Curva Concepts CFF50
Tesla Model 3 Wheels
When Tesla first launched their EV cars, the only choice you had was a Model S. Okay fine, technically their first production car was the Tesla Roadster. But let’s be real, they were limited to less than 2,000 units and not many people knew about their existence. It wasn’t until the Model S where Tesla started gaining major popularity. Fast forward to 2017, and Tesla dove into the affordable compact sedan space. Not surprising, considering the Model S’ weren’t cheap. With the new Model 3, owning an EV at an honest price point was now possible. Around this time is when the aftermarket car scene started to notice and really adopted Tesla’s. The issue? Tesla made cars with technology and the future in mind, not aftermarket modifications.
This is where Curva Concepts comes in. The OEM Tesla 3 wheels are a little weak. That may anger some people, but it’s true! On top of that, they weight a ton. For example, the OEM 20″ Tesla 3 wheels weigh a whopping 29 pounds each. Multiply that by four, and that’s a grand total of 116 pounds, not including tires. Not to brag, but our Flow Forged CFF50’s only weigh 25lbs each. When you’re talking EV’s and MPG, every ounce matters.

Finish: Black Machined Face
Everyday Comfort – Everyday Style
As stated above, the factory wheels on these cars aren’t sufficient enough. Whether you’re using the Model 3 as a daily driver or going for a full-blown modded build, that statement remains true. Swapping to a lightweight Flow Forged set of wheels is a great way to increase performance while dropping MPG figures.
This beautiful red Tesla Model 3 is running our Curva Concepts CFF50 with a gorgeous Black Machined Face finish. Fitment wise, we mounted 20×9 on four corners running 245/35/20 Lionhart tires. Personally, we think 20×9 suits the smaller size Tesla, like on this Model 3 and the Model Y we did not long ago. This setup gives this Tesla a more aggressive look while keeping performance at the top of the list. Then again, if you wanted to slam it to the ground, you could.
