    You can order the grey caps from your Tesla service center. The part number is the one in the top row:

    FWIW IMO i'd only get the center caps. if you dont plan on using your stock rims anymore, just transfer the TPMS. the transfer is usually included in the mount service at tire shops anyway. you also don't need the lug nut covers. the silver T in the middle matches the silver lug nuts and it actually looks really good. and you also dont need the lug nuts either. just use the existing ones. therefore, you only need to spend $64 for the caps. :)

    Here are some pics of Grey TST against a grey Model S. The wheel paint color is a very close, if not exact, match to the original Dolphin Grey car color.

    detection.

    Haven't mounted them on the car yet... or taken pictures outside... but here's what I have to offer:

    IMG_4555.JPG

    There is another user who posted about a month ago on a completely unrelated thread who mounted grey TSTs on his grey right after delivery... if you can find the thread there were good pics.
    EDIT: Found the other pictures in my "collection". I have no idea who the original poster was so these are uploaded again here without any claim on them by myself.

    Is anyone using a 255/45R19 tyre with their T Sportlines? If so, please could you:

    > Post some pictures
    > Say if you have any rubbing
    > Air or coils?
    > Let me know what tyres you picked and how you like them.

    Thanks for your help.

    Me. Air suspension. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 255/45ZR19. Had a slight rub at full turn in reverse only. After 6k miles there's no more rubbing.

    thanks - that's the shine of multi-step paint correction using HD Polish and HD Adapt and then two coats of 22ple VX1 :) the wheels have 2 coats of 22ple VM1 topped with a coat of sonax polymer netshield.

    As a new member, this is my first comment on this site. Forgive me if this issue has been brought up, but as a real "turbine" pilot, I couldn't help but notice that the turbine wheels (21's or aftermarket) are not unidirectional. The right side they rotate as a "propellor" and on the left side (same wheel) they rotate like a desktop fan. I imagine the cooling effect on the brakes is negligible either way but it looks funky... From my point of view anyways. I ordered mine with the default 19's... Cheers to great car as I await my order...

    Anyone using TST sportline turbine 19"s in metallic grey with a pearl white MS? I would ordinarily choose the silver option, but these will be for my winter tires and I expect them to be covered in dirt, salt, etc. a great deal, and they would probably look kind of grey already. I am also considering the Rial Luganos in gun metal for the same reason.

    Test fitting my Winter wheels from TSportline and making sure the TPMS work. There'll be a post/video coming soon.

    Here they are on the "classic" grey and NOT in California sun! <Ha ha>
