrome and bronze, something I had not considered before but it does seem to clash, oh well I better play it safe with the Titanium as I have no intention of doing a chrome delete.

    I think the lighter satin bronze of the Titan 7 would be less clashing. Maybe someone with photoshop skills will show us what it looks like. That dark bronze really looks slick next to the blue and black though. Its not just for Subies!

    I also am leaning away from chrome delete, as I think especially around the door handles and power mirrors it will be troublesome.Plus after the full PPF wrap my budget will be tapped and the PPF is more important.

    Do we know if the 18" version of either style would clear the performance upgrade brakes?

    Also, when are these expected to ship?

    Thanks!

    I'd like more details on custom finishes as well, Seems like we are easily at 10 sets so far, next maybe we can see what finish options we have. I only see 2 options on the website, Titanium silver and Machine Black. I assume there would be an up charge for other colors, but curious what that up charge would be.
