I'd like too see these as an option. The original aero wheels which used to be an option looked awful, so I can understand them being taken off the options list. Why not clean, simple brushed Aluminum wheels instead?
I think the estimate was that they would add 10-12 miles to the range. These would also be lighter, thereby reducing the unsprung rotational mass, improving handling a bit.
The Model S is already the most aerodynamic. These wheels would further bolster that position.
