    Has anyone done this ? -
    I'm guessing it would require a lower profile tire option. but lowered , it might look pretty nice.

    I've seen the aftermarket 20" model 3 turbines online, but was wondering how the 21" would look filling out the wheel wells, and if the offsets would even work ?

    Yes - I realize they will be heavier and hurt acceleration, and range - this is a purely cosmetic question.

    You are right...

    Model S & X = 5 X120

    Model 3 = 5X114.3

    I guess it could work with spacers / adapters - as the wheels need to be pushed out anyway, to get rid of the "obese person on a bicycle look" of the fender over hang relative to the tires
