Looks great. Can't be sure if it's Photoshopped or not. Almost looks like the suspension has been lowered a bit.
Considering they are charging $1500 for these, that is a lot smarter investment than the Tesla sport wheels (Plus you have a second set of rims for a spare or snow tires)

Of course that also means having to find a place to keep 4 18” rims with tires.

Depending on local weather conditions, it's more practical to have a snow/winter set of wheels and a summer set.
Yes, I was going to clarify that I am in South Florida so absolutely no need for a second set of rims/tires for winter purposes :)

The $1500 only includes the bare rims though. The wheel and tire package is $2800.

Also if you prefer silver wheels these won’t help. For some reason these TST 19s are only being offered in gray and flat or gloss black. I am really surprised there’s no standard silver at all.

I love the look and kudos to TSportline. However, powder coating the stock sport wheels might be a cheaper option (since tires are included in the $1500) and personally I don't see a huge difference in the look of the wheel itself. Nice job regardless TSportline.

Remember, you don't get the Aeros (and the set of TPMS sensors) for your winter tires when you do that. So probably not cheaper, unless you're planning to buy steelies and inexpensive winter tires.

Nicer wheels can be had for that price.
But to each his own.

this is for those wanting the look of wheels the S/X has. most going with aftermarket wheels are not doing it for the cost savings.

Nicer in what way?
Looks? That would be subjective.
But do you mean quality? If so, can you explain?
Looks will always be subjective. But to not compare this wheel to the thousands out there, well that's just being short sighted. As far as quality,a quick search on the wheel maker should suffice.

here's a few more pix of the t-sportline wheels installed . . .
What a difference an interesting photo angle makes! To me, the angle in earlier pics combined with the dark car/wheel combo make the car look, dare I say, a little frumpy. I thought I had fallen asleep and woken up on the Oldsmobile forum.

Understood...I'm in the same boat as @SoFlaModel3 I have no need for a winter set or the desire to store an extra set of wheels and tires in my garage. For those that want that winter set, the TSportline is definitely an option. In my case, I like the TSportline look, which I feel I can achieve on the stock sport wheels by powder coating. Either way, the car looks great in these photos.

Those Unplugged Performance rims look difficult to clean and $6500 is a good chunk of change. The Tsportline in metallic gray on red, blue, or silver M3 will be my choice, unless I stick with the 19" silver Tesla wheels. I'm getting the 18" aero wheels (taking off hubcaps) for my winter tires.
