    Looks great! I have Vredesteins on my Challenger SRT8 and they're the best tires I've ever purchased, and I've gone through Pirellis, Nittos, etc.

    These spokes are .. unusual to me. Sort of turbine but with alternating polarity.

    Yes that's what attracted me to them. The stock 21's sorta look like a fan. I wanted to get rid of the fan look and open up the transparency to show off the Tesla calipers.

    Who makes the wheels? And how did you get the Tesla logo on the wheel? And exactly what are the specs for the wheels (things such as offset would help). Thanks

    These are one of the nicest after market rims I have seen so far. I too am curious about the logo, custom creation?

    I believe these are the AE10's offered by Al Ed's West Hollywood. They offered several rims that would work with the MS in 21" and 22" in which you could get the logo. They even offered 19" that look very similar to the current 21" that can be ordered.

    Yes correct - they are the AE10 22x9 et 35 with the correct center bore (63.1mm). Ellie had several sets custom drilled for the Tesla and the custom center caps. So the link provided on the page 1 is where I ordered my set.

    I thought the center bore was 64mm? Model S - FAQ - Tesla Motors Club - Enthusiasts & Owners Forum

    That's a good question on center bore - I think Ellie got it correct but as you know you don't have to exactly match the center bore just can't get under it. Perhaps the 64mm was a don't get lower than number. Would love to know.

    Thanks for all the compliments - I really like the wheels!
