Thought it would be a good idea to start a photoshop thread of aftermarket wheels on the Model 3.

Attached all of the good photos of the car with a side view I could find.

Interested to see what the Vossen LC-106t wheel looks like photoshopped.

I did one with some HREs.. of course, I had to make the wheels a little bigger (22s?) and had to lower the car too

HRE 448R

Realize guys and gals that putting on aftermarket wheels/tires is likely to impact your EV range in a negative way, perhaps by 10% to 20%. Been there and done that on my Prius plug-in. The aftermarket wheels look great (and so do the factory wheels), but I am going to stick with the factory wheels to insure I get the advertised range. If range is not important to you, by all means go with the aftermarket option.

For wheels it's about weigh for efficiency. There are aftermarket wheels that I assume would be lighter Han the stock wheels, but of course you'll be paying a lot.

Actually, it is more than just weight, - it is wheel design (a closed design is more aerodynamic than the open spoke design), amount of offset (the more the wheel sits closer to the outside of the fender, the more turbulence) and rolling resistance of the tire (some of the Michelin tires are best).

You put some of those deep dish 20" to 22" wheels on a T3 with rubber band tires, you will pay a severe penalty in range. The guys over at Prius Chat have all of this dialed in. Maybe range isn't important to you, then go for the extreme look like some owners do on their Prii.
