By now I think a lot of us have seen, and gasped at, the $4000 winter tire package available as an accessory. This comes with the 20" F7 wheels. I was looking and winter tires to fit this wheel run around $250-350. I wonder if a 18" or 19" wheel will fit around the brakes. Once we know the lug pattern and offset the secondary market shopping can begin for suitable winter wheels and tires.

I believe in winter tires, but I don't think I'll be ready to depart with $4000 for the Fisker option. I'll go with the 20" wheels on the Ultra so I wouldn't be opposed to using that rim for 1 winter season if a replacement wasn't available.

I am in the same boat. I want to buy non OEM 18’’ for improved winter range and comfort. Strange not to see any options for these sizes, but offcourse they do not look so nice as 20’’. On my ‘One’ config I’ve selected F5’s 22’’ for summer.

Wheels and tires are always better purchased from a third party. It's probably the highest profit option/accessory for auto makers.

I agree with you.
I've always had winter rubber on smaller than OEM wheels.
In this case, I may add winter tires to the Fisker 20". Wheels and upgrade to aftermarket forged 22" wheels with Sport rubber!

I would be surprise that 18" will fit, probably that 19" will be the minimum because the galluper. Same than you I will go with 20" for summer.

This is a good thought. I like both of the Fisker 22" options, but getting the 20" wheels with the Ultra and then a nice 21 or 22 aftermarket set with some sticky rubber could be cool.

That's what I did with my Tesla 3.
Participated in a Group Buy on the Tesla Forum and scooped a Titan 7 ten spoke Forged wheel that weighs around 20 pounds. The GB worked out to $2600 US four years ago

Get some 22" after markets for the summers.. for may be $1K more ($5K-total) in price, you can get some Vossens or HREs for that price + rubbers.. all-in in Toronto... whatever comes on the car, I will likely take thos rubbers put them on my aftermarket summers then find some winter rubbers for the stock RIMs.
