    We'd like to introduce a classic mesh 22" wheel design the MX117 22x9.0" 22x10.0" inspired by our Model S TS117 wheel.

    The MX117 weighs about 25% lighter than a factory 22" Turbine. You can use original Tesla center caps, original lug nuts, original tire pressure sensors and original 22" factory tires.

    MORE INFO HERE.

    Really like the look of these wheels! Do you happen to have an images of the Matte Grey on Midnight Silver? I like the idea of different shades of grey, but worry they might clash if they don't go together well.

    Would love to get these in a 20" version if you ever decide to make that.

    Does the weight reduction have a positive effect on range? (or is the range just related to aerodynamics?) Us 75D owners living in cold climates cant afford a range loss and are relegated to 20" wheels... ? Any folks with these tires done any wh/mile comparisons?

    I am also curious about this; how much reduction in range impact is there with the lighter forged 22 inch wheels compared to the factory replacement onyx turbine wheels?

    I have read about folks only losing ~ 5% with lighter wheels vs. the ~ 15% the OEM 22's cause. So, yes. A very large part of the range reduction with big wheels is due to the weight.

    What tire do you recommend for your 22's on a Model X if you need an all-season performance tire?

    We recommend and offer the the Pirelli Scorpion Zero (which is also a factory Model X 22" tire).
