    Doesn't look too different from the Mak Bimmer Blacks that I got. Will be installing them on Tuesday, then post pics. But I did before always when thinking photoshop the rims to the car to see how it'd look ;)

    I can only comment on the looks,

    …and everyone has an esthetic preference. Personally, judging from the picture in your link, and this one:

    …I prefer these Brocks to Tesla’s own 19’’ default 10-spoke and the Cyclones. I also prefer them to the Rial Luganos and the wheels Mario has ordered (Sorry Mario :redface: )…

    Full disclosure: If getting a MS of my own was an option, I would want winter wheels with low aerodynamic drag. And the only wheels that I am aware of that fit that description and the MS are Tesla’s own Aero Wheels. But I would try to get an unpainted set, and then powder coat those in some dark, matte gunmetal color. And of course not as Tesla paints them, but instead the entire wheels. There is a photoshopped picture somewhere on the forum of what that could look like. (And I would probably want a second set of such wheels as summer wheels as well…)

    compare weight too as this would affect handling
