    Maximum Tires Size Model Y Performance?

    Many thanks to those who confirmed fitment of 265 and 295/40zr21 for our MYPs. Last week I purchased four Continental DWS06 Plus in those sizes. Zero rubbing after 300+ miles of mixed driving. Impressions: Smoother ride, for sure. You still feel road imperfections -- as you should in a...

    Turning lights?

    One thing I sorely miss in my Y compared to other cars (e.g. BMWs) is lights that illuminate the road to the left or right front as you turn. On a pitch black night I often feel compelled to make excessively wide turns to avoid collision with an unseen median or whatever -- which gets dicey if...

    Walkaway weirdness

    OK, so your answer to my question — "Is it me or the Y?" -- is "It's actually your butt." I find this a plausible theory with the added benefit of being funny. Thank you. I will relocate my phone to a front pocket.

    Walkaway weirdness

    With the walkaway function on and the app open, I walk to the car and SOMETIMES the doors unlock. Most of the time, though, I have to touch my iphone to the driver's door handle to enter. (Bystanders may find my behavior bizarre since I usually bump my tush, iphone in back pocket, against the...

    Maximum Tires Size Model Y Performance?

    They also match the 20mm tread width delta front to rear of the stock sizes (255 and 275).

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Good luck! The online, brick-and-mortor, custumer service, and accounting parts of Walmart don't seem to communicate all that well. Let us know about any rubbing with the 295/40s. With your thumbs up, I'm in. The main plusses of the 40-series seem to be sidewall, ride, and stance, not to...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    I've been thinking about 295/40ZR21 for the rears. They're available. But maybe rubbing under load? I hesitate to be the first! Let us know your experience with the 295/35 Michelins. About Walmart, for me so far, 3 customer service calls and 3 store visits. All four tires are still there...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Congrats! Those fronts look beefy! (I do have a lifelong tire fetish — with or without velour. It's the smell.) I loved the previous generation Michelin A/S 3 Plus "ultra-high performance" on my BMW M3. These should be even better. If all four arrive tomorrow, Discount Tire will mount & balance...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    That's just insane. In the belly of the beast! "My tires" (now in doubt) will be delivered for pickup at a local Walmart. We'll see what the tide brings in.

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Now I'm worried. I ordered the correct sizes from Walmart on Friday. Paperwork confirms that. We'll see what they shipped this Wednesday. Did they say they'd get you the right tires? I'm questioning if they even have them. Last week they listed one 265/40/21 remaining, so I didn't order. A day...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Man, those tires look perfect! The smaller fender gap looks equal all around, and they're flush with the fender lip. Other plusses I gather from this thread so far: first-class "ultra high-performance" A/S tires with long tread life, greater curb and impact protection, little to no effect on...

    MYPerf suspension vs MYLRAWD is very similar in ride quality; Did Tesla improve suspension without anyone knowing?

    In June, I ordered a blue MYLR to keep the cost down and then found myself listing all the changes I wanted: 20" Martian wheels and Mich A/S tires (pushing $4K), lowering springs + install (probably $1K), Tesla's performance upgrade ($2K), etc. Finally, my son asked, "Why not just get the P?"...

    Significant ride comfort in MYP Performance with 19" Gemini wheels/ higher profile tires

    Hey Shoemakj -- During the delivery wait, I worried whether I'd like the ride in all conditions, curb rash the Ubers, feel their absurd weight, etc. Frankly, no nightmare ride or wheel scenarios have come to pass. The Ubers make the looks of an MYP, for sure, superior in appearance to any...

    Significant ride comfort in MYP Performance with 19" Gemini wheels/ higher profile tires

    I'll make this (relatively) short. My GF had permanent back issues and refused to ride in my (BMW) M3, V8 manual. Complete idiot that I was, I sold the M3 and bought a wallowy Prius. She loved it. I hated it and with her blessing ordered an MYLR for the marginally softer ride. Then the...

    MYP 21' Michelin Pilot AS4 Sizing

    Good to know. Thanks. OTOH, I'm leaning more and more in your direction: square Martians with PS A/S 4's. That has to be the ideal all-season, all-purpose set-up right now.
