    (hat tip to r6bruin for most of this text)

    • Prefer a buyer in the NYC area although I'm open to shipping for the right offer.
    • Highest offer gets 'em. :)
    • Wheels are 8.6 lbs lighter in front and 9.5 lbs in rear wheel for a total reduction of 36.2 lbs of unsprung weight compare to the 21" Turbine wheels (which are $6,000 in the Tesla Store).
    • Arachnid wheels had been available for a short period of time in the Tesla Store for a price of $7,600.
    • Even though they had been available for a short period of time, they are not available for sale right now
    • Arachnid wheels are the wheels on the Tesla that set the record 0-60 time.

    If I didn't have these Carbon Fiber Wheels ordered already, i would bid...if they ever get shipped they are 11 lbs. each and will drop over 100 lbs of rotational mass from the car. (compared to the stock 21's)

    what is the current asking price? I am in the DMV and could arrange to pick them up from you. Also assuming that the color you chose is as pictured...

    I'm deciding on the highest bidder today, so just to bump this.... is there anyone in the NYC area (preferably) looking to buy a set of Silver Arachnid wheels and tires? PM me with your highest offer! :)

    Final bump (because I'm really not wanting to ship the wheels and most offers are not local) :(

    Is there anyone in the NYC area (preferably) looking to buy a set of 21" Silver forged Arachnid wheels and tires? All details on the first post of this thread. PM me with your highest offer!

    Bumping because my primary deal fell through and all other offers are too low I feel. Anyone else interested? :)
