    Hello All,

    Will be picking up these 21" Dark Gray Arachnid Wheels and Tires this Friday. I don't have pictures yet but pulled one from online. It's important to note that I do NOT have a Staggered set up. EDIT : I will confirm when I get them if they are or not

    To answer in advance, I would prefer local pick-up as I do not know how to ship these things. I'd be willing to work with you for pick up.

    Price: $5,000

    My car doesn't have a staggered setup I don't have a P85+ or P85D like you :) aka I'm not cool.

    I'll know for sure on Friday.

    Unless they sent you 4 front wheels, which won't happen, all arachnid sets ARE staggered.

    Yeah, what Pat said.. the staggered setup has nothing to do with your car... it's just the wheels and tires.

    But come on, you're still cool! You own a Tesla!

    Can they be used for Model X, of course will replace them with proper tires?

    Many people have asked Tesla, and the repeated answer is no, the Arachnids won't work on Model X.

    Really? I feel like they would it's just the offsets that are different 35 vs the 40. In Norway they use the Model S wheels on the X.

    A lot of people say it's due to the load rating. The Model S comes in at about 5200lbs for a P100D where as the X starts at about 5100lbs.

    I would also speculate that it's due to the tire sizes, there's no good translation in a 21" size for a Model X. A lot of close enough, but no direct match. This may or may not affect the computer/programming when it's reading wheel speeds and adjusting power distribution, traction control, and potentially autopilot controls.

    I can see that being an issue, but like I said. I've seen the X on the S 19" wheels. I'm fairly certain the algorithm will adjust on the range as the real energy consumption read out is based on actual driving and SoC. Either way... FORM OVER FUNCTION
