    Awesome. What does Matrix Black look like vs Satin Black?

    can you post a photo of one of the stickers in each color, or better yet, on the wheels?

    I hope you supply a few spare decals. In case a newbie screws up a couple and nice if you get a nick you could replace a few decals.

    How easily do they peel off?

    Yes we do include spares but they are so easy to install It's highly unlikely you'll need them.

    They are easy to pull off initially, after a few years they will come off if heated with a heat gun and a bit of finagling (There are plenty of wrap removal after "X" years videos on YouTube if you're interested).

    The photos I posted have Matrix Black installed, it has texture but from a distance (3ft or so) it looks matte.

    The Satin Black will be closer to what Tesla is currently putting on the Two-Tone option.

    The Tesla option is high gloss black paint, not stickers. Any chance you’ll cut a kit in gloss black 1080?

    Yep we'll be offering gloss if people want it, however Satin and Matte are actually better at making it look like a bigger wheel (the gloss draws attention to the fact that it's not empty space)

    I sent you a message about it a few minutes after you ordered. I had guessed you just ordered with the pre-selected option which was Matrix at the time. Don't worry I got you fam.

    I never read it and assumed it was just order confirmation. I replied and requested Satin. Thx.

    I’ll try it out, the walls are not nearly as thick so I don’t think it’ll have as drastic an effect but it’s worth a shot.
