Has anyone lowered the Model 3 on the new 19" wheels? Also what spacers do people recommend for the LR? Reading different threads suggests 15mm on the front and 20mm on the rear.
Looking to get an idea of stance on the new shaped sport wheels.

Lowered with Eibach pro-kit on 19s. I don't like using spacers but for people looking to make OE wheels more flush with the body than so be it. Take measurements but the threads here will help. Any springs/coil-over system will be an improvement over the 4x4 look.

Can you post before and after pics?

So I swapped my new style 19” with old style performance 20” with 15mm spacers and 20mm in the rear. I forgot that the 20” come with 245 tyres and 19” come with 235 tyres, so that 10mm extra right there. So ordered a new set of 5mm spacers for the fronts, and going to swap the 15mm to the rear. Most likely sell the pair of 20mm spacers if anyone is interested

Am curious if you've found any new info about this as well. I have the 2021 LR with the Aero wheels uncapped, and am looking to add 15 and 20mm spacers as well. I've seen that they will fit fine with the aeros on up to 2020s, but I know the 2021 wheels are very slightly different than previous years, so want to make sure they fit before I purchase spacers as well.

Sorry for the late answer. No I do not run any camber correction, because all parts (MPP) are not legal here in Germany...
But so far no problems and i am in specs with my alignment.
