    When you had the Arachnids installed did they update the image on the screen to show the new wheels?

    Thanks.

    No, I did request they change it to the arachnids but the tech said he could only could change it to the turbines currently.

    Tagging onto the thread with an extra question for anyone with Arachnids, what tire's did your Arachnids come with? Most seem to come with Pilot Super Sport (PSS) but mine came with Pilot Sport 2 (PS2)

    They updated my graphic; the wheel came with Pilot Sport, can't tell that they are Super Sports. Going to examine closely tomorrow. My understanding is they are supposed to be the newest PSS, which include the foam lining to decrease noise, vibration, and harshness.

    Rather than writing in terms of name, maybe we should be discussing DOT codes?

    I asked the service center "when you install the Arachnids, will you update the graphic?" They answered yes and did.

    Can you post a picture of the modified graphic? I was explicitly told it was not available and if you have photo proof it would help everyone!!

    How can you tell....
    Most obvious is the name on the side of the tire, The tire will say either pilot sport or pilot super sport on the side wall depending on which tire it is. Look at the images below note the pilot sport 2 says pilot sport on the side wall and the pilot super sport says pilot super sport on the side wall!

    It's less obvious but, also printed on the sidewall is the treadware rating. It is much lower on a pilot sport 220 I believe vs the pilot super sport which has 300 treadware rating.

    And last but not least the pilot super sport would have a TO after the name signifying that the tire was made for Tesla

    Confirming the obvious.

    In bright light, I can see a tiny 2 next to the words Pikot Sport. So, for whatever reason, they gave me PS-2s which are IIRC slightly inferior, slightly cheaper, fewer miles for inferior performance and no foam.

    For unlucky folks like me who had cancellations and didn't already get the arachnids, does anyone know if in the current program the rims come with tires? It doesn't specifically say in the current referral program notes.

    Another question ... can you fit all 4 of your old rims and tires in your MS for transport home?

    As for your first question. Yes, most people have gotten the new staggered Pilot Super Sports that were specially made for Tesla with Michelin's Acoustic Tech foam which reduces road noise by 10db. Prior to this Michelin did not make the PSS in the 265/35 21 size.

    I was able to fit my tires in my car, the rims needed a second trip, though I layed them down and didn't try doing standing them up on their sides.

    Could you post a screenshot? Im wondering if my rims are being shown as grey vs black that they actually are.

    Also for everyones information, right now the in car display still doesn't show the proper wheels, I was told another update will be out in 2 weeks or so that will update the in car avatars.
