Swapping Model X 22” wheels for 19”

I just bought a used Model X with 22” silver wheels from Tesla. After research, I realized that 19” will be better for range and tire durability. How can I swap my 22s for 19s? Do I buy the 19s from Tesla and then sell the 22s? Will Tesla trade? Are there third parties who will do the trade? Please advise.

I don't think Tesla does trades. You could buy 19's from Tesla or go aftermarket. Just make sure they are rated for the weight of the X. There are a few vendors on here. Not sure if they sell 19's though for the X. Try selling the 22's

Check Tsportline or unplugged performance.

@akhafagi if you succeed in putting 19s on your MX for all season (non-winter) use you would be one of the only owners I know of to do this. Tire and wheel options are pretty limited for this super heavy SUV. I’ve searched every forum post or blog possible and have not found evidence to date of any model x owners rolling on 19s outside of the winter tire setup.

If you did this I’m sure this forum would be VERY interested in how it goes for you and efficiency gains in particular. Good luck!

I just realized that 19s for model x are only for winter. That makes more sense. May be I will consider the 19s for next winter. I won’t gamble with using 19s all season. For now, I am still interested in the range and I would definitely try to get 20s.
 
I'd like to try 19" all season as I'm mainly interested in ride quality. more efficiency and range is bonus. but I still want the look of the black turbines. anyone got any leads for black 19" turbines for rated for model X?
Actually, I am yet to find any 19”wheels with all season tires rated for model X. If you know where to find them please let me know. I am fine with silver.
