    I was pretty sure they were supposed to come with tires, at least from the first program when they were offered, does anyone have a copy of the original program where they were offered?

    thanks!

    it was absolutely clear the Brooks gets the first set ;)
    Probably even earlier than the "Tesla Race Channel" guys.
    No matter complete wheels or rims.
    They almost force him to break the record!
    Subito!
    Go for it!

    Alll this does is remind me that one of my referrals cancelled and I don't get the rims, after a long discussion with with the guy that called to tell me I wasn't getting the rims I'll take credit for the new referral system that lets you see the status of your referrals. Which only tells me I'm still sitting at "0" for the current program.... enjoy your new rims!

    Thanks I'm quite curious about the weight as well for front and rear vs other options on the market like the after market wheels you currently have on your car.

    No one has copyright on generic wheel design.

    26.5 to 28.5 pounds. The stock 21s are 35.1 pounds front and 38 pounds rear with staggered wheels. Source The Tesla Model S Wheel Guide - Tsportline

    That's a pretty good drop in weight.

    Agreed.
    That is 8.6 lbs/ front and 9.5 lbs/ rear wheel for a total reduction of 36.2 lbs of unsprung weight... a significant improvement :cool:
