I was at the Tesla website to configure a Model X and it seems that there isn't an option below 20".

Are any Tesla Model X owners running 17" or 18" tires?
Is there an option in store to order such combination?

I would never get 22" but even 20" would get bent by a pothole or curb. The wheels are expensive from my research and I can safely assume from my own non-Tesla tire purchases that prices go up as you get lower profile tires.

As far as I know, 20” wheels are the smallest that Tesla has ever offered on Model X. I haven’t had any problem with damaging wheels from potholes, which are plentiful where I live. They are not low profile at all. Yes, the 20” OEM tires are pricey (as I’m coming up on replacing mine and have begun to think about it), but some of the price for the OEM tires is the road-quieting feature that they have. Tire Rack shows a number of less expensive options in the same size.
