    Looking for at least one orig 21x8.5 silver turbine wheel for my 2012 P85 in "very good" condition. Can accept minor rash if the price is right. If you have multiples in "excellent" condition (no rash) I might take up to 4. No knock offs please. NorCal location.

    Just checked and see lots of remanufactured. The crack in my wheel is so small, it would never show up in an eBay photo. How do you know you’re getting a good quality wheel? Obviously will check seller reputation, but what else?

    Any idea what a new turbine costs from Tesla?

    I have the same concerns with ebay. For chuckles I did ask Tesla what one new wheel would cost. Better sit down for this.... $1100. Lol

    OUCH!!! <picking my jaw up off the ground>.

    Did that $1100 include the tire, TPMS, installation, (and an ounce of gold)?

    I asked for the price of one "wheel", so I assume no tire etc. But to be honest when he said the price, I just started laughing and he said he completely understood my reaction. :eek:

    My quote was $1312 with labor and tax. :confused: (And I confirmed it was for the rim only.)

    Update for me... I was in a time crunch and rolled the dice on a remanufactured OEM rim on eBay. Per the seller, it just had curb rash that was corrected. Of course, there's no way to validate that, but I went with it. Discount mounted and balanced it for me. After a week on it, so far so good!
