TST wheels have been designed and manufactured to be fully compatible with the Tesla Model S. The wheels are hubcentric and load rated for the Model S. TST wheels accept factory tires, center caps, tpms sensors, and install with factory lug nuts (therefore these are not included with order).
The TST wheels are compatible with Tesla’s 19” tires for optimal fitment. You can use both the Michelin Primacy MXM4, or, the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2 245/45-19" that comes with the factory 19x8" wheels. The Model TST is 19x8.5" (both front and rear).
TST wheels accept factory tires, center caps, tpms sensors, and install with factory lug nuts (therefore these are not included with order). However, the TST Wheels do come with corresponding center caps which are interchangeable with your Tesla factory center caps. The wheels are hubcentric and load rated for the Model S specifically (to an estimated GVWR of 5900 lbs).
Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD): 5x120; Center bore: 64.1 (no hub centering rings / spacers required)
Offset: 35mm - which moves the position of the TST wheel 10mm to outside (compared to the factory 19” wheel). Note: this results in a slightly more aggressive stance.
Tesla factory 19" wheel: 19x8.0"+40; Factory tire size: 245/45R-19"
Model TST wheel: 19x8.5"+35; Recommended tire size: 245/45R-19"
In-house weight testing results: Tesla factory 19" wheel weight, 29.8 lbs.; TST wheel weight, 29.6 lbs.*
*Weight testing executed with high-performance in-house scale, but, note: measurements may vary; regardless of variance - it was concluded from internal testing that wheel weight differences are minimal/negligible

Do the TST wheels retain factory center caps, tpms sensors, and lug nuts?
Yes, the TST wheel was purposely designed with this in mind.
Do I need to change the color of my existing lug nuts/lug nut covers and center cap to correspond to my new TST wheels?
That's an aesthetic decision only you can make. If you decide to use a compatible color, these parts may be purchased from the parts department at your local Service Center.
Are the Tesla factory center caps the same size for 19" and 21" wheels?
Yes, Tesla factory center caps are the same size for both 19” and 21” wheels.
Are the wheels hub centric, thus requiring no hub centering rings (spacers)?
No hub center rings / spacers are needed as the TST wheels have been designed specifically with the 19” stock/factory Model S wheels compatibility in mind.
Do the grey and silver color variants correspond to the Tesla factory wheels?
Indeed, they are similar and correspond very nicely. Note: these are not an exact “match” but will be pleasing to the eye in a similar manner as evidenced in our Gallery tab.
When you mention the TST wheels are compatible with factory 19" tires, does that mean that the wheel has the same dimensions as the factory wheels or just that the tires will fit?
You can use both the Michelin Primacy MXM4 or the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2 245/45-19" that comes on the factory 19x8" wheels. The TST wheel is 19x8.5".
Is the width and offset identical to factory wheels?
Width is .5" greater. Offset is +35mm which pushes the wheel/tire out about 10mm. Adds a bit more of an aggressive stance to the look of the car, something that most owners desire. And, yes, the 8.5" accommodates the 245/45-19" tire.
Are the TST wheels forged or cast?
The TST wheels are low pressure cast - 690kg.
What is the warranty on TST wheels?
3-Year Structural Warranty. 1-Year Limited Surface Finish Warranty. Please note: we understand many of you pre-order parts prior to the arrival of your Tesla. Kindly inspect each box within 48 hours of delivery to ensure the integrity of your order. Please notify us no later 72 hours if what you received is incorrect or damaged. Any claims made after 72 hours of receipt will not be honored.
How long until my TST wheels arrive after my order?
We target shipping within 1 to 3 weeks from the date you place your order.
Are these wheels shipped internationally?
Yes! A large number of our customers are outside of the U.S. International shipping is executed via FedEx International and may be selected upon checkout.
We’ve included reference images for all of the color options below. T-Sportline TST wheels have been designed and manufactured to be fully compatible with the Tesla Model S. The wheels are hubcentric and load rated for the Model S. TST wheels accept factory tires, center caps, tpms sensors, and install with factory lug nuts (therefore these are not included with order).
We're proud to note that the T Sportline TST Aftermarket Wheels have undergone rigorous independent testing and meets the SAE J2530 standard.
A few years ago, SEMA and its Wheel & Tire Council (WTC) worked with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) to develop an industry testing practice for aftermarket wheels. SAE J2530 (Aftermarket Wheels Performance Requirements and Testing Procedures) outlines performance and sampling guidelines, testing procedures and marking requirements for aftermarket wheels used on cars, light trucks and multipurpose vehicles. The document identifies three main areas of testing, including cornering and radial fatigue and impact strength.
SEMA and the WTC strongly support J2530 and urge manufacturers to adopt its recommended practices.
“Consumer safety was the driving force in the development of these guidelines,” said George Finch of Carlisle Tire and Wheel and WTC’s science and technology chairman. “It’s a way for manufacturers who care about safety to differentiate themselves.”
Three test machines are required for the SAE J2530 radial fatigue, cornering fatigue and impact fatigue tests. They are designed to fatigue all of the metal components and design features of an individual wheel.
The radial test fatigues the metal in the rim flanges of the wheel, the section that holds the tire onto the wheel and is loaded through the radial axis of the centerline of the wheel. This test also fatigues the metal in the spoke features of the wheel, which carries the load of the vehicle from the hub to the center disc and then to the barrel of the wheel. With every revolution of the wheel, the components are compressed under load as the test load passes over the tire footprint load point and then relaxes after the load has passed. This movement fatigues the metal through the wheel as if it were mounted on the vehicle.
The cornering test (a.k.a. rotary fatigue) fatigues the metal in the hub and the center disc as it pertains to the mounting pattern all the way out to the connection points of the barrel part of the wheel. This is the most stringent of the three tests, as it exercises the portions of the wheel that are subjected to the most movement under load. This test represents the wheels that steer a vehicle and simulates a cornering maneuver, the point at which wheels are subjected to the greatest cornering forces.
The lateral curb impact is designed to simulate hitting a curb and causing a shock injury to the wheel from the side. The applied impact energy determines if the wheel can sustain an injury from a side impact and not break or crack the rim flange, causing air loss to the tire. This immediate burst of energy can also cause the mounting pattern or center disc to crack, break or separate.
These three tests are staples for benchmark testing in the wheel industry. If any wheel has a design flaw or a material weakness, it will be presented and found during these tests. The SAE and WTC have done a great job in developing this testing standard to establish a set of industry-recommended minimum guidelines for the wheel industry.
The following videos have been published on Youtube and showcase Model S owners who have installed the aftermarket TST wheels on their Model S.
The first video* below features footage from TMC Connect 2014 in Monterey, CA - a great success for Tesla Motors Club as well as the entire Tesla community. It features one of the early adopters of the Model TST 19×8.5 wheel who made the trek from New Jersey all the way to Monterey, CA in his Matte Satin Green Model S on Matte Black TST Wheels. The cross country road trip called Supercharging Across America was organized by fellow community member @teslaroadtrip. One Tesla enthusiast, @calvinklesmith shot a video while they were stopped in Wisconsin.
