Lorinser makes a 19" turbine wheel. Not sure if the offset and bolt pattern and widths are right though.

Still waiting to see the 19 inch aero wheels
My understanding is that the Lorinser wheels are specfic to Mercedes and will not fit the Telsa. I am investigating whether Rial Lugano wheels will fit.
I have also been working with Elie an Al & Ed's West Hollywood to come up with a 19" turbine wheel option. If you are not familiar with Al & Ed's, they were the first to fit 22" wheels to the Model S. http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showt...World-s-First* I have heard nothing but good things about their work. In any event, here is the 19" wheel Elie is proposing:
I believe the cost woud be about $3000 with Goodyear tires mounted. Elie would also offer a trade in credit for 21" wheels/tires. I would likely get these as a second set for winter use.
What do you think?
Wow, very nice. I would definitely consider those.

artsci, is Tirerack.com reporting the center bore as 66mm or 64mm? I thought I read in another post that it was 64mm.
From what I have read elsewhere, almost all aftermarket wheels are constructed with a larger center bore so that they can fit a wider variety of vehicles. In fact, of the 32 19" wheels listed on Tirerack.com for the Model S, every one of them is advertised as shipping with centering rings for proper fitment. Outside of Tesla's OEM wheels, my guess is that we are not going to find any with the precise center bore measurement we need.
