    Does anyone have a real photo (not a rendering from the website) of the slipstreams ON a model S? I've searched, could not find.

    **Deleted pic - they are the old cyclones**

    Not a great pic - but I parked next to a newly delivered 85D last night picking up some Indian takeout and spotted the new wheels.

    When they first appeared on the website, I was super jealous, but after seeing them in person, I think TSportline did a better job of sizing down the cyclone style wheels for 19". A couple of local owners have those and they look nice.
     
  3. Those are the old Cyclone, not the Slipstream

    Huh... Thanks for pointing that out! I will remove that pic so as not to confuse others.

    Saw the new Slipstream wheels in person today and they are more appealing to the eye than the silver cyclone wheels.

    They look cheap. Outside edge is too thick. If it was more thin it would look better.

    Saw them in person and said "those are fugly"

    Stock 19's before look WAY better. Heck even the Aero rims look better!

    I think they would look a lot better if they were dark instead of the silver

    They look too cluttered, for lack of a better term.
