Introduction of the Ohm Rotary Forged® Wheels.

The debut of Ohm Wheels includes two completely new and original wheel styles developed exclusively for Tesla vehicles.


January 02, 2020

Ohm Wheels are designed for electric vehicles. The first two Ohm wheel styles, Lightning and Proton, are engineered to fit Tesla vehicles specifically. This means that the entire wheel manufacturing process is catered exactly with Tesla applications in mind.

Ohm Lightning and Ohm Proton are styled to complement the Tesla styling cues while also enhancing range and overall performance. To achieve this, the Ohm collection is built using our trademarked Rotary Forged®/RF™ manufacturing method. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than the OE Tesla wheel. With weight reductions up to 20% in comparison to OE, rotational mass is dramatically reduced and both vehicle performance and mileage range are increased.

Ohm Ohm Wheels has taken all the guess work out of choosing exactly the right fit for every model and model year Tesla. Ohm designs and manufactures Model 3 wheels, Model S wheels, Model X wheels, and Model Y wheels. They are available in 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 inch diameters. Extensive research has been done by expert Ohm engineers to enable maximum wheel width and diameters while clearing the large brake calipers on Tesla vehicles. Each expert recommended size not only fills fenders wells to maximize vehicle aesthetics, it also optimizes performance by widening the stance of the vehicle for improved traction and stability.

An online application guide on the Ohm website enables Tesla owners to see all the various wheel sizes, finishes and specifications, across the line including Ohm Proton and Ohm Lightning. An online configurator goes further, providing owners with a visual platform to explore how each of the Ohm Wheels will look on their specific model, model year and even color car.

Ohm Ohm Tesla wheels wheels are available at all better automotive tire and wheel dealers. A dealer locator is available at 1 800 479-9723 or on the Ohm website. Ohm dealers are located throughout North America and worldwide, including Discount Tire Direct at discounttiredirect.com
