A glimpse of the future rolled through the internet last week, as a photo of the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck’s massive wheel made its way online. This sneak peek gives us an up-close look at the pickup’s imposing design and hints at some of its much-hyped capabilities.
At first glance, the sheer size of the Cybertruck’s wheel jumps out. Previous announcements revealed the truck will have 20-inch rims with gigantic 35-inch off-road tires. If the leaked image is any indication, this beast will have some serious ground clearance and rugged chops to traverse rocky terrain and dirt roads less travelled.
Looking closer, the wheel’s clean surface lacks an air valve stem, lending credence to Tesla’s plans for an automatic tire inflation-deflation system. This advanced tech aims to optimize traction and handling across various conditions – from highway cruising to off-road adventures.
While official photos showcase some aerodynamic wheel covers, this bare-bones look has an appealing brute force aesthetic. For a vehicle named the Cybertruck, the exposed massive wheel aligns with expectations of an unapologetic, futuristic machine.
Over 1.9 million pre-orders prove that despite delays (Tesla Cybertruck Orders Surpass 1.9 Million, Generating $200 Million Pre-Order Revenue), enthusiasm for the Cybertruck remains high. As both a head-turning design piece and capable performer, this unusual pickup continues to capture imaginations. Whenever it finally rolls out, the Cybertruck’s wheels promise to carry it to new heights.
