    If price were not a factor would you order the 19" slipstreams or the 19" cyclones?

    Voted slips because the cyclone's style and equal size isn't enough to tickle my fancy compared to the slipstream's marketed increased range of up to 5%, or some arbitrary number.

    I personally don't like the look of the Slipstreams, but I'd choose them over the Cyclones because I dislike the uneven spacing of the Cyclone's vanes even more.

    Interesting. I thought the cyclones had a 3% increase in range compared to the other wheels and that is why they are the Tesla recommended wheels.

    Hmm, never saw that regarding the Cyclones, but I got that range increase claim from here. Tesla — 19" Slipstream Wheel and Winter Tire Package
