Widest possible rear wheel/tire configuration?

Widest possible rear wheel/tire configuration?

My brother is now considering Tesla. He likes the wide rear wheel / tire look on Porche’s etc and asked me if wider wheels / tires can be put on the back of a MS if you have air suspension. Does anybody know?

TIA

I believe 285 is the widest I've heard of. 285/35-21. . Wider than 9" rims, playing with the offset is the key.

PleasantonS has this setup:

I am running a 275/40-20 on a 10.5 inch Vossen rim in the back with a 42mm offset and a 245/40-20 on a 9 inch rim with a 35mm offest in the front. The setup is very similar to what tran is running.

He might see this post and give more details.

I'm sure that someone would love to shoehorn a 325 width tire under the rear of a Model S. Best of luck to them, whomever they may be. But the rolling resistance would like reduce range by a considerable amount.
