    Once I pick up my Model S, hopefully this week, I'll be installing an aftermarket set of 20 inch wheels on it. That will leave me with a stock set (19" silver slipstream) with about 15 miles on them (distance from delivery center to home). They'll include the stock tires and TPMS. A new set from Tesla is $2500 (which comes out to $625 per wheel).

    I'm thinking about keeping 1 wheel as a spare, and selling the remaining 3 individually as spares. The other option is to sell all 4 as a set.

    I'm looking for opinions or recommendations on which way to go, and price. Or the experience of anyone that has done this.

    Thanks

    Check out the parts for sale portion of forums for idea on price ...will be harder to sell individually ..most folks would want as set ...I know a lot of east coast guys like the 19s for winter ...also these are a pain to ship :(

    I would keep them if you have the space to store them.

    @Plan B , what would be a reason to keep all 4? I want 1 as a spare to throw in the back for long trips. But I live in central TX and don't have a need for a winter set. Though I have space to store them and I'm not desperate for the cash, I don't know why I would ever want more than 1 spare. But I'm open to an excuse for not having to go through the hassle of selling.

    From ebay, it looks like a set of 4 sells for somewhere between $800 and $1500.

    Mainly because you will not get that much for them when you sell them and you just never know if you will need them or not. I would keep them. You would be lucky to get $800 for them.
