TSportline Wheels - Directional?

In good forum etiquette, I tried searching before I started a new thread. I'm kind of weird because some details matter to me and some don't. I have been strongly considering the TSportline 19" Metallic Gray wheels as a 19" solution for the Tesla 21" Turbines - this is a common goal, that's why TSportline offered them!

However it would appear that the Tesla's 21s are direction - the fan blades (if you will) seem angled back regardless if you're looking at the right or left side of the car. However the TSportline wheels do NOT appear to be directional, thus not a true solution for Teslas 21s.

Am I correct? Is Tesla photoshopping their cars so their 21s are truly NOT directional? Or are most people fine with their TSportline wheels not being an exact directional match for Teslas 21" Turbines.

These first two pics are from the Tesla builder. AS you can see, the turbine blades at the top of the wheels on both sides point toward the rear.



However, from this picture of a real owner's car (Props and credit to whoever's car this is - beautiful!) the it's obvious that the blades are not directional as they don't match the Tesla above and the blades on the top of the wheel point toward the front.


While I'm slightly disappointed for the lack of symmetry, at least this this issue on my mind is laid to rest. Tesla needs to fix their imaging system to not mirror each side!!!
