    Hello,
    Could any one tell me the length of the hub lip of Model 3 non performance? (Not diameter) I assume it is about 8mm, am I right?

    TIA

    I think your red dimension is on the hub itself, the lip is much smaller and i believe it's about 3mm tall. I'll try to get you a measurement next time i pull a wheel off

    Thank you. I meant 'hub' only (the red marked part on my pic), I think I confused between hub v/s hub lip. (between I am not talking about the small 'stepped lip' on performance model 3s, which I knew from other posts that it is about 3mm)

    This should help. 10.75mm is the main hub bore lip depth, not accounting for any brake rotor overlap non-Performance rotors may have.

    I have an owner near me who say his 2020 model 3 AWD has no lip on the hub. See attached picture. VIN is in the 600’s.

    That's true not just for the 2020 models but for all the other ones. It was the Performance brake rotor hat which was significantly thinner than the rotor hat on other models that created this lip.
