Its not often we see a Tesla get work done here at the shop, but when one does come by we all get seriously excited. ModBargain’s customer Conner came by and got his Tesla P85 a fresh set of Forgestar F14 Super Deeps all around wrapped in Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. ModExpert Sean helped out Conner with the wheel fitment and boy did it look good. The F14’s are 20×9.5 et18 all around. The tires were 245/40r20 all around which provided a pretty meaty setup. The aggressive offset helped really fill those big fenders on the Tesla. When I saw it rolling off the rack with the air suspension all the way down it seriously broke my neck! The carbon fiber center caps also helped with the carbon fiber accents inside and out of the car. In addition to the wheels, Conner also got his calipers stripped and painted. The previous paint job wasn’t done very well so he had us redo it for him. We repainted his calipers the same color using G2 caliper paint and the results looked awesome.
Overall the end product looked great. The wheels fit the car very, very well and the redone calipers makes it look much cleaner. Check out some of the pictures down below of the finished product!

Caliper paint being stripped off. It was crazy to see how easy it was for the paint to just flake off! Not a very good sign.
Ready for the G2 Yellow Paint!

Connor’s Tesla is definitely looking a lot more aggressive with the super deep F14’s all around, and the restored caliper paint definitely adds a cleaner touch. Connor’s Tesla is now ready for the road and ready to break necks (like mine).
