Very sleek finish on the Turbines. Painted or powdercoated?

TE's not my cup of tea on the S, but kinda nifty to see a legendary wheel on an S.

Powdercoated. Yeah, first glance I didn't like the tuner style on the car. Now that I've gotten used to them, they look right to me, especially in the 20" size. I think a thinner spoke CE28n would look better and less tuner styled.

I can't get over the weight of the wheels though, the lighter wheels are definitely felt on accel, decel, and turn-in. The car doesn't handle like my S2000s, but definitely doesn't feel like the pig that it did.

If you don't mind me asking:

1. How much were the wheels?
2. what is the offset you chose?
3. How's the ride?

1. What u would expect of true 1 piece forged aluminum..like A lot.
2. I believe the offsets were 35...I had to drill holes to accommodate the hub nut as these were not made for the Tesla.
It just so happened to have the correct pcd, widths, and offset that I could add new rubbers and go!
3. Rides like Butta!....for those that don't know, Hunter Road force balance and their Hawk-eye alignment. There is a slight rub in a half turn when reversing, that's it.

@travwill's Model S running a set of 21x9 square AG M590s we built for him in full Gloss White!

Shared this somewhere else, but have the 590 21" wheels in white on our solid white MS, quite the bright white statement ;-) but great so far. Thanks!

Great looking wheels, but beware...you're S is most likely overloading your front tires. Your tires have a lower load capacity than the factory tires. Be safe and hope you ride solo most of the time. For reference gross vehicle weight rating on a 85 is 5,710lbs.

Nitto Invo 245/30ZR22 92W
92 = 1,389lb load index

Nitto Invo 295/25ZR22 97W
97 = 1,609lb load index
----------------------------------------------------
comparison:
Factory 21" Michelin (staggered setup)

Michelin PS2 245/35ZR21 96Y
96 = 1,565 load index

Michelin PS 265/35ZR21 101Y
101 = 1,819lbs load index

----------
Factory Continental 21"

Continental ExtremeContact DW
245/35ZR21 96Y
96 = 1,565 load index

----------
Factory Goodyear 19"

Goodyear 245/45R-19 98V
98 = 1,653lbs load index

Brand new Canadian turbine look 19" wheels, called "Replika R187".
Paid $210 Canadian per wheel, fits perfectly on hub, with Tesla TPMS and Tesla center caps.
(And before you ask, the center caps fit Tesla, but I used my OEM 5 spoke center caps as I forgot to pick up the Tesla grey caps!)

Again, $210 Canadian per rim!
Thanks to Kal Tire in Toronto:
Winter Tires and Rims - Canadian Availability

Here's a closeup, too bad it was a rainy day, got "smoots" (Bjorn term) on the car prior to install:
