    Good point.

    Makes sense to do that. It is just wheels after all. Maybe the CF trim and spoiler will be the only differentiating cosmetic factors.

    Now if only they would allow you to get the CF trim at an extra cost. I might splurge and pay an extra $500 for it over the other 4 trim options, and I imagine others would consider the same. Just more ways for Tesla to make money, which ain't a bad thing. Just provide the Performance badging to differentiate between models (not that anyone driving the Performance model will need any reminder above simply stepping on the gas!).

    Just order gloss black and then have it wrapped in carbon fibre film. Done well, you probably would never know the difference!

    <sarcasm>

    OMGWTFBBQ!!11!!eleventy-one!!!1!!

    I can't believe Tesla has just diluted the value of my Performance car by offering the gray wheels for sale. When I configured my car, it said clearly on the web site that only performance cars were available with the gray wheels!! Tesla changed the contract on me after I signed, and it's just another reason that it's a {bait-and-switch|overpromise-and-underdeliver}. I can't believe this, they've gone too far this time, and there isn't anything I can do because they took my $10,000!

    </sarcasm>

    I'm happy to see the options opening up... with this and things like soflauthor's CCI, I'm hoping the seed is planted for a healthy ecosystem for Model S.

    Wow they must have received a lot of requests for grey wheels. I'm ok with differentiation personally, but glad people can get them too. At least I have my spoiler that looks like anyone could have bought and stuck on haha.

    5,200 for wheels and tires does make me think performance is a good deal though. Might as well upgrade all the way!

    It's really the difference over the base wheels and tires. So 5200 - 2800 (I believe) or 2400 for the wheel plus tire upgrade.
