BBS x Unplugged Performance Flugplatz Wheels Revealed – Available for Model 3 and Model Y applications

Today, we’re proud to continue our longstanding partnership with BBS GmbH on our latest wheel the UP x BBS Flugplatz (FP).  In 2020, we began Unplugged Performance Nürburgring operations and local manufacturing. In naming this wheel we pay homage to the iconic Flugplatz crest at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The Flugplatz wheel is produced for UP by BBS Germany and is built for extreme strength to endure daily driven abuse and even going airborne at speed over Nürburgring’s Flugplatz crest.  This section of the Nürburgring presents perhaps the most demanding section of any racetrack on earth for the structural integrity of a wheel as cars routinely launch off the crest before slamming back down onto the road surface.

This wheel is engineered and produced in Germany explicitly to take this punishment from heavy Tesla vehicles running on thin 20″ tires.

Midnight Blue Metallic Tesla Model 3 - BBS x Unplugged Performance Flugplatz Wheels

World-Class Quality
BBS’s reputation is second to none. From F1 to equipping the world’s fastest supercars, BBS is a world leader in quality and performance. BBS also happens to be the pioneer of flow-forming technology which they’ve been using and perfecting since their Ferrari F430 challenge wheels popularized the technology years ago.
The Flugplatz wheel utilizes BBS flow-forming technology to make an extremely strong and weight-optimized wheel that is built for a lifetime of daily driven abuse. These wheels are TÜV SÜD approved and tested beyond 2,000,000 load cycles and with a vehicle weight rating exceeding 6000lbs making them conservatively strong enough for even the largest SUVs. In destructive testing, a single wheel has exceeded 3800lbs of load.

Made Just For Tesla
When we approached BBS for a perfect daily driven wheel we developed this solution which is made exclusively for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. Unlike most aftermarket wheels, these are sized perfectly for the application, accept factory TPMS sensors, Tesla factory lug nuts, and have Tesla correct center bore dimensions.

A True Partnership
Every set of wheels comes co-branded by BBS Germany and Unplugged Performance on the wheel and on the special UP x BBS center caps to represent this special continued collaboration.

Sized Right
From our experience of working with thousands of Model 3 and Model Y owners, we’ve selected the best sizing for a daily driven car. The Flugplatz sizing of 20×9+32 allows all factory 20” Tesla tires to be swapped over and fitted for both Model 3 and Model Y. The correct tire sizing range is 235 to 275 wide which also allows track enthusiasts to go up to 275 wide front and rear if desired. The Flugplatz is also designed to clear the UP BFB 6 piston big brake kits with 15.5” rotors.

What our customers say
The pictures on the website does not do justice. the wheels look extremely beautiful. Kirk was extremely helpful, and coordination was amazing. My wheels are gloss black, not able to add a picture to the review if not would do it. I went with slightly bigger wheels 20x10.5 front and 20X11 back. ...
I have a Tesla Model 3 LR but the rep at UP accidentally ordered the MY listing instead which is the same since both M3 and MY share most parts including struts. Purchased as the roads in DC just aren't very pleasant and combined with Tesla's stock struts, it's pretty horrendous. Delivery took...
Tight on turns and soft on bumps--the mild springs seemed like the best option for folks who want to keep the vehicle as close to stock as possible while simultaneously improving the vehicle ride quality.
These wheels are insanely light and strong! And, they look the bomb! If I didn’t look while picking them up, I would have thought they are carbon fiber! The same spec as was originally used on the Bionic Phoenix Model 3 race car! I put in my fastest time at Buttonwillow on these wheels...
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add this Sway Bar kit along with the Dual Rate Linear Springs and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
These are absolutely THE BEST brakes (https://www.instagram.com/p/CveWNmjvKwT/) They work flawlessly lap after lap with it's nonstop stopping power, they will last forever. Incredible value for money and Highly recommend to anyone considering using their Tesla for both track and street.
These springs were the first real mod I’d ever done to my Tesla and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. They really complete the look on my model 3. And I was surprised to find you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort by adding them. The only problem is that now that I’ve...
I recently purchased the Carbon Fiber long tail decklid spoiler for my Model X, the quality is outstanding, the finish and attention to detail of the spoiler is amazing. Looking forward to installing it on my X when it's being wrapped.
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) The 6-point Harness kit goes hand in hand with the design of the racing seat. It looks absolutely well made and high quality making it a must have...
Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
Significantly improved feel from this suspension kit. Don't forget yo get camber adjustments and springs that make this suspension upgrade feel like a whole new car!

This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) It looks absolutely well manufactured, high quality and lightweight making it a must have accessory on any Tesla going to the track! Looks stunning and well designed!!
This is by far the best front fascia out there and its makes the Model 3 look so much better! It gives it a much sportier look and I get comments on it all the time. One of the simplest upgrades that makes a huge difference as far as the look of the car goes. Couldn't be happier with how it looks....
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
The Air suspension upgrade kit works well on my refreshed Raven Model X with the upgraded Air Suspension kit. The suspension setting on Low not only improves the look but also benefits from higher efficiency with the advantage of location based auto raise function....
I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8c-F2PEYP) The sway bars improve the ride quality, reduced body roll making the car more rigid and stable. Installation and setup was easy, being adjustable is an added bonus....
I had my Coilovers installed by NV Auto in Hamilton Canada. They did a good job and I now have a great ride. After about a month of driving I went one step further and put new 18” rims and tires on. This really improved the ride and is is a joy to drive my Tesla again. Thanks unplugged...
