    Arachnids have eight legs, the wheels have ten... not very biological!

    ...unless the extra two 'legs' are supposed to be pedipalps?

    Tesla dropped them off at my house today.... I like them alot, significant weight savings over OEM 21" turbines, they are lighter than the 19"s as well...

    Is anyone else besides me still waiting on these from the referral program? Spring is here, and I want to take my winter tires off soon, and am waiting for the call that they are in. Hope it comes soon!

    My current theory is that the silver ones are out and the painted ones are being painted still. Anybody taken delivery of a non silver set?

    Just received notification from the Fremont Service Center that my Arachnid wheels arrived.
    Major disappointment when they confirmed the Silver finish instead of the Grey that I ordered.
    I am losing faith in the award fulfillment process with Tesla ... :(

    Just picked up my S yesterday. Here are some photos with the black Arachnids installed. The consensus appears to be that these wheels are very mean. ;)

    Out of curiosity... when the SC installs your wheels does your dash/screen car get updated to show that you are rocking these new wheels?
