About a month ago I ordered my MS LR, white with the 19” tempest wheels. I had plans to upgrade the wheels on the after market but the prices aren’t as expected and I’m now considering the 21” arachnids. Does anyone know if I made the change in my configuration would it put my back to the end of the assembly line ?

For fortune knowledge- Tesla said “We can modify your existing order if you would like to update the wheels. This change will not totally reset your delivery timeline, but it will push it back. Additionally, the Model S has gone up in price since you placed your order so making any changes would subject you to the new pricing. In your case your vehicle price would increase by $9,500 ($5,000 Model S price increase + $4,500 Arachnid wheels).”

$9,500 is a bit much to simply upgrade wheels. I tried to modify my order as well and was also told I'd have to pay the updated pricing.

I'd love to see that. won't change my order or mind, as I want the most "fuel economy" that I can get (most range) but if I lose a cover, I'd like to see what it looks like if I run cover-less.

I think they look cool enough, but the outline sketch only shows so much. Hopefully they're the same dark gray color as the caps are (which, btw, are $30 a piece if you need to replace one).
