Here you go folks! An exclusive first look at the forged Model 3 performance wheels from the referral program.

After a seemingly long delay it appears the forged performance wheels are almost ready to go for referral winners who selected them as their prize.
No other details at this time other than the car was fitted with Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires but they were spotted on a Tesla owned Model 3 and sent to me from a twitter follower @BLKMDL3

Ooh, spindly!

Now I have to decide which wheels to sell and which to keep. :)

The picture that was shown in the Tesla app actually looks pretty close to the final product.

Wow, those are SERIOUS.
Looks like HQ is gunning to take the sport sedan track crown away from the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio :)
Hope Motor Trend does a rematch with these on.
I hope Tesla provides the option to have an actual street tire mounted instead of these track tires.

I'll bet you can feel them wearing away as you drive to the grocery store.
Prolly pretty salable/tradeable, no? Those are $300 USD tires, even from a discount place.

I'm definitely with you, it's a perfect track setup but this tire is waaayyyy too intense for general use. It would be wonderful if they'd offer the Sport PS4 as an alternate.
But knowing how they operate and love to keep the choices to a minimum I'm thinking that this is gonna be take-it-or-leave it proposition.

These are NOT gonna be the tire it is shipped with. These were on for a specific event that will be publicized soon. They will ship with PS4S probably.

Couple things.....LOVE the rims!!! What size are they specc‘ed at? 19”, 20”? I’m assuming they are flow forged and not cast? Secondly, @SoFlaModel3 and @kautrea are you selling the tires or rims? Or both? Lastly will they fit the hub on a P3D+?

Those should be 20s, and they should be 9" wide.

If by "P3D+", you mean Performance, yes. The car in the photo is a Performance.
And for the brief amount of time that new mystery wheels appeared in the parts catalog, they had both +40 and +34 versions. The +34 version would be for Performance cars.

If anyone who is getting these and doesn't like them and is going to sell theirs I would be interested in purchasing.

I will be selling rims+tires as I have the 19” sports, so no need for tires that won’t fit.
