The Ultimate 18" Wheel for Tesla Model Y Efficiency and Comfort
If efficiency and economy are your goal, this is the setup for you. Downsizing the wheel and tire package here yields a reduction in both mass and aero resistance. The 18x8.5" TS5 wheel is one inch smaller diameter and one inch smaller width, versus the factory 19x9.5" Tesla wheel. The weight savings on the wheel alone is 7.6 lbs each and a total of 30.4 lbs weight reduction per vehicle. The tire frontal area (aero resistance) also drops from 280 square inches on the factory 19" Tesla tire to just 265 square inches per 18" tire for a reduction of 15 square inches per tire and 60 square inches of frontal area savings per vehicle - this alone is about the same difference as saving from holding an iPad out the window against the airflow while driving!
Ride comfort quality is also improved with 18" tires, due to the added sidewall (0.300") cushion. The 18" tire package creates the most cushion to safeguard against pot-hole damage. The 4.8" tall sidewall also reduces the likelihood of 'curbing' your wheels, as commonly occurs on lower profile / larger diameter setups.

In other words, your warranty will still be valid when your windshield wiper malfunctions, even if you've upgraded to our Wheel & Tire Package.
