    Hoping to be able to buy a set of 19" take-offs from a Model S to use for snow tires. Does anyone know if the wheels and TPMS will be cross compatible?

    It is rumored by one of the companies that makes aftermarket wheels for Teslas that the Model 3 uses a different stud pattern - 5 x 114.3 mm (a common pattern for Japanese RWD/4wd performance cars), and the Model S and X use 5 x 120mm (same as BMW). If that rumor is correct they wont fit.

    The main things are the bolt pattern, offset and back-spacing. Also brake caliper clearance. That will determine if they will fit.

    Tesla should provide inserts for their Turbine wheels for the model 3. Just like they do with their aero wheels.

    This is an overlay that I would like.
