NEW MODEL Y 18 inch at Tsportline?!

While it’s true that it will be bumpy and noisy, it should vary by how much.

The biggest issue of this is, it’s highly subjective from person to person over what is acceptable.

So, in reality, only each person can determine for themselves if the change is beneficial or not, or by how much.
I agree. But, this is 3 grand experiment. I’d rather get some input first.
I ordered my Y with the 20" induction wheels because of the look however when I put on aftermarket 19" winter wheels I noticed a good improvement in ride comfort. This prompted me order a set of 18" wheels for summer wheels which once again improved the already better ride of the 19".

When I ordered the S, I did not even think about upgrading the stock 19" wheels. If you prefer looks over comfort then by all means go with the biggest wheels if this is what floats your boat. Personally I think the 18s look great on the Y.
I looked up the RTX part number you used on your car, and a set of four from Discount Tire here in the US is just over $1k (picked up at the store).
Sounds like you got a great price!

I am located in Canada so the pricing I gave was from here. I checked and they have gone up a bit to around $700 US after conversion then again currency exchange does fluctuate. RTX Spider 082734

They do deliver to the US, maybe try putting in your address and see if its reasonable?

Early 2022 I bought another RTX spider set albeit 19" for my MS winter wheels, those were $199 CAD at the time and did include free delivery.

Not often things are cheaper in Canada vs the US, guess this is one of them.
