Thanks for posting a better photo! Lighting is much improved.
If you would like to see what it looks like on a midnight sliver [Here!](https://www.reddit.com/r/ModelY/comments/qt5t16/rimetrix_wheels_have_arrived/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)
Here’s what it looks like on Red! [Link](https://www.reddit.com/r/TeslaModelY/comments/qtv9eh/which_one_looks_better/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)
I think they look good, but not great.
I agree. And I can’t fathom paying $300 for hubcaps.
If you have Geminis, you paid nearly $60k for a car with hubcaps…what’s another $300 for covers you like?
No, I think the set of 4 is $300. But they’re truly just hubcaps. You could even call them “wheel covers,” but they’re just high quality hubcaps.
Gotcha. Thanks for clarifying.
The people who dislike these paid $2k more for a similar look with less efficiency and a rougher ride. Thanks for posting OP!
That's pretty funny.
Rimetrix look like hub caps they have sitting by a register in Sears...20 years ago.
There's a reason why people pay top dollar for rims when they could easily buy 'similar' knock offs.
NICE!! Are they available outside of Ohio?
Are they rubbing or are you having any issues with them?
Day 2, no known issues. Came with some padding to prevent rubbing.
I was told by rimetrix that there would be possible rubbing against the OEM rim. Please let us know if you come across that!
Earlier versions shipped without the tape. My buddy was a recipient. Edge perimeter of wheel totally scraped up. They started trying to charge $16 or something for the tape like an 'add on' in response but that didn't go over well. Now they ship with the tape.
Installing it with this buffer, they seem to work fine. They look good in person.
Awesome thanks so much!
I think they have appeal in my neighborhood because they are different. We have a lot of Teslas so these stand out. My buddy's is white, and he has the black rims. Similar to OP, just a 3.
Jus placed an order for them. Looks like they are on back order for 4 weeks.
They look faar better than gemini wheels painted black, tesla covers painted black or any third party wheels I've seen. These add some personal touch to the vehicle since all teslas on road today have inductions/uberturbines. Ordered one for mine.
Not really a fan, but appreciate you uploading a better photo.
How much tinting did you do?
I just asked the shop to match the back windows
These definitely look better than the stock covers, but why not just get the Replika 241's that everyone here raves about? They're around $1k, but if you sell your Geminis for around $500, the price would be pretty close to the same as these covers.
Do you have a link for the Replika 241s? I would appreciate it.
Someone else on here recommended ordering from this Canadian company so this is their link: https://pmctire.com/en/wheels/replika-wheels/r241/sort-by/price/sort-direction/desc.tire
All prices are Canadian, the price comes out to like $243ea USD. They ship to the US so you can order from them if you want.
Thank you, I really appreciate it!
I guess we all got ours today lol. Love mine
Wow. Those are sick!
To each their own, I don’t like them at all. I’m glad I have my induction wheels. Drove both styles of Y’s the MYLR, with Both Gemini, and Induction wheels, and then a MYP , so I could have a fair comparison of the three styles. I didn’t feel any difference between the MY with Gemini Vs Induction at all. So I bought the induction. The MYP on the other hand sucked.
Like I said to each their own
I have a MYP and love it - what do you think “sucks” about it? The harsher ride?
Blew my mind people expect performance model to drive like a regular suv. There is a reason why it is stiffer.
Tbh I hate soft ride, more body roll and super wobbly at high speed.
We got the performance only because the delivery time was much shorter than the LR and the price difference at the time was only 3K when you factored in the induction wheels and acceleration boost. I was worried the ride would be too harsh but it’s totally fine. I dunno what the guy who I originally responded to is saying “sucks” about the performance trim.
Nothing is wrong with MYP ride. The handling is supposed to be better.
They look better than stock Gemini wheels, but I definitely like my Inductions over these. I’m looking into a coilover suspension kit from Unplugged Performance to improve the stiff ride. I’m enjoying the idea of doing the road trip from Calgary, AB to California and back just to get them!
I might get a lot of downvotes. But these covers look so hideous. Black wheels are another thing but these just won’t cut.
Save a bit and get real wheels imo.
They are so much darker than the tire — I think they’d look better with some tire shine.
I never see this mentioned when comparing induction to Geminis, the wheel well gap with the 19in rims. I like how the induction really fill out the wheel well vs the tiny look from the Geminis.
With that being said, these Rimetrix are very nice and make it even tougher to drop $2k for the less efficient, curb-proned inductions.
FYI, the rolling diameter is the same for the Gemini, Induction, and Ubers.
Only one with a difference in wheel gap is the performance as it’s lowered.
It’s so much the 1in difference or the same rolling diameter. Im talking only about the appearance. And the all back wheel gives a more filled out look in the well compared to the silver Gemini caps or without the caps.
Argh those are beautiful.
Better photo. Yes. Great caps. Yes.
Holy crap they look amazing mine are coming soon
Thanks OP. Looks good. Did you notice any drop in mileage, or any sound while driving?
How do you pronounce? Rim E Trix? Rime Trix?
Yeah mine get in this week, been waiting for these to release to go on my MYLR black with xpel stealth :)
Can you still see the brake calipers? I also planned on ordering the red ones but if you can’t I see no point.
Just ordered the MYLR last night and were looking at these. Thank you for posting.
Black rims on a white car….😑
