    Does anyone have any experience swapping to aftermarket or different wheels on a lease? Do they have to be replaced to stock when the car goes in for a service or just at the end of the 3 year lease period?

    I remember a thread a while ago saying that Tesla refused some type of yearly service because the car wasn't stock as leased, but I can't seem to find the thread or the details.

    As an aside, for those of you with aftermarket wheels, who did your installation?

    Not sure if they would refuse to 'service' the car but they will of course only replace the std tyres if under a serviced agreement. Plus you will have to notify your insurance company you are running non OEM wheels and tyres (assuming they are not).

    I have the T-Sportline 19" wheels on a leased 85D. Have not had any issued getting the vehicle serviced. Now, they won't perform wheel/tire services (as expected), but will do alignment, brakes, etc.
