Ohm Wheels now offers 18 inch Tesla wheels, 19 inch Tesla wheels, 20 inch Tesla wheels, 21 inch Tesla wheels, and 22 inch Tesla wheels that are designed and engineered specifically to fit the Tesla Model S. Our dedicated production team has carefully measured and optimized the Model S to ensure the wheels will fit in all sizes without any additional modifications required. The wide range of Tesla Model S wheel sizes also offers increased performance and range in comparison to the standard wheels.

All Ohm Tesla Wheels are manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging. 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 a regular cast Tesla wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance and vehicle range.

Ohm Wheels are precision engineered in every detail. Our in-house engineers take into account both the staggered and non-staggered fitments for Tesla Model S wheels. A staggered fitment means that the rear wheels and tires are slightly wider than the front, providing better traction and a more aggressive stance for the EV rims. Additionally, Ohm engineers factor in the related concepts of wheel offset and backspace. Wheel offset means the wheel centerline is offset away from the axle, providing a wider stance. Backspace measures how far the wheel intrudes into the wheel well towards the axle, and is important to ensure that there is no interference with suspension trailing arms or other mechanical systems.

Ohm Wheels for Teslas are designed to accept the original equipment (OE) wheel Tesla center cap and accommodate factory tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS). All Ohm Wheels are hub centric, which ensures that they fit precisely over the center flange of the brake rotor so that the wheel is concentric with the wheel bearings for a truer, better balanced wheel/tire assembly and a smoother ride.
