A forged rim may be right for some drivers.
Let's say you sold your 21" rims and opted for a forged 20x8.5 front and 20x10 Rear
The forged rims woud weight around 25 pounds each. I've asked Tesla how much the Turbine 21" cast alum. rim weighs - no doubt more than a forged rim rim. Should hear back soon.
So you would end up with less unsprung weight, wider tires in the rear for better traction - like 285s and a rather unique look should you want to powder coat to match body color with the rim for example.
I represent a company that makes forged rims - right here in the USA.
I'd love to see this rim in white with chrome lip on a white MS. Of course they aren't cheap at around $4,200 a set.
