    I didn't vote as I think they are both nice. I'm going to try and fit the S 21" wheels on my 3, assuming the offsets aren't way off. Outer diameter might be too big though and throw off speedometer too much.

    I don't understand the question. The wheel sizes for the 3 are 18" and 19".

    Correct. The author should update his poll

    The silver alpha car had 20" originally. The 19" wheels we see now are of the same design. So either they rethought the 20" and went with 19" instead or 20" of the same design will be available later on the performance version.

    It appears to me the OP/vendor is simply asking which wheel do you think looks better. My guess is that will be the wheel they try to produce/manufacture/stock for the Model 3 as an aftermarket alternative. So the size doesnt matter for the sake of this poll.

    IMO there's no comparison

    I would much rather have the option to put the turbines on the model 3. Giving us the option to do it in 19s would be great.

    If the idea is to ask which 20-inch wheel we'd like to see you make for Model 3 since Tesla is only offering a 19-inch version, I'd vote for the Model 3 version that the silver alpha had!

    The Model 3's largest wheel, the optional 19", is by far most attractive wheel Tesla has made to date. Showing the Alpha's 20" is not a good comparison as it will not be available as an option.

    But the 19" and alpha 20" are the exact same wheel design. Besides we don't know if it won't be available as option later. It could be on performance version.
