So, I just bought a Roadster. Not in love with the forged wheels. I've been searching for an alternative and there isn't much if anything actually available. One of my first stops was Sector 111, because I thought Elise wheels might fit. I quickly found out a) that Elise wheels are 4 lug not 5 lug like the Tesla and b) that Sector 111 had built 1 set of the StellaCorse wheel back in '08. Pix of this are on various threads here.
So, I just called Shinoo Mapleton, owner of Sector 111 and asked him if these wheels could be made. The answer is "Yes, if you can put together a group buy". So, here's the deal:
$3500 per set to us
Your choice of black or silver finish
Minimum group buy of 10 sets
These are very light (14lb. front, 16 lb. rear), forged, 16" front/17" rear with correct offset. They work with OEM tires.
Complete info is here:
The purpose of this group buy is not to save money with group purchasing power (there aren't really choices to save on, as far as I can tell). The purpose is to create an alternative that doesn't now exist, that meets OEM spec and has a more classic, alternative look.
What I suggest is that you simply indicate interest here by saying "I'm in, if you can put this together". I'll have to circle back to confirm, so ideally you'd send me a PM with your email or some way to contact you.
If you're not interested, that's fine; this thread is for people who are interested.
