    As the arachnid wheels are proving to be very rare, I thought I'd start a thread where people can post info about sightings and photos of same. Without a photo a sighting doesn't count for very much.

    The only photos I've seen do far are made-up ones on Google or the like. This is for the real thing: arachnid wheels on a Tesla Model S or X that's actually on the road, in real-life settings.

    question I haven't seen a direct answer for are the Arachnids staggered or square fitment?

    I'm wondering the same thing. And aren't they all 21s? There are Pirelli tires that are the "correct" size (according to Tire Rack) for 21" setups on a Model X. I wonder if, since the OE wheels are staggered on the X, if they are making Arachnids for the X that are unique/different from the S? Need more input :p
