What Fits A Tesla Model S?

June 30, 2022

Best Tesla Model S Builds and Recommended Fitment Specs

Hey everyone! We're back at it with another installment of our "What Fits?" series, this time taking a look at the Tesla Model S. These cars are becoming more and more popular, we've got some jumping into our gallery regularly, and we'll be honest - they're fast as hell. Whether or not you care about the electric vs. gasoline debate, these cars are seriously fast. They're fun, they're cool, and they look really good lowered.

They're also prime candidates for some solid wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades, but before you start your build, you have to know what fits. And that's why we're here - check out the best fitment specs for a Tesla Model S, as well as some of our favorite entries from the gallery.

What Is The Best Wheel Size For A Tesla Model S?

Right off the bat, what fits best on a Model S? We're big fans of a 20x10 setup up front and 20x11s in the rear, as a staggered setup will probably suit you much better than if the front and rear wheels were the same sizes. As far as offset goes, we'd recommend a +20mm in the front, maybe +25mm if you want to get crazy with it.

You'll see an entry below that features 20x11 +28 wheels in the back, and this looks good too - as a bonus, you can fit some meatier tires on this setup. Maybe a 305 if you're feeling adventurous.

All in all, though, stick with some 20s for your Model S build, and you'll be just fine.

What Tesla Model S Builds Look The Best?

Now that we know the best fitment for a Model S, we should give you some examples of what they look like with different-sized wheels. Check out a few of our favorite Model S builds from the gallery below:

2016 Tesla S 70 with Volk TE37 wheels

Featured Tesla Model S Build 1: Volk TE37 Wheels & Michelin Pilot Sport Tires

The first car we'll look at today is a 2016 Tesla Model S - this one's baby blue. Regular blue? Either way, it's cool looking and has some lime green calipers. The first thing you'll notice is that this thing is rocking some baller wheels in the Volk TE37 - it's the most conservative setup we're looking at, but it's pulled off well.

In the front, you've got 19x9.5 +21 wheels, and in the rear, it's staggered, with 19x10.5 +22 wheels. We're balling with the tires on this model too, with Michelin Pilot Sport 4s, and it's dumped on an Air Lift air suspension. Cool car.

Again, this is one of the more conservative builds we'll see, so there are plenty of options if you want to go a bit more aggressive, but as it stands, it looks really good. There's no rubbing, no spacers, and it's just a super functional setup. Plus, you can't go wrong with a set of TEs.

2017 Tesla Model S with Rohana RFX11 wheels

Featured Tesla Model S Build 2: Rohana RFX11 Wheels & Nanking NS-25 Tires

The second car we're looking at is a 2017 Model S, and this one's a little bigger. We've got Rohanas on here, with 20x10 +25's up front and 20x11 +28's in the back. As far as tires go, we've got some Nankings too.

This car is on stock suspension, so we want the larger diameter wheel with a little less aggressive offset, but it is wider, so it counteracts perfectly. Stock suspensions, though, can swallow up a 20-inch wheel, even on OEM setups, but this is done well. There's no rubbing, no scraping, no fender mods, no trimming, and no spacers, so a really clean build overall.

This is the basis for our recommendation from earlier - you can go with 19s for sure, but for the best look no matter the suspension situation, a 20-inch wheel is the move.

2015 Tesla Model S with Vossen VPS 314 wheels

Featured Tesla Model S Build 3: Vossen VPS Wheels & Michelin Pilot Sport Tires

So you just saw what the 20s look like on a Model S - should we go even bigger? We've got 22s on this one, baby. It's a Model S of course, and we're on some Vossen VPS 314s. In the front, they're 22x9 +25, and in the rear, they're 22x10.5 +38, so less of an aggressive rear fitment here. The front is similar to what we saw before, and we're still rocking the Michelin Pilot Sport 4s like the first car we highlighted.

This is also on stock suspension - no rubbing, no scrubbing, and no spacers, so the good news is that 22s can fit pretty well on a Model S with no other mods. You could even go a bit lower if you wanted to throw it on some air. Honestly, it's crazy to think that a car on stock suspension can take 22s, but they can - this is as aggressive as you'll want to go with the offset, though.
