We have a Midnight Silver Model Y (AWD) and need to order a set of rims and snow tires.

I am planning on ordering the following tires:
Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 Studded Winter Tire - 245/50R18 104T
Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 - Winter tires / Nokian Tires

I am planning on ordering the Martian wheels:
Tesla Model Y 18

Does anybody already have them where they could post a picture of the Gunmetal or the Satin Black with a Midnight Silver Tesla? My wife and I can't decide what color would look better.

I am looking forward to advice and or pictures.

Thanks in advance!

Since Tesla does not yet offer winter wheel sets for the model Y. I too have ordered my winter wheels...
Michelin X-Ice Snow (replaces X-Ice 3's) - Tire Rack
19" TST wheels from Tsportline
Model Y TPMS - purchased direct from local Tesla Service Center

I'm going to put the new winter tires on the OEM wheels and the summer tires (all seasons) on the new wheels.

My MY is blue, but here’s my winter set-up:
Gemini rims plus Pirelli Winter Sottizero 3.
(Will use stock tires on Martian satin black, extra TPMS from Tesla Service Center.)

As part of mobile service they were able to bring me 4 of the following:
NUT, BLACK VALVE, TESLA TPMS(1518499-01-A). ($0.50 each)
TPMS Wheel Unit, BLE, Black(1490701-01-B) ($75.00 each)
$302.00 + Tax.

If I go with the Martian wheels any thought on what would be a better color choice for a Midnight Silver Model Y?
Gunmetal or the Satin Black wheels?

Satin black would closer match the chrome delete back

I am not a fan of monochromatic so would vote black for contrast.
