    No - this is just a spacer to close the gap... also I am trying to find out if they will make the Model 3 exact spec with the center bore at 64.1 like stock....

    I love the design of the T-S5, but I prefer 19” for visual asthetics. I asked them a while back about a Model 3 specific fitment and they advised they were focusing on track oriented vehicles first. I hope they have a change of heart and bump up to 19s. I would be in for a set.

    Hopefully they are willing to make the Model 3 fitment! Sure is a nice lightweight wheel.

    T66-F = $799 = 16.85 lbs
    TS5 = $470 = 18.00 lbs

    That 1.15 lbs cost me $329 x 4 = $1316 (basically the price of 4 - $210 Michelin PSS 4s + mounting + balancing + TPMS's + insurance)

    Nice wheels, but hub-centric would be much better... shop around for a forged wheel that fits without an adapter. :cool:

    Nice wheels... I would buy a set if they made it the correct size.

    Recommend 19s with a bit more offset. The front and rear view of the M3 is the least attractive angles but a wider stance does help.

    Nice! I'd be down for a set for 19" when my car comes in.
