    Can anyone tell me if Rims with these specs fit?

    20X9" Wheels with an ET/Offset of 35
    Is the 9" width a problem? I would like to use these in combination with a 245/40R20 Tire. (which would put the diameter close to the stock wheels)

    Also a center bore of 63,4 will that fir or is it exactly 64 on the model S?

    Can't comment on the center bore, because the wheel manufacturer is sending me hub rings (thought it was 65 though). But I bought 20x9" with 35 offset and 245/40R20 tires. Everything gets here this week, will let you know if it works out and post pictures.

    Might rub a little in the front when turning the wheels to full left or right. For the most part, it'll be fine is my guess.

    What tires are you using?

    i would love to see a pic of a Model S with 20'' rims - personally I have always thought the 19'' look a little too small on the car while the 21'' look a little too big and flashy. 20'' should be a perfect compromise.

    Tires are open, suggestions are welcome.
    Was thinking for the winter: Continental WinterContact TS 830

    I went with Conti Extreme Contact DWS 245/40ZR20. 50k mile tread warranty on an all season tire. I live in AZ, so I don't have any snow concerns. In fact I could probably run summer tires all year.
