    20180930_112449.jpg Just bought a 2013 S85 for my wife and drove it back to CO from MO and am looking to swap out the set of 21" dark grey turbines preferably for a set of 19" slipstream. These 21" have the old tpms that do not show individual tire pressure. All 4 are in great shape with only a small rock chip/rash spot on one shown in pic. Just had them checked today, two are at 3/32, other two are at 7/32 having been more recently replaced.

    21" just are not practical for my family, alternatively if there is a set of 19" for sale within 200mi of colorado springs and for no more than $1000 for the set (rims and tires) I would be willing to drive to pick them up. For trading I would be willing to meet at a discount tire shop to have them swap them.

    I will post more pics tomorrow.

    ok, got a better look and more pics, 2 of the rims have small chips in the paint, but pretty minor. Photos for all 4 here, sorry for the lense flare, sun is strong this morning. I will take more pics if requested.

    2 new rear tires are on now, still looking to trade these 21's for 19's or buy a set of 19's. I can order a set of 4 new slipstream rims and mxm4 tires through my discount tire shop for $1900 with warranty but would rather spend half that for a used set if decent. I can hold out for a year if necessary before I just buy new.

    Are those summer tires? I assume.... I have a set of 19” that have nearly new Michelins on them. The only problem is I have gen2 sensors. Any interest in a trade? Im in Cincinnati. I have an extra set of rims, so I could send you these, put them on and send me yours once you are ready to go.....

    I had to look them up, they are Michelin Pilot Super Sport so yes summer tires.

    I am open to trade straight across for a set of 19" slipstream rims with decent tires mounted, I could probably have discount tire swap out the tpms sensors between the two sets without much hassle when changing over. We would just need to work out what the extra shipping cost will be. I will also include the discount tire paperwork for the tire warranty's so if you get them put on at one of their stores you can keep the warranty with them, 35k mile tred warranty and new tire replacement if one should get blown or damaged by road debris.

    I only have the 19" stock OEM rims in silver. I know you wanted slipstreams. let me know if you would like to trade my wheels + cash for yours. I'll even pay for all the shipping.

    Tempting but would then have to buy a whole new set of tires for the 19"rims. Was looking more to trade rims with tires mounted, spent $500 already for 2 new tires on the rears so will just wait till next summer to find an adequate trade and my wife will continue driving as is.

    Looking to not spend more than $1k on 4 rims with good tires, prefer mxm4 tires.

    If no good trades then will just buy 4 new slipstream rims and tires from my discount tire for $1900 next summer with full replacement and tred warranty. Then put the 21's with tires up for sale.

    Sorry if I was confusing. These rims and tires are already on my vehicle. I would have to put my vehicle on jack stands until I receive your wheels. I am offering additional cash for the exchange.

    trade fell through with @TheCharlesChen as he backed out and am now engaged with @Freshfish328 to buy his set, if this works out then I will have my set of 21's and tires for sale after this

    Thanks @Freshfish328 for the easy transaction with the 19' slipstreams.

    For everyone else, the 21'' Dark grey powder coated turbines with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires are still for sale.

    There is minor curb rash now on 3 of the 4 rims from the short time my wife was driving on them (/sigh) but should be easy to have a wheel guy fix if desired.

    I had discount tire check the tred depth and the new pair was still at 9/32 and the front pair was 8/32

    These 21's have normal valve stems installed now and will also be posted to craigslist as soon as I have time incase a non-tesla can use them. I am selling for $1,300 local to Denver/Colorado Springs/Pueblo areas and can drop them off. Shipping costs apply if sold elsewhere.
