Vorsteiner V-FF 107 Wheel Set for Model 3
You may find yourself looking for aftermarket wheels to stand to out from the waves of new Teslas joining the roads each day. Without knowing any better you would plug in your car details into TireRack, and let it spit out a bunch of generic wheels and sizes that will technically fit on your car, but not most optimally. You're want something that's sharp with great fitment to accentuate the body line of the Model 3, but you're not sure where to start.
Vorsteiner comes to market with what I call “tailored off the shelf” solutions. They did all the measurements at HQ and decided what wheel specification will look and fit best for the Model 3 body. They currently offer a few styles and the V-FF 107 is one of them. A flush fitment, 20” staggered wheel set, featuring thin multi-spoke design, that is both sporty and aggressive.
Face profiles of front and rear wheels. The choice to go staggered allows the rear wheels to have a deep concave face. This execution is good for the Model 3 because there is more room to fill in the rear fenders than the front. Appropriately finished in a paint hue between dark gunmetal and matte black, with hints of metallic. Vorsteiner calls this Carbon Graphite.
With Flow Forged technology (or flow-forming). Vorsteiner was able to offer reasonably priced wheels that are lighter, wider, and stronger than any 20" factory Tesla wheels. Most OEM wheels are made out of cast construction to cut cost for the manufacturer, and this usually results in a weaker and heavier wheel. You can read about these different industry processes here.
The recommended tire size for this wheel set is 245/35/20 (front) and 285/30/20 (rear).
I personally used 275/30/20 tires on the rear wheels for the following reasons:
- 285 width is a bit excessive for a street setup and will take more toll on my efficiency consumption.
- 275/30 is closer to stock 245/45/18 diameter (+0.8%).
- I plan on reusing these tires for another set of wheels with more aggressive offsets, so I’m planning ahead with a slight stretch.
Nevertheless, this setup gave me no issues. No rubbing or modifications necessary even when my car is significantly lowered on coilovers.
Vorsteiner currently offers 3 different wheel sets for the Model 3, and they all carry the same philosophy. Clean designs, flush fitment, and reduced weight. Most importantly, they eliminate any guess work for the consumer. It's as simple as picking the wheel design you like and tires to go along with them.
