Ohm Wheels for the Tesla Model Y
The Ohm in-house design team offers a first look at the upcoming Model Y with aftermarket wheels installed.
February 4, 2020
Last week, Tesla Motors officially announced that production of the Model Y has started in January 2020, ahead of the originally estimated schedule. This announcement also included an update to the Model Y online configurator. The Model Y production timeline now shows that "first deliveries begin in March 2020". The announcement has been extremely exciting for all of us at Ohm Wheels. As a result, our in-house design team has been hard at work with wheel development on the Model Y.
The Ohm design team has used this opportunity to render our existing Ohm Proton Tesla wheels and Ohm Lightning Tesla wheels onto the Model Y for a first glance at how the Tesla SUV will look with aftermarket wheels installed. For 2020, we plan to offer black Model Y wheels, gunmetal Model Y wheels, and silver Model Y wheels in a wide array of wheel sizes. Whether you are looking for an OE replacement to enhance performance and range or if you are looking for a larger diameter wheel to enhance the Model Y styling, Ohm has you covered. Currently, we plan to offer 19 inch Model Y wheels, 20 inch Model Y wheels, 21 inch Model Y wheels, and 22 inch Model Y wheels to fit.
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 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.
