Tesla 21″ Arachnid Wheel

Tesla has finally begun deliveries of its lightweight forged aluminum Arachnid Wheels (21″), that are quite a bit behind schedule (as referral program prizes).

One of the first sets to be received was by DragTimes, which without delay installed them on their Model S P100DL, and saving a couple of pounds in the process.

The fitted wheels are Michelin Pilot SuperSport tyres, weighing 53.90 lbs (rear) and 51.85 lbs (front).

And sure enough, 0-60 mph acceleration test shows a solid 2.427 seconds.

Hmmm… What is the tradeoff?

Wider PiLot Sport tires will reduce AER but reduced weight increases it.

Nice looking wheels, though – I wouldn’t
spend that sort of money if it didn’t result
in increased range and efficiency. And especially not if it hurt those factors.

They’re kinda similar to the Model 3 rims, shown on the Silver Prototype, but without the pointed tops at the hub…
