    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    I have heard nothing official from Tesla so take everything in this discussion with a grain of salt. Numbers would suggest that yes the wheels “should” be safe.

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    Load rating stamped on the inner aspect of each wheel: 650kg front and 750kg rear. Would be underspec if you used it to tow but just good enough using it as a car.

    Definitely looking into spacers.

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    The main goal is to have something less boring then the 20” air streams but just as efficient as far as energy. Don’t like the idea of losing 10% or more in range!! Will monitor the energy usage with these wheels. If it doesn’t work, will wear the tires out and move on to something new.

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    Yeah. GAWR is significantly higher in the X for towing. If you use those numbers to see if the wheel will work, then the wheels will be under rated. But I don’t think it’s a good measure to see if a wheel would work for a certain car. Each front wheel is rated at 650kg and each rear is rated at...

    21" Arachnid Rims on Model X - Load Ratings

    Wondering if GAWR is more important when you’re trying to tow. Numbers seem to be safe if you’re simply using it as a car.

    Explanation for the windshield double vision?!?!

    Not yet but lemme go look this weekend. My brother claims that it happens in his X and he's just as tall (or as short) as me so I'll see if I can't see it. We have identical configurations except for rims and seat colors. VINs very close. (If that matters)

    Explanation for the windshield double vision?!?!

    Has there been a good explanation for some of those who experience double vision in the X's windshield?!?! I luckily do not have this problem in mine. But I have noticed it somewhere else. The LED screen on my rear view mirror dash cam! I have an after market dash cam that displays the video...

    Thanks to JHPhotographyonline.com for the cool video. Pretty neat for those who just wanna take a look around the inside of the X

    2nd and 3rd row seating for car seats and real people

    Agree with @Mark. I've sat in the 3rd row multiple times and enough room when you move the seats forward. I'm also only 5'7". The seats can be moved forward after they have "locked" into their position. The car will let you know if the seat is not locked via alerts on the main screen. I have...

    My Story: 3 kids, a Model S, cancelling my Model X, and a...Volvo?

    Funny. I personally saw the XC90 at the auto show lately and was extremely disappointed in the 3rd row seats. I sat in the rear seats and thought the X was significantly roomier. It may appear claustrophobic since there are less Windows for light and less head and shoulder room, but the actual...
