I don't have BMW branded wheels but I have wheels that were made for an F10 BMW 5 series. The F10 has the best offset and wheels size out of the BMW lineup that closely matches what our Model S needs. These are HRE P43SC 20x9 +27, 20x10 +40 and they fit perfectly. I could even space them out another 5mm if I wanted it a little more flush since I'm lowered.

I use these lugs, please don't re-use the Tesla lugs, they are complete garbage.
(M14 x 1.5 Lug Nuts)
The 5 series uses 72.6mm hub bore, you can easily find metal or plastic adapters to 64.1mm, plenty on amazon and ebay.
... I was going to go with some forged BMW M5 wheels until I stumbled across the HREs.
how are your wheels holding up? I have some 21” HRE S101’s off my M6 that I didn’t know would fit the model S. Can you please tell me everything I’d need to make them fit? I know you mentioned hubcentric adapter, how about the lug nuts? Offsets were actually m5 so I used spacers on the M6, don’t think I’ll have an issue there.
thanks in advance.
All you need are the hub centric rings (optional but recommended) and lug nuts. You can reuse stock lug nuts IF they fit in the lug nut holes of the wheels, otherwise you need any M14 x 1.5 lug nuts. I recommend not using the stock lug nuts, especially if you have the old version, since they can deform and cause major problems when removing/tightening them.
Do you know the offsets of the wheels? They should be etched into the back of the wheel somewhere.
