    Hi all,

    Quick question: will 18" Volks CE28 wheels by Rays Engineering clear the calipers on a Model 3 Performance?

    I have a set of these wheels from my last car (Subaru STi), and I'll be getting a M3P in January! I would REALLY love to use these wheels (as winters) since they are super light and have been sitting around for 3 years and already have winter tires on them. I know about the lip on the rotor hub and will get a small spacer or custom machined hub ring as others have done. My main worry is caliper clearance.

    Any insight would be very appreciated! Thanks everyone

    Before thinking about the calipers ensure that the hole size is correct. The model 3 has wheel studs the same size as a mustang and is a size up from most japanese cars.

    Depends on fitment + offset... keep in mind most JDM wheels will require drilling to 15mm lug hole to fit.
