New shiny wheels ! 19" (what file image format does this forum support, couldn't upload iPhone picture) but my question is should I use 235 all round or 235 front , 265 rear (as some tyre sites suggest)

1 month wait for the 265's, driving to Italy (hopefully) on the 25th , would quite like to have the new wheels on

Thanks

Which 19" wheels are they? I think the safe answer is to go 235 front and rear unless the wheels you bought for the rears are wider than the standard Tesla ones.

You need a minimum width of 9J to fit 265 which will make the fronts look undertyred and prone to kerbing unless they are staggered front to rear. Staggered rims are only arguably necessary for RWD.

I think I'll go sensible and stock with 235's all round, might be able to get away with a 245 at the back but probably not worth the risk

10mm will make no difference to the handling and just prevent you swapping front to rear.

That's quite an increase over the standard wheels, particularly once you add the tyres.

There's a lot of metal there, for sure
