  1. No, it does not fit. Not compatible between different models

    Can I use my staggered 20 inch OEM wheels from a Model X 100D and install them on my P85D non staggered?

    Agree the wheels will fit. But you also have to consider weight ratings...the X is notably heavier and Tesla said they could not put my S wheels on my X for that reason. Of course, that will vary by wheel.

    Talked to a rep few weeks ago apparently the wheel caps are the same so the wheels should be as well.

    how does that logic make any sense?

    many cars/wheel brands share the same wheel hub cap size. this does not mean lug pattern is the same nor does it mean wheel size/offset will fit.

    The only one that is different is the model 3, the wheel caps and lug nuts are different.

    20x9 +35 front. 255/40zr20 Mich A/S 3+ (Very slight rub on reverse @ full turn. Oversized by 0.3”. 245/40r20 is the correct size, same dia as 19s, but went 255 to get an almost square look)
    20x9.5 +40 rear. 285/35zr20 Mich A/S 3+ (No rub, square look. Oversized by 0.2”)
    There are other posts/pics like mine on staggered 20” MX on MS.
    Hope this helps.

    Holy crap that looks SO good! I can't believe I haven't seen anyone else do it. But really on slight rubbing? That front wheel well looks mighty tight but great job!

    Yup they’ll fit with different tires. I was going to do that before I got the TSportlines

    Great Pics. If you have air Suspension, do they rub at all when you drive with the suspension at its Lowest point?

    Yes, I have air suspension and did not notice any rub driving forward at lowest setting when I was testing on city /local streets with speed bumps (but of course had to slow down). Slight rub on reverse only at full turn. Same reports from other posts with similar setup except I have 255 in front vs 245 and BTW, I owe my setup to them and I couldn’t be more happier. Rub is in front fender well (see pix) but really not an issue for me. Hope this helps.
    And thanks everyone for the likes.

    Thanks what I love about this group. Everyone goes above and beyond, Thank You.

    I could deal with a little rub at full tilt on the reverse. I put some big tires on my wives XC60 (yes, its a Volvo, smh) and it rubs a bit also, no biggie.

    It's a true Tesla Master Mind.

    I going with this set-up...

    - Model X 20" Offset Slipstream Wheels
    - Front: 245/40ZR20 (99Y) XL (Pilot Super Sport)
    - Rear: 285/35ZR20 (104Y) XL (Pilot Super Sport)

    Best,

    Latorre
