    Any tire sizing gurus out there?

    You'd want 275/40/20 to match the diameter of stock tires, 275/35/20 is noticeably shorter and will mess with your speedometer/odometer.

    Tesla Solar vs ....[third party competitors]

    You're absolutely correct, HOA can't disallow the installation of solar. However they did make my installer color match the conduits, subpanel to the exterior wall and roof tiles which I appreciated.

    Tesla Solar vs ....[third party competitors]

    Try using Energysage to get bids from multiple contractors... I've got ~5kw pre existing PV installed before Tesla Energy was a thing and i was told they won't touch my project if there is existing PV... So I used energysage.com to get bids and apparently most vendors were at or below Tesla's...

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    On my MYP I just went from 21" uberturbine to 20" and it was a night and day difference. The wheel and sidewall also contributes alot to the overall ride quality.

    285's or 295's for MYP at front and back/square set up

    Looks good! I just put 255/40/20 275/40/20, definitely might go with 275 or 285 square the next time around.

    Vendor Show Off Your Aftermarket Model Y Wheels

    Here's my MYP with 20" VMR V802, Continental ExtremeContact. After 100 miles, consensus is that it rides so much smoother and quieter than 21" uberturbine/pirelli combo. Seems like the crazy rough ride is from 21's and not the factory performance suspension that i'm still on. These rims/tires...

    2021 MYP Uberturbine 21" to 20" Aftermarket Wheels... 30 pound weight savings

    Zink advertises as 28 lbs. But if you add the 27 lbs of the tires, result is 55 lbs for a "fully forged" wheel/tire package vs my 54.4 lbs for flow formed (which is basically an alloy wheel with a spun forged barrel). What did your w/t package end up weighing in at?

    Fixed my squeaky seat (issue I haven't seen on the forums)

    Same exact issue on my '21MY Front Seats were squealing, and when i brought the car to SC, it stopped squealing ( i guess because someone was sitting in the front seat ). Came home, googled, and decided to fix it myself! Lifting the headrest, the seat back literally falls back. Tesla.. some...

    2021 MYP Uberturbine 21" to 20" Aftermarket Wheels... 30 pound weight savings

    After 15 months and 23000 miles on my '21 MYP I decided to downsize from factory 21" to aftermarket 20" wheels. On the Pirelli Pzero, the front tires had 50% tread, and rear tires had 25% tread, so plenty of life remaining. The handling for my MYP on 21" always surprises me, I'd get myself...

    2022 MYP Motor Failure

    Neighbor just got his '22 MYLR back after almost a month in the SC. During the drive home from *DELIVERY* the car wasn't driving normal. Asked me to hop into the car, and it felt very weird, albeit no error messages. Do not pass go, drove straight to the SC the next day for a new rear motor 🤣

    DIY paint chip repair step by step

    Not a detailer and this is my first time trying it, comments welcome but please don't roast me :) Had 5 rather noticeable rock chips on the front right fender, was able to get it 90-95% fixed going the DYI way. All of the materials I was able to source on Amazon. Over all took 2-3 days, mainly...

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Walnut Ave. (at Jeffrey Rd., LIVE 4 Dec 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    This might be one of the few shopping complexes not owned/run by the irvine company. Not 100% sure though but that doesnt change much Quite a few stalls have reduced charge rates, but in either case this SC is more so or less used by local shoppers so in general cars will be charging here...

    Tesla Model Y Rear Door Paint Damage

    Same issue here..... 20000 miles. Could be as simple as a $5 clear film thats placed on every Model Y before delivery.

    CA Waiting Room

    Do the sales reps have ability to tell you which processor the car has? Tesla estimate went from March to a phone call stating "come pick it up in 2 days" which to me is fine as long as its got the new hardware, and not a Q4 vehicle with prior stuff... Pricing was locked in before the price...
