Tesla Offers New Wheel Option On Model 3 Performance In China

19” Power Sports aero wheels for China

The Chinese configurator for Tesla Model 3 reveals different wheels for the Performance version of the car.

Unlike the 20” Sport Wheels in North America and Europe, in China the car will be equipped with 19” Power Sports wheels, which are considered for “balanced performance and cruising range”. The aerodynamics is probably improved.

The new design looks great and we guess that many customers around the world would be happy to get them too.

The standard all-wheel drive, long-range version in all markets gets two options:

  • 18” Aero Wheels
  • 19” Sports Wheels

Best wheel option, imo

Probably made by local suppliers in order to awoid 25% import tax.

They look like typical Matchbox car wheels of the 70’s 🙂

Actually they look like Hot Wheels more than Matchbox, but that is the modern trend. I blame Hot Wheels for this fashion trend of gigantic wheels and minimal tire. Those impressions were made when we were 4-5 years old. It is what it is. People love it.

I’d love these. Just got a 3 Performance and while the 20’s with the 35 profile tires are really crisp handling, the range loss is real, and the low profile tires are going to have a hard time protecting the rims on the local severely potholed streets. An Aero 19 would be a great option.

I like the U.S. version more..
