The MX117 forged wheel is engineered specifically for the Tesla Model X owner who wants to gain more functionality by saving weight and retaining maximum range. The MX117 wheels come staggered with a setup of 22x9.0 Front and 22x10.0 Rear. The MX117 wheels are all about factory compatibility. Model X owners can use factory Tesla center caps, factory lug nuts, factory TPMS and factory tires on the MX117 forged wheel.
The MX115 are available in six color options; Matte Black, Gloss Black, Matte Grey, Brushed Satin, Brushed Nickel, and Ghost Gold. Below you can find pictures of Matte Black, more photos will be added as soon as they are available.
MX117 wheels accept factory center caps, tpms sensors, and install with factory lug nuts (therefore these are not included with order). However, the MX117 come with corresponding T Sportline center caps which are interchangeable with your Tesla factory center caps. The wheels are hubcentric and load rated for the Model X specifically.
Do the MX117 wheels retain factory center caps, tpms sensors, and lug nuts?
Yes, the MX117 forged 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 MX117 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 20" and 22" wheels?
Yes, Tesla factory center caps are the same size for both 20” and 22” wheels.
Are the wheels hub centric, thus requiring no hub centering rings (spacers)?
No hub center rings / spacers are needed as the MX117 wheels have been designed specifically with the 22” stock/factory Model X wheels compatibility in mind.
Do you offer non-staggered wheels?
The MX117 only are offered as a staggered option.
Are these MX117 wheels forged or cast?
The MX117 wheels are forged.
What is the difference between forged and cast wheels?
Regarding forged wheels, 6061-T6 alloy is physically forged on a 6000 ton press into the wheel shape while remaining in a solid state while being frequently heated. The forging is then machined on a lathe, then on a CNC machine. After that, the forged wheel is then prepped and powder-coated. The advantages over cast wheels are: less porosity in aluminum, better fatigue and life/strength, and lighter weight. The reason for the price increase for forged wheels is that the process is more labor intensive and multiple processes are needed (as noted here) to produce a final superior product. Regarding cast wheels, alloy is heated above its melting temperature and poured into a mold where it solidifies. When you melt alloy to cast it, the grain size is free to expand. When it cooks back to a solid, the grain structure is courser and more random, decreasing its strength versus the process used for forged wheels.
