Tesla Cybertruck’s new wheel design and tire size revealed in the latest sightings from Austin, Texas



One of the release candidate Tesla Cybertrucks was spotted in Austin, Texas yesterday. This time though, it was not loaded on an open trailer, rather, an enclosed one, like a container.

This Cybertruck unit was leaving a popular automotive location in Austin, Texas known as Petrol Lounge (perhaps this was the first vehicle without petrol there). Petrol Lounge is actually a climate-controlled vehicle storage warehouse.

The most interesting information revealed out of this Cybertruck sighting in Austin is its new wheel design and tire size.

For the past few years, Cybertuck prototypes were always spotted with the same original 12-spoke wheel design that Tesla hid under its patented wheel covers.

The same wheels are installed on all the alpha prototypes that are mostly seen during testing around Tesla’s Global Engineering HQ in Palo Alto, California. Even the Cybertruck wrapped in a Ford F-150 skin had the same wheels.

In the latest sighting of the Cybertruck in Austin, the one that Tesla tried to hide in an enclosed trailer, has the new wheels installed. They do look like the basic wheel design that is most probably going to come ‘included’ from the factory. Tesla might offer the original prototype wheel design as a premium option but it will be clear once the Cybertruck configurator goes live.

@triggertx who actually took the photos of the Cybertruck on the trailer told me on Instagram that these new wheels have the original Cybertruck wheel covers as well. If you look closely look at the following picture of the front wheel, one of the covers is lying on the floor of the trailer (bottom right).

While the Cybertruck was loaded on this trailer and moving to an undisclosed destination, @triggertx/Instagram was able to get a very close picture of the wheel size specification.

This is the same tire and wheel size that we reported last month on the Ford F-150 Cybertruck prototype. The tire size on the release candidate Cybertruck reads 285/65/R20.

To know how big the Cybertruck tire is, curiosity took me to tireconverter.com. So, a 285/65/R20 wheel and tire combined are equal to 34.6 inches high and 11.2 inches wide. This means a Cybertruck tire is almost 35 inches in height.

The tire on this release candidate and the alpha prototype Cybertruck also look the same which is Goodyear Territory tires with the same size and specifications.

Tesla is pursuing Cybertruck production at a steady pace as we reported yesterday after looking at an inside video of Giga Texas. Reservation holders can therefore expect their Cybertruck deliveries this year as Elon Musk promised at the 2023 Tesla Shareholder Meeting in May.
