@Mad Hungarian,

Ian....hard to tell from the photos. How much clearance is there between the barrel and the OEM brake calipers on the P3D+, have you measured yet? Particularly the rears as you know are tighter. Can you snap a few pics at your leisure?
Thanks My Friend!:)

I can do better than that, let me pull the 3D data from my files tomorrow and I’ll give you the precise number.

Thank you for the reply. In late October will all wheel sizes be available? If not what's the roll out (so to speak) plan? Thx.
For Model 3 the only size available this fall will be the 18x8.5. If the wheel is well received and demand is there we hope to be able to launch a 19x8.5 and 20x8.5 sometime next spring.
The 16" and 17" sizes for other EV models should arrive sometime in November.

Little bit :)

Clearance between rear caliper and barrel at the closest point is 3.4 mm. Note that this is near the center of the barrel and there's a lot more room on either end, so adhesive balancing weights have lots of clearance.

Dang, I was hoping you would say 18x9.5 for a set of track rims. They look great!
