Whell Offset option for Model S D

Whell Offset option for Model S D

Hi folks,
Does any one knows if there is a Wheel Offset option for the Model S P85D ?

should be 5-120 bolt pattern 32 offset but anything between 30-45 will work.

Offset is an option for better handling of high performance vehicles.

I really want Tesla to provide wider tires for P85D. I even had a thread to propose that. Unfortunately too many people here think 691hp is all that is needed for a supercar and I did not get a lot of support.

Tell us please, how low does the 0-60 time need to be to satisfy you?
Thanks.

Sorry, that is not the point. The point is that with a high performance of 691hp you also need to improve the wheel traction and "offset" for safety.

"Tell us please, how low does the 0-60 time need to be to satisfy you?"

You apparently did not get what I meant and that exactly why I said it't unfortunate. I'm only a handful people here which believe handling is as important, and in fact more so, than raw horsepower. Somehow I believe the reason is I'm also the few people who actually want to use the raw horsepower instead just to have the bragging right.

I'm so glad that there is at least one person who gets it.
