    I agree, a picture of all 3 colors would be great.

    I see the weight comparison with Tesla's 21" wheel. What is the weight of Tesla's 19" standard wheel?

    You say "Accepts factory center caps (and lug nuts)"...does yours come with color matched center caps or lug nuts?

    Thank you

    That actually looks like an OEM 19" Cyclone in the picture of the weights.

    I’m 99,9 % certain the Tesla original wheel in the weight comparison is a 19’’ Tesla Cyclone wheel…

    The comparison is with the factory 19" Cyclone wheel. The standard factory wheel is 30+lbs. We'll have a picture up this week of the weight.

    Our wheels fit the factory center caps and factory lug nuts. Lug nuts and center caps can be purchased from the parts department at your local service center.

    hi tsportline,
    would you also deliver to Europe?
    do you have a technical specification for the rim?
    we need a TÜV appraisals for approval, or something like that
    thank you

    I would recommend against the stock lug nuts - I swap wheels frequently for the track, and I found that the chrome outer layer gets mangled easily. I switched to Gorilla 61147CX which fit perfectly (they actually have slightly larger mating surface than the stock lug nuts), are one piece, and use the same size socket. If you want black, you can get the 61147BCX. Plus, they are cheaper than the stock lug nuts.

    Thank you. Now I wait for the pictures to decide to go with grey or black.

    +1 for seeing the three finishes next to each other. My better half has always had a thing for the Turbine wheels, but I did not want the 21" rims, so this could be a good thing.

    TSportline, does your silver correspond to the look/finish of Tesla's silver wheels? I would like to assume so, but since you don't have a photo/comparison, I just have to ask...

    Other than that, they look great, thanks!

    Tsportline, same question for the gray? Will it match the Tesla gray used on the 21 inch wheels? My current wheels are silver so I will need gray center caps and lug nuts. Also, never saw the offset question answered.
    Thanks!

    Below is a pic of our TST grey next to a factory 21" Turbine both with factory Tesla grey caps. These are our first production wheels that'll we'll be shooting on a couple Model S' this weekend. Our grey is one shade off to the lighter side against the factory wheel.

    Gotta say I like the bluish tinge on the TST, it is going to look great with my Sequoia Green. I wish it was even darker and bluer, like the Gunmetal Rials!

    totally disagree. I wish it was an exact match to the OEM wheels but they are close enough to my liking.
