Swapping 19” factory rims for 19” 3rd-party rims

I am expecting my MYLR next month. I ordered it with 19” wheels because I liked the ride, but I VERY MUCH prefer the look and design of the 20” black Tesla rims. I am contemplating switching out my factory aluminum rims for 19” black Tsportline rims that copy the design of Tesla 20” black rims. Has anyone done this? Are their issues installing the factory tires on the Tsportline rims? Is there a market for the original equipment rims?

I just got a MY with 19" wheels. I am also thinking about swapping them out for the Tsportline 19" TSV wheels(the ones that looks like induction). There should be no issues since they are the same size as the Geminis. You can even use the factory tires on them.

I just bought the same tires and picked them up at their warehouse in Downey (save $175 shipping) while still waiting for MYP to come. I'm going to pop them off immediately when I get home and list them for sale.

Tires are swappable between any wheel brand out there. Just make sure you're getting the correct wheel width that fits the existing tire, and also make sure the offset of the aftermarket wheels will properly fit onto your car.

Also if you're going that route, by getting new rims to swap out the Gemini wheels, then also reuse the existing BT TPMS sensors on the new wheels, as only those will work on the Model Y. Then when you're all said & done, you'll have a set of Gemini rims & caps that you can get rid of or hang onto.

I desperately wanted Martian 19s but they were out of stock so I went with what's available now and that's TSportline TSV 19s. I like how light the Martians are...c'est la vie.

i heard they werent as light as advertised...
They are pretty close. My Geminis weighed about 30 pounds without tires and my Martians were just under 21 on my scales. I not sure what the "exact" difference is but even the tire guy remarked how much lighter the Martians were than the Geminis.

I love how the Martian looks on the car in the gunmetal color on my car. Not so contrasty as a white/black storm trooper look and a bit more sophisticated.

I just got my white MYLR with Geminis and have been looking at Martian wheels. Could we see a picture of your car with the gunmetal Martians?

Here are some pics. The car is a little dirty from all the rain and road grime but it will give you an idea of how they look on my white/black MY with the tow hitch on.
