Lowered Wheel Fitment Guide:

Again, we have seen way too many Model 3’s running around with poorly fitted aftermarket wheels and lowering the car makes it much more obvious. You can comb through forums and Facebook posts but in the end, almost everyone wants a nice flush fitment that won’t rub. Trust our guide and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed with extra wheel gap or rubbing.

Don’t be like these unfortunate souls:

  • Tesla Model 3 AG 19x8.5 Weak Fitment

So here are our suggested fitments for a lowered Model 3 by width with tire size recommendations. The “et” indicates offset while the numbers are the offset range. For example et30-33 means that an offset of 30, 31, 32, and 33 are all recommended for a lowered Model 3 and will look flush.
