    Works on all as proven by the youtube vlogger who purchased these in China in the summer and brought back to US, installed on his SR/SR+.

    I bet we will see many of these and the prototype wheels on sale soon as they hit the Model 3 and Y range

    These will work on any model including the performance model.
    As long as the wheel states can be used on performance model it can be used on any lesser model.
    Can can always go down but cannot go up (ie: cannot use a 19 in rim on the p3d+)

    The 19" wheel that is the topic of this thread is the standard wheel on the Model 3 Performance in China. :)

    I'm not a big dark-wheels-on-white-cars fan, but those look great @MorrisonHiker.

    Yeah, we actually have the silver on the left side and the black on the right side currently. I think we may modify the black ones in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for updated pictures. :)

    I don't suppose that you have weights for the wheels (with and/or without the aero caps)?

    Erik said the center cap and lug nut caps do fit but it is really difficult to remove them so no pictures of that.

    I don't remember what they are but I think the weights are mentioned in the video in post 2 above: New Gemini 19" Wheel

    I'm hoping these are available in a summer/all-season setup soon.... I'm looking to make my 18"s my dedicated winter wheels and picking up a set of these, it's more than I wanted to spend but these look like a pretty good option, especially for road tripping with the better efficiency.

    We have a little fleet. Lol. Currently the Gemini covers are removed. Need to repaint one of them after losing it while doing donuts.

    Buy these — perfectly sized for removing the center caps on Tesla wheels. Not the best quality but more than sufficient for this task. I keep one in the frunk. Effortless. Good luck.
