    There shouldnt be much break dust...

    No, but the wheels on my Roadster sure do get dirtier a lot faster than the rest of the car anyways.

    For me, the area behind the front wheels gets dirtier than the wheels themselves.

    That was my idea (and hope) as well.
    And didn't Tesla actually use Lorinser RS8's on the Model S Prototype?

    digging up an older thread.... after all the discussion of 19" vs. 21" rims I'd go for 19" turbines in a heartbeat if Tesla offered them.

    Related, I would like to see 20" turbine wheels that are designed to do a better job of protecting the wheel. The current wheels are set outside the protection of the tire and are very prone to curb damage. A different tire may help.

    So of what I understand, VW has similar rims to Tesla
