Force upgrade of wheels ?

Force upgrade of wheels ?

Anybody got involuntary order change to their Model 3? I ordered my Model 3 long range , in black and aero wheels on 9/14.

Today, 9/17/18, I got delivery schedule request. 15 mins later, I got another email from Tesla which changed my order to the upgraded 19 inch wheels.

This is my 1st comment and 1st order with Tesla

Did you order an AWD or Performance? Maybe that is why? Maybe Tesla is requiring the 19" wheels fro AWD or Performance now? I do not know

Did the other OP delete the other thread related to this topic? It is suddenly gone

RWD with long range battery only

That happened to me. I got three random order change emails. The first two were my same configuration, silver P3D-. The third added the $5000 performance upgrade package and shortly after I got a call to schedule delivery. The ISA got it corrected. Just not sure if I am getting delivered on the date they gave me, so expecting that to possibly fall through. Hope for the best expect the worst.

Sorry you have to deal with this situation. What a waste of your time...

mcm_94539 | 17 september 2018

Crossing my fingers. Seems simple to cancel or delay my order, if they don't want to deliver what I ask for yet.

natefl | 17 september 2018

Stuff happens, I get that. As long as Tesla corrects the issue and we get our tax credit I think everything will be okay

Same here.Black LR, RWD, aero, Delivery date 9/23. Today I received an email and my model 3 auto updated 19” sport rim.

The cars that are already built have 19's on them. If you want 18's it'll take longer. Other poster got the upgrade no charge.

mcm_94539 | 18 september 2018

I see, Black paint and black rims are nice . And the option to put on the hub cap to save 5 miles is nice.

Thanks for the info. SROMODA

Are they still offering that upgrade for free? Any of you in this situation in Socal I would be willing to swap you my 18's and Aero covers + a little cash for your 19's

mcm_94539 | 18 september 2018

Not in SoCal, I suddenly got no more email from Tesla. Let see what happen this week.

RES IPSA | 18 september 2018

I think the 18" wheels with the Aero covers off look great... even better than the 19" wheels and rims.

I did have to buy the caps for $50 from the Tesla website though

lbowroom | 18 september 2018

What? They come off? Kidding. I have my center cap kit all ready to go along with 15mm and 20mm spacers. Car scheduled to deliver the 30th. However, I think a set of powder-coated 19s would look better.

RES IPSA | 18 september 2018

Yes... if powder coated, the 19" would look awesome. I do not like the look "silver with black in the middle"

I see the 19" wheels at the supercharger, and I am glad I have my no extra cost (well... I guess $50) 18" dark grey rims. Don't show dirt as much

BUMP!! I want to track this.. my delivery is just a week away and I have 18inch wheels ordered. I am located 20 minutes from the factory.
AWD Blue 18inch Wheels Black interior

lbowroom | 19 september 2018

Dmaini, did you get any indication that your order was upgraded to 19s?

Vobatung | 19 september 2018

Perhaps I’ll get 19” wheels for free. I just got Vin number today, pickup on 9/26. The design details still have 19” sport wheels. But They removed 1,5k from my total price.

lbowroom | 19 september 2018

You will if you ordered the 18s. They would rather deliver stock with free 19s than build you a new one

gdepau | 19 september 2018

Funny, I order 19 inch wheels on my AWD Long range and got the 18in Aero wheels! Still waiting for the right wheels to be delivered. Picked up 8/29.

dmaini | 19 september 2018

sromoda - Not yet.. my delivery is set for home delivery on 9/27. I am hoping to get my VIN tomorrow.. as I will be in the 1 week range. BTW I already bought the Wheel Cap kit!! If I get the 19inches.. I will have to return it.. I am actually keener on the 18inch grey wheels with the cap kits.. But how can refuse $1500 and better tires from Continental. !! I also got my AWD for $4000 and pain at $1000 and have the life time premium connection as I ordered on 6/26.

dmaini | 19 september 2018

Oh.. I am 20 minutes from the Fremont factory!!

dmaini | 20 september 2018

BUMP - Anyone else see this??

ltnguyen | 20 september 2018

Delivered on 09/18. Got free 19" upgrade.
Ride a little rough but it looks nice

dmaini | 20 september 2018

Wow.. what was your booking AWD? Which color?? What location??

dmaini | 20 september 2018

What did they say?? why are they doing this??

mcm_94539 | 21 september 2018

Good news, the 19" is free upgrade, since they want me to take a car that is ready. Also, they will deliver to my house, let me inspect then final payment online in front of them. When I got this all done, I will update here again.

Hopefully, everything will be great and I can also afford a Model Y in few years!!!

dmaini | 23 september 2018

Nice!! Congrats mcm_94539. Lets see what they have for me. Since I am in Bay Area they might have all the configurations and options..

calvin940 | 23 september 2018

So, not a waste of time. In fact, a nice surprise. Excellent for those folks. Hopefully other folks can enjoy this bonus as well.

mcm_94539 | 26 september 2018

I am Bay Area also, but they wanted to deliver. I did get the 19" wheel for free. However, the VIN was changed and I have a slight back bumper cover fit issue. I got an appointment to fix and I had to deal with PG& E, since I used another VIN to get the new EV rate plan going. Overall, not bad. Got to say, I would be mad if this is Benz. But Tesla as being my local job creator and EV leader, I am ok once there are no more minor issues. Hope all of you can get upgrade also.
