If you have a Performance Model you will need to be careful when selecting wheels. The Performance Model comes with a slightly different hub center that is stepped.
The hub is only stepped on the full Performance trim, with the upgraded brakes.
Solutions to make a wheel fit:
- Have the wheel custom machined to fit the extra hub lip
- Use a wheel spacer that is the size of the 64.1mm hub that increases it to a larger sized wheel hub (like a 71.6mm hub)
- Upgrade your Model 3 brake rotors. Often, an aftermarket brake rotor will be thicker and allow your wheel to center directly on the 64.1mm hub (pictured here)
