While the wheel is lighter, how much heavier is the tire with the larger sidewall?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75549Margaux & J-B Roussel
Nice look, I would love it even better I silver.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75550grandinosour
It would be cheaper to just trade the tesla junk in for a big honking v8 powered truck with wheels designed to take on the normal everyday driving.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75551pectorialis
Really appreciate this follow up to the pothole debacle. Thanks for taking us through it.
I'm also very interested in the Tesla, and the experiences you're having with it 🙂September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75552Graham Hamilton
I'd guess the 18" wheel also gives many more options for winter tyres.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75553J Will
Did you call those high profile tires?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75554T S
If you would like to know, how much ride improved – after a month replace wheels back to originals. You will feel the difference thenSeptember 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75555Ed Jack
hay j what if u use the new wheels more then c if the tier wear out the high spot?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75556Zac Design
Will the speed differentiate with 20 and now 18?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75557Nathan Weber
This video comes on point! Thinking about downsizing my wheels too! From 18inches to 17inches on my Alfa MiTo QV. Do you recommend keeping the OE tire/rim width?

I hope elon watches this, and allows this as an option.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75559Austin Hampton

Excellent comparison! Thanks for sharing Jason 🙂September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75561Nick Wolford
On my dad's used pickup truck, he got rid of the goofy 22" chrome wheels (with maybe 2" of sidewall) for regular 17" OEM wheels with 5"+ of sidewall and the ride difference was VERY noticeable. It made it actually feel like the Cadillac it was and not some slammed garbage.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75562Matt Herman
I would talk to the city that the pole was in and request them pay for the repairs of the tires. I cracked my wheel in my jeep and my city paid for the repairs.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75563Bryan Welch
I love this channel but man the front of that car is ugly. I hate Tesla.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75564bashpr0mpt

That TPMS sensor stem looks like a Siemens VDO sensor 😊September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75567Lineage2Ertheia
ok guys, allgo for 10 inch wheels.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75568rick barajas
It’s 1:30am and I’m laying here watching this. I don’t have a Tesla 😅September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75569JustAnotherBigAl
I couldn't believe that with all Jason's background and understanding of mechanical engineering, he didn't understand the standard tyre (tire for you Yanks) codes. For a 245-45-20 tyre the codes are;
245 – the width of the tyre in millimetres,
45 – the height of the profile expressed as a percentage of the width and
20 – the diameter of the rim in inches.
What's also important when changing tyres that the circumference remain constant. Any differences will affect the speedometer and acceleration. When you do the maths bwtween the 20" and the 18" tryes there is only a difference of about 12mm in circumference, therefore almost identical.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75570Juan Siahaan
Why the original tires have no rim guard? I used to have 205/60 R16 and they had rim guards.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75571Javier Jr Serrano
Send that wheel to EXPRESS WHEEL REPAIR AND POWDER COATING remember the s2k wheelsSeptember 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75572Joseph W
The only thing with the larger wheel is surely it will provide better cooling for the brakes with more air being able to be passed through?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75573Kamil F.
Broke like cheap chineese wheels not oem but I forgot… That's teslaSeptember 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75574JP dJ
Unsprung mass – if we consider the "sprung mass" at velocity and consider its inertia (its mass may amount to 4,000 lbs) then I would argue sprung and unsprung have a role reversal. The lighter wheel has less inertia and both gravity and spring/shocks pull/push it down easier to maintain wheel contact with the road. It's all relative … Nice story btw. Will forward to Tesla Perf owner.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75575pyrusbuffalant
So I have 17 inch rim with low profile tires. Ive hit some really intense potholes and stuff like that. My rims have never bent. Maybe tesla just uses bad rims or you just got a bad bunch. Idk but from my exp I think rims should be able to go over potholes from time to time. Especially considering theyre a company from cali where the roads are less than ideal ( I live in cali so I know from personal exp). Maybe it has to do with weight not 100% sure but thats just my thoughts on the whole thing. If these end up getting messed up maybe go aftermarket?September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75576blackericdenice
You guys always buy them hiper brakes and the standard brakes will stop the car just fine.
I do understand why you want higher profile tires. I hit a hole in my 2016 F165 and bent a stock $500 18 inch wheel, put a knot on a brand new $218 Michelin tire and knock my truck slightly out of line.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75577tubester4567
How can the wheel diameter matter if the overall diameter is the same?? The better 0-60 times is most likely because of less weight. 40 pounds less car to push, and theres also less rolling resistance with the thinner tyre.September 5, 2019 at 10:17 am #75578Dino Rei
I´d like to know where these wheels are made.
What´s the company who provides the wheels to Tesla?
I heard the name T Sportline but the OEM is what I want to know.
