    Winter tire choice

    I have the Sottoero 3 on my MY and am happy with them.

    Lets talk mud flaps, spot welded nuts and loose bolts (also why every Model Y owner needs mud flaps)

    The paint damage above is my MY. I got some satin black PPF installed along the rockers and flared up at the rear door. This is in addition to the Tesla mud lflaps on the front and I think the Basenor ones on the rear. I am thinking of adding the Tesla PPF clear films to even protect the satin...

    Exterior Mods Showcase.

    Some selective PPF application to protect the lower doors and the fender flair, after the paint was blasted thruogh to the white primer below. I think I will also add the Tesla clear PPF rear flair protection to help the satin black PPF survive longer. Lots of time in snow country (~1500mi)...

    Winter tires for 19" wheels

    I ran the SottoZero3's from Tsportline with their 19" wheels on Mt Hood and was very happy with them. 79 days of skiing and living most of the winter in Govy and skiing at Meadows. MY is an awesome care in the snow, especially with good studless snow tires. Make sure you have good mud flaps and...

    Model Y Winter Tires

    I used the SottoZero3's last winter and will again this winter with no noise issues. Better dry road traction with the OEM Conti's, much better snow/ice traction with the SottoZeros and about even in the wet.

    Tesla Model Y Rear Door Paint Damage

    I got some satin black PPF swooshes installed last week at Alset in PDX ( that is my MY above in this post) This covers the damage mostly (there are still scratches in the clear coat above these swooshes) and I am looking at adding the Tesla PPF arches on top of this to protect my PPF and see...

    Rear Impact PPF AND Rockers?

    My rear door corners took a sever beating on my MY last winter in my travels in snow country. This is the errosion experienced after less than 1k miles in snow with gravel on the paved roads near Mt Hood last winter. I got the aftermarket mudflaps as soon as they were available and the Tesla...

    Which ICE vehicle is most comparable to a Tesla Model Y?

    I came from a 2008 Acura RDX that is comparable in size and handling but the MY (June, 2020) has way more acceleration. I used to think 240 HP was good but the Y is great. It also has absolutely zero throttle lag. The RDX does try to keep the turbo spooled up at lower revs but still have...

    Model Y - Snow Tires Recommendations

    I ran the SottoZero3's last winter and were very happy with them both snow and wet/cold. Mt Hood, Oregon, 76 days on snow.

    Tesla OEM vs. RallyArmor mud flaps

    This is the level of rear door damage I received before I was able to get the Amazon Mud Flaps and I replaced the front ones with the Tesla ones as soon as I could get them (~12k miles of which ~3k miles in snow). Also note that the front edge of the rear door was seriously eroded because it...

    For those who purchased winter tires last year, give us your feedback.

    I got the Sottozero 3's and drove them all winter on Mt Hood in Oregon which has feet of snow most of the winter. We had 1 - 5 feet at our Cabin in government caps and Mt Hood Meadows had 3 feet to 15 feet at the parking lot. Most f the winter the parking lot was snow and ice covered and I must...

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    Pacific NW same problem. No salt but we gravel/pumice (see the porous pink rock in the tread) a lot and it sand blasts Tesla's. My 12YO Acura has only <5% this level of damage and has seen similar conditions. Also same story at the SC. Looking into getting some trim stripes that cover from the...

    Tesla Model Y Rear Door Paint Damage

    Similar in Red also after less than one year. I confronted my SC (Portland, OR) and they said normal wear and tear. The white is the primer and the red has a lot of clear coat damage that extends way beyond what the PPF kit covers (look at all of the frosty steaks that extend to the front doors...

    MYP in Wisconsin winters/ I need help with tire/wheels

    I went with the T Sportline package with the Sottozero3's. Spent all winter on Mt Hood with 90% snow conditions and they worked very well. The picture is late November, later in the season we had over 10' at the parking lot and about 6' in Government Camp where we were staying. No Chill Mode...
