Tesla Model 3 In Deep Blue Metallic Stuns With Vossen Wheels

NOV 29 2018 BY VANJA KLJAIC 22

Tuned and customized electric cars are quickly becoming the norm.

With the success of the Tesla Model 3, comes the tuning industry. After all, nobody likes to see their stock car, parked next to another one of the same. Hence, people love to modify their vehicles based on their personal preferences. And thanks to its electric motors, you can’t really impact the performance of the vehicle through ECU tuning, so a lot of owners turn to the wheel industry to modify their vehicles. In turn, vehicles like this beautiful Deep Blue Metallic Tesla Model 3 can be taken to a whole new level.

For this Model 3, the wheel setup comes courtesy of Vossen Wheels. Well-known for their quality, but affordable wheel setup, Vossen has been one of the most popular wheel companies in the world in the recent few years. And their customer support, alongside build quality, ensures that this trend will continue going forward.

This mid-size electric sedan comes with a set of Vossen Hybrid Forged wheels. Basically, these wheels are a unique beast. Tracing its roots back to the classic ten-spoke styling of the Vossen CV1, the Vossen Hybrid Forged VFS-10 wheels utilizes the wheel makers’ advanced flow-forming technology to produce a lighter and stronger barrel. The VFS-10 serves as the monoblock counterpart to the two-piece Vossen x Work VWS-1, blending the affordability of a cast wheel and strength of a forged wheel.

For this build, the wheels are built in sizes of 20×9.5 in the front and 20×9.5 in the rear. Thanks to a Silver Metallic finish, they work really well with the Deep Blue Metallic exterior finish of this Model 3. In turn, the owner will have no problem differentiating his vehicle from the rest of the Model 3s out there. Furthermore, a lot of prying eyes will also be something the owner will have to get accustomed to. You can check out the full media gallery of this build right below.

I also have Vossen wheels on my Toyota Avensis!

I dont think they fit to the car. It looks weird to me. But maybe that’s just because they made the car too low.
I hate when it looks like “tuning”

FXR

Definitely too low

I’ve almost always gone with a 1-2″ drop and larger wheels/lower profile tires, on my past cars . The Model 3 is the first car that I felt that it didn’t need to be lowered nor does it need anything larger than 18″ wheels to look “right”.

I have a blue on as well and these pictures will serve to remind me to keep the car as is.

Is it that the car is lowered or that the 20 tires make it look “lowered”?

Lawrence

The 20″ wheels don’t make the overall diameter of the tires and wheels any larger, so it would still have had the same gap between the tire and fender. The tires here are “tucked”.

Is anyone else on here into modifying and tuning their cars?

I feel sad that I’ve seen the tuning industry go from old fashioned tuning where you actually physically upgrade/modify your car to cheap flash maps. Now it’s going to become wheels and suspension like the VAG scene.

I’ve always said that wheels and suspension doesn’t constitute a build and will always stand behind that. I have nothing negative to say about this car, it’s very nice, but I wouldn’t class it as modified. It’s a Tesla with wheels.

Ron Swanson's Mustache

It seems like things are still too early in the game for there to be much activity for real tuning on electric cars. Also, given that the drive trains are so much simpler mechanically, and much more tightly integrated from an engineering perspective, it’s probably going to make it hard to do much serious performance tuning on a vehicle like a Tesla.

Yeah so true

Dudamus

I cannot agree more, beautiful color. Once High School teenagers start buying EVs and modifying them then EVs will really take off in America. For now it is just fun to blow away High Schoolers in their Camaros and Chargers with a Nissan LEAF or Chevy Bolt. They are shocked and dumbfounded and think the EV was somehow tricked out. In reality they just don’t know how to drive.

“Furthermore, a lot of prying eyes will also be something the owner will have to get a custom to.”

That should say “accustomed to”.

Dudamus

Looks really sharp, if you want the best in aesthetics, performance, and luxury definitely go with the Tesla.

Richard

Looks beautiful. However the glare that comes off these types of paint finishes is a liability. It’s so bad it blinds people.

REXtoCheckMate

Superb.

Andrew

Any info on the size of the tires? Also, can the author confirm that the front and wheels are the same size? The article calls out both sizes, as if to say they are different numbers, but then the sizes are the same. Any word on if these will fit the larger performance brakes and hub lip on the P3D?
Thanks!

Zepp’s blue model 3

They are the same size front and rear, 20×9 vossen vsf-1 Wheels with Michelin PSS Tires.

Ron Swanson's Mustache

The Model 3 really looks sharp in blue.

CPO

I like the look of the wheels but the car is definitely too low.

Skip in GA

Stuns? Is this a mainstream thought? It looks like a fat Altima from behind.

952 eXcelsior

I hate saying it but from those views looks like the new Fisker

ModernMarvelFan

Lots of shots from the side. No shots from the rear? That is the ugly angle.

Then again, it is for the wheels so rear views don’t show wheels… LOL.

The Deep Metallic Blue looks beautiful but does Tesla let you actually order it? Tesla should finally triple the size of the paint shop so that they can offer 10-12 different colors (like most premium vehicles offer)
