    I am ordering the S85 and thinking about getting the 21" Silvers and then converting them to greys. I am in the Bay Area. Has anyone done this on their wheels to get the exact grey color that tesla offers on the performance tires?

    If so, any recommendations on where they got this done?

    Thanks

    Why not just order the grey rims? Confused? What am I missing?

    He is getting a S85, he doesn't have the option of grey wheels.

    To answer, many people have had a lot of luck with companies that fix wheel rash on grey wheels, I would assume that the process is the same for the entire wheel.
