The aftermarket wheel company made a set of custom ADV6 M.V2 SL Series forged wheels for this luxury high-performance electric seven-seater
Going with a set of aftermarket wheels for your Tesla Model X might not be the first thing that pops to mind. Seat covers, a more robust cargo net or simply, more in-car entertainment, so the kids can push through those long weekend trips - maybe. Wheels, not so much. However, as we've seen lately, modding a Model X seems to be becoming the trend these days. And this Dark Blue Matte Metallic Model X is a perfect example on how to mod your EV the right way. Certainly, the modification seen here - or any modifications whatsoever to a Model X - might not be everyone's cup of tea. But, for some owners, making their personal taste show all over their cars is a rather appealing idea.
The Tesla Model X is a full-size SUV (Sports Activity Vehicle) capable of carrying seven people across an estimated EPA range of 289 miles (465 kilometers). This particular Model X P100D is powered by a 100 kWh battery, providing the vehicle with enough power for its dual-motor setup to sprint from 0-60mph (0-97km/h) in just 2.9 seconds. Just for comparison, the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S LP750-4 will do the sprint in the same amount of time. Talk about speed. In turn, this makes the Model X P100D the perfect foundation for a rather interesting aftermarket build.
This Model X P100D comes from Speed Shield, a Tesla specialist from Dallas, Texas, and it features a set of ADV.1 Wheels and a gorgeous Dark Blue Metallic wrap. While other wheel companies may push you a similar looking set of wheels, it's all about the finer details. For a rather heavy vehicle like the Model X, especially considering it's torque-rich high-performance nature, a set of custom-made forged wheels is what's needed. Sure, you can go with a set of cheaper, cast wheels, but for a $125,000 vehicle, going with the best is probably the right option. The owner of this Dark Blue Metallic Tesla Model X P100D went with a set of ADV6 M.V2 SL Series wheels. It's a lightweight two-piece forged wheel design, featuring several design features that allow the wheels to be strong and light, making them a perfect addition for a high-performance electric vehicle like this.
For this build, the wheels are custom machined in sizes of 22x9 in the front and 22x10.5 in the rear. The wheels are adorned with a Matte Black finish and an Exposed Titanium Hardware option. The latter further reduces the wheel weight, thus improving the unsprung mass that improves both acceleration and braking performance.
The six-spoke wheel design, finished in a clean matte black finish, joined by the intricate details like the exposed titanium wheel hardware, hiding a set of yellow high-performance brake calipers, in conjunction with the gorgeous Dark Blue Matte Metallic wrap job, make this one of the most interesting Tesla Model X builds we've seen to date. While it won't be everyone's cup of tea, it certainly looks unique and impressive throughout. However, we'd love to hear your opinion about it.
