Available in both 1-piece and 2-piece forged aluminum, the newly developed wheels were engineered specifically for the Model S. They incorporate a turbine blade design to minimize air temperature around the brake calipers.
Special attention has been given to maximizing the structural integrity to handle the unique torque forces of the Tesla Model S P85D. These Pulse wheels utilize OEM lug nuts, insuring that the proper torque applied to each wheel is maintained according to Tesla manufacturer specification.
The profile and dimensions of the wheel have also been designed to minimize weight, and maximize the road feedback to the driver, especially when cornering.
The directional turbine “blade” look of the Pulse wheels are made to complement the technical and stylish nature of Tesla electric sport luxury vehicles. Developed with ADV.1 Wheels, they feature a maximized deep concave appearance and multi- directional surface curves engineered for the first time in a forged wheel.
Details matter. The wheel cap grove will accommodate the OEM Tesla wheel cap. OEM tire sizes from the Performance and Dual Motor models (P85, P85+, P85D) are maintained, so tires can be swapped in directly. Back hub contact pad has been machined specifically for Tesla Model S, to ensure 100% contact with the wheel hub.
One of the main considerations in the development of this wheel was to increase performance, while not decreasing efficiency. In fact, in our testing the wheels improved battery mileage efficiency by 2-5% under comparative testing to stock wheels.
