Tesla Model 3 R&D | Wheel Fitment

Our job here at GetYourWheels is not only to sell wheels and tires but to also calculate the best fitment possible for cars out in the market. Today, we had the opportunity to work closely with a Tesla Model 3 owner who came by on his day off. As soon as he arrived and gave him the tour of the facility, we got right into work.

She was a tad dirty but she is pretty!

In case anyone wants to know what it looks like without the covers.

Front wheels off and the big caliper is smaller than the Model S so we can think many various wheel brands that will be able to fit over these. Also, if anyone decides to get a nice set of 3 piece forged set from Avant Garde, I can see some nice lip sizes being pulled off.

But we can't judge the size of the brake just by looking at it so we also measured that front caliper to ensure that other wheels that are asked about can fit without any issues. Also, it'll be technical info that we can use with many other manufacturers so that we can get the wheels built on the first time.

After that, we did some quick test fits with a set of Avant Garde M580 we had in stock in the 20" size.

Then, we decided to take it one step further and mounted a set of extra tires we had just to see everything put together and we believe we got the fitment down on point! 

Hopefully we can help serve the Model 3 community with your future wheel and tire needs with our new knowledge and information we have gathered with today's work! 

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us or give us a call.
