Someone put up a picture recently of a Glasgow based powder coat, somewhere based near Springfield Quay. I planned to look around there but would prefer to go with a recommendation. Have you used them before and if so got any prices / pictures? Thanks.
I used them on my last car, a 5 series BMW. Was really happy with the result and I couldn't see any imperfections.

IIRC they were about £80 per corner for 18" wheels. Took about 5 hours to complete, waiting around in Hamilton for the duration wasn't great though so if you can make it back home by other means that would be a good idea.

They may not be setup to with the correct lifting pucks for a Tesla though so suggest getting a set of those before you visit.

One of the guys had posted pics of his alloys in black finish and they looked much better. I think it hides that wheelcap style finish much better

I think its the guy from Glasgow who recommended a place local. 100%, it makes so much sense now that they are going for black instead of chrome on the car. If you check the US model Y out the alloy options are black as well.

Hey guys,

Im looking to see if there is anywhere in the UK that sells 19 or 20inch wheels for the Model 3.

Ideally I’d like the previous generation 19 or 20 inch official Tesla wheels. Does anywhere sell them?

Also, I’ve got a SR+, I’m assuming 20inch wheels would be okay? (I’m aware it’ll affect range).

Thanks for helping!

Have you tried scrap yards? Someone must have written an M3 off by now and those scrappy chappies have a network between them. Wheels can always be refurbed...well if they're in one piece each anyway...
