I bent a stock Aero wheel on the interstate and had it towed home. I have an extra set of 18" wheels from a 2016 Mustang, and they are the same bolt circle and offset. I'm trying to decide whether to buy one more Aero wheel or use the Mustang wheels instead. My commute is short, I'm not concerned with the small loss in efficiency. BTW, the donut spare from the Mustang fits fine, I will take it with me on future road trips.

For tires I'm considering at Conti Extreme Contact DWS-06 Plus, or Michelin Pilot Sport AS-4.

I'd say the only thing you should get in order to use the Mustang wheels in the Tesla is hub centering rings. The Mustang wheels have a bigger hub diameter and this could cause shaking if not using the centering rings. Also, make sure the tires are rated for the Tesla weight, because most likely they are not (especially the spare).
