    Just for an observation do you think the 20'inch helix wheels should be canceled b/c it doesn't seem like they are getting a lot sales I don't see any X with them they either have the standard 20'inch wheels or the 21'inch wheels!

    I've seen several people with them post on here. The big issue is they don't look like they're worth $2500 over the base wheels. If they could adjust the pricing or find a way to justify the premium (i.e. increased range over the base wheels), they'd probably sell more.

    Our vote would be to replace the helix with 20" grey turbine (prefer the grey over the black).

    I totally Agree with that they dont look like they are worth the price just like I think that the 21'inch wheels for the S is a little bit (to say this nicely) OVERPRICED!!! but those are actually worth it!;)

    Thats probably going to be the best thing for Tesla to do b/c it still doesn't fit the X look the helix wheels just dont look right to me on the X they look like the Toyota Sienna's hubcap's! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    TOTALLY AGREE!!! Don't know why they don't provide Grey option for the 20".

    I like the looks of the standard silver wheels better. If I could get any wheels for free, I would get the black 22's

    I think they should replace the standard wheel. It is ugly as hell.

    I thought I was thr only who thought this, they are a complete eyesore. Also like the original 19s on the S compared to the new ones by far
