Hitting a pothole in my Tesla Model 3 cost nearly $2700. That's a lot of money for something as simple as driving on an unmaintained road. Although Tesla only offers 20" wheels with the Model 3 Performance with Performance Package, I was determined to find some tires that were not as low profile as the original equipment Tesla tires (Michelin PS4S).
But changing wheels & tires changes many of the behaviors of a car, and can come with consequences. In this video we'll look at how much you can increase the tire sidewall by switching to 18" wheels from 20" wheels. We'll also discuss acceleration, braking, gearing, sizing, fitment, clearance, wheel curbing, aerodynamics, rolling resistance, ride comfort, wheel construction, rotational inertia, unsprung mass, and aesthetics, as they all apply to changing wheels. What difference does it make? Check out the video for full details!
