    Nice!

    What offset? Did the hub match up or are you using hub rings?

    Good looking, what did you have on there before? 19's or 21's?

    Do you get any rub on the fenders with the 22" wheels?
    What kind of rubber?

    Thanks.

    No rubbing, i was super conservative on the rubber sizes...I had a bunch of 22's left over from other BMWs so i played around with those

    currently they are 22 x 9" with 35mm offset, i'm running 245/30/22 front and 265/30/22 rear, there is tons of clearance, so i'm going to up it to 265s in front and 285 in the rear

    Ironically the wheels and tires weigh just nominally more than the stock 19's with RFT

    I was averaging 320 kw/mi with stock 19's over 2k miles and for the last 500 miles i'm running 326kw/mi, just a 1.8% loss in efficiency, not too bad for looking badass....

    Fonzie,

    is this the same Fonzie from DYC? I'm TZL with the matte white dipped GTR in California

    Its 22x9 35mm offeset, I had to use hubrings to reduce bmw 72.6 (or whatever it is) down to 64.1mm for the Tesla
