    Alternative Wheels for Roadster

    Are there known aftermarket wheels in the OEM sizes? Other sizes?

    I did a search on this and couldn't find anything.

    Thanks.

    There are many threads about this. This is the sticky one: 2.5 Roadster / Roadster Sport Tire Thread
    Unfortunately there aren't really much good tires you can use for the Roadster.

    you should look at the wheels that fit lotus Elise they should be the same seizes and fit the tesla as far as I can understand. also you can look at tire charts to see if you can change seizes without disturbing the general geometry. just be careful not going too much wider since you will create more resistance reducing your range.......... bla bla bla. etc..

    good luck!

    Thanks. This thread seems to be about tires. I'm looking for different wheels to use with the stock tires (preferably).

    The Elise wheels are a 4-bolt design and the Tesla is a 5-bolt. So, even though the Elise sizes would be perfect (I don't know about offset), they obviously won't work.

    That thread seems to be about tires. But here is one I found that has something on wheels:

    Different tires and wheels? Lower profile? Wider? Taller?

    Extracting from a link I found in Dragon's link above:

    Volk (a division of Rays) may make a custom wheel that would work (CE 28N is the style)

    Stellacorse wheels for the Elise have been made in one custom pair by Sector 111. I've sent them a note to see if they could do more.

    There is a wheel shown on a pace-germany.com picture, but pace germany is a car retailer not a wheel OEM or retailer.
