Regular 19's vs. Cyclones?

Take a look at T-sportsline's TST if you want different 19's but don't think the $2500 for the cyclones is worth it.

TST Tesla Aftermarket Wheel 19x8.5

This is what I did. I liked the look of the turbine wheel the best but didn't want to go with 21's. And you can get the Tsportline's for less than the cyclones, of which I didn't really like the look of anyway.

Dont know how anyone could get the Cyclones when the 19' T-Sportline turbines exist, the spokes on the Cyclones are not attractive, just not a good looking rim. Even the stock 19's look better and cost nothing. And the Sportline's are cheaper and better looking. :wink:

This was a dropped thread, but I'd be curious to know if there's any difference in efficiency between the Sportlines and the Cyclones.

19' TST wheels and possible increased energy usage

I was the OP for this thread. I have since changed to Pirelli Cinturato P7 all season plus tires, and my energy use dramatically went down. It now appears to be on-par with the OEM 19's wheels.

Regarding the 19" standard wheels, I have heard suggestions that they can be powder coated the Tesla grey color and end up looking surprisingly nice.

I'm considering this for my spare set of standard 19"s and would like to see it on a white car, if anyone can share has a pic.

Exactly what I have. Pics here: Powder Coating Wheels - Page 19
 
Nice! Though the uneven chrome trim between the doors is making me twitch.

This is something tesla really struggles with!! As long as the issue isn't with the long piece of bright work along the top it's all just tension mounted and it's very easy to align yourself vs waiting for the techs to finally do it. The last time I was there they showed me how easy it is to move it.
