    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.

    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
