I was thinking, With the cost of the Fisker 22" Alloys, would it be cheaper to buy alloys from another company and so have both the original 20" and a spare set of 22"?

If so, what info (yeah... pun intended!) would be need to get alloys as im thinking we would need to know the tyre width, depth and breadth plus the bolt hole configuration. Would we need other info like weight the alloys can take or anything else. 

Is the bolt position going to be specific to Fisker or is thre a few standard bolts you can do.

In the UK what would be the cost of those +/- the wheels that fit onto it?

@drshahali10 You can get an estimated max possible tire upgrade with the below website (which I used to upgrade my Mach E tires and wider 19" alloy wheel). Since Fisker supports 22" as a standard option, there are a lot of options available in the market.

@drshahali10 First the bolt pattern can vary alot from maker to maker. I put my money on 5 over 130mm, but so far Fisker isn't talking so it is just a guess. The other measurement is the hub diameter. Most (all?) modern cars use hub centric centering for the wheels. In times past it was the lugs that dictated the centering now they just hold the wheel on. Most after market wheels will be made with specific bolt patterns and then the hub diameter is adjusted with an adapter. Lastly is offset- the variance of the mating surface from wheel centerline. Again, we don't yet know Fiskers spec. This one is important for clearances of suspension parts on one side and the fender on the other and also can influence handling.

@silvernort   oh man.... i think it may be just Fisker making hte wheels... that way we have to buy theirs only. Its just at that cost and the huge cost forthe paint... i may just skip Ocean and go for something else. Sounds crazy but may be a MG-4 (even with its oil leak!!) for £27k is better option for  now given the likely hood of sports being delivered in the UK before Q1 2024 unlikely.

@drshahali10 when Fisker (or somebody) let's us in on the wheel specs, we'll be able to see what us available. My previous msg wasn't to dissuade you, just provide information to be able to make a good decision.  Cheers.

As @silvernort mentioned, in the end, there is a handful of different sizes for bolt patterns (the only thing we know for certain is that it will be 5 lugs).  Center bores and offsets can be adjusted with adapters (and technically, you can even get adapters to change bolt patterns).  We just need to know the dimensions to figure out which wheels will fit.  If the Ocean becomes popular, there will be plenty of companies that will make wheels for exact fit to the Ocean.

@ttrinchi : Absolutely right! Does anybody understand why Fisker makes such a secret around these simple data? Here in Europe we have plenty of 8, 8,5 and 9"x20 wheels for winter use!! And almost all of them are much more attractive than Fisker originals for prices between 180,00 - 300,00€ p.p. + 250,00 - 320,00 for best performing and power saving winter tyres...

Why do we not get a serious answer Mr. Fisker??

Does anyone know which alloy wheels between the F3 F6 and airliners would protrude the most from the tyre sidewall.

I am really liking the F6 but it looks like they stick out quite a bit. Really hard to tell and I can not find a good image or video to study. I think the F3 protrude the least but not my favourite design. 

Any clever person have any thoughts 🤔

@davea999 : There should be no difference. Even Fisker is making a holy secret about the dimensions of the wheels, the 22" wheels should be all 8,5" wide. And offset should be the same.

Has anyone better info?

It looks like the f6 kick out which would be easy to get the dreaded kerb rash.

Not all alloys are kerb friendly and not all tyres have a rim protector.

I just ran across options for other Ocean wheels, at a site called MEGAHJUL

From a tire shop in Norway? Maybe they don't ship to US.

But somewhere, someone, is making some nice options for us!

@seasalter they actually say fisker specific for these wheels? If that is the case, somehow somewhere the measurements, including offsets were released.

If those measurements are out in the public domain somewhere, it would be super helpful to find them, and thus give us even more options for ordering wheels and tire combinations for our oceans.

 

EDIT:  the site is saying 5x120 bolt pattern (not stating offset). This is one 20” option from their site on an Ocean…

I would get something like this in a 20” with my BSB and swap the tires onto it and keep the standard fugly 20” rims for my winter wheels…  

Will I get my Fisker One delivered before my VW needs its 100K service?? The race is on..
and…… will we still get the $7500 tax credit? Only HF knows…

@seaphil The Offsets are 35 or 40 mm.  The center bore are 64.1 or 72.6 mm.

I am a little suspicious they actually have the dimensions, however, if you do buy some and they don't fit; don't worry - you can sell them to a Model S or X owner as those wheel specs are the exact same specs as the Tesla's (5×120;+40 offset; 64.1 CB)
