    Does anyone have staggered wheels on the models S? If so, can you please post pictures? Also, what is the biggest wheel lip you can fit in the model S? Biggest rim? biggest tire? Thanks in advance!

    Hey! That's my car..lol. I'm happy to answer any questions:
    Front = 20' x 8.5" 38mm offset. 245/40-20 Falken tires
    Rear = 20" x 10" 38mm offset 275/35-20 Falken tires

    There was one time it rubbed right after I bought them. It was when I was driving at 80 mph and hit a large dip. That was two months ago (3000 miles) and no rubs since.

    I absolutely love this staggered look and performance. The ride is WAY better than the 19's IMO. Little to no sidewall flex. The 19's have huge flex mainly because the tires are non-performance. Not as harsh as the 21's. This pic is not in the LOW position.

    Thanks John for the pics,

    Beautiful look. I noticed you have Falken Tires on there. Are they the 453s, how quiet are they? Have any comparison between these tires and other tire brands?

    I'm looking at a staggered setup as well 20x9 in front and 20x10 in the back with the same tire sizes.

    Thanks much,

    Mike
