    I'm going to order some custom forged three piece rims for the Model S that I'm expecting in the start of May.

    I was hoping that someone would be so kind, to make some measurements on theri car, if the happen to have the wheels changed.
    The company making the rims, needs the length of the centre hub, and how much the brake calipers protrudes outside the brake discs.

    Please see the attached drawing. The dimensions I need is E and F.

    I'm very happy if someone would do this for me! :)

    Don't have the measurements for you, but I did want to mention that the steering knuckle extends below the brake rotor in the front. This was an issue for me when putting on winter wheels that were 19", though with three piece, I would imagine you're going larger than 19.

    C is also important. Also rear has two calipers.
