I’ve been looking to pre-order 19” grey TSportline turbines for my Model 3 and I’m seeking input from those familiar with swapping aftermarket rims - I have a few options and I’d like to pick one especially with the December sale prices (including shipping) reflected as such:
$0 tesla stock aero rims + $1350 TSportline rims + ~$1000 19” tires at a local tire shop = $2350 + install fees. Then I’d have aero rims+tires to keep or sell (would they have much value beyond the new tires?)
$1500 tesla sport wheels + $1350 TSportline rims =$2850 + install/swap costs at local tire shop. Then I’d have a set of Tesla OEM sport rims (not sure if they’d be worth $500 more than a complete aero rim/tire combo)
$2800 TSportline complete wheel/TPMS/Tire combo + a very minimal tire swap cost since it sounds like they are ready to go. (Again I’d have a complete aero rim/tire combo to keep or sell)
Any ideas which to choose? I’m leaning towards option 1 since it is the cheapest, and a tire shop would probably be more willing to work with me because I’m purchasing something substantial from them.
