    Tire selection for Model X

    Hi there, I was just forced to replace my set of 22s because of uneven wear and thread separation. When talking to the mechanic he said me this is a common issue on the MXs. Is anyone else having this problem? The old tires were Pirelli Scorpions PZero with 33K miles, below is the picture of how...

    4 kids: Minivan -> X...?

    I traded my 2015 Odyssey for a 7seater MX. I would not got back to the Honda, great car but the ModelX is something else. Oh, we are 7, though my 21yo is in college and only visits sporadically. I also like to take a bunch of crap on trips so I bought a trailer hitch tray that works great for us.

    Model X For Family of 6?

    I have a 5 kids ranging from 21, 15, 8 and twin 4 y/o. I can say from what you have described the 6 seater is the best option. We mostly use 6 seats as my 21y/o is in college but at the same time have relatives visiting so I had to go for the 7 seater. Given that you own another vehicle for long...

    Anyone with an S/X still waiting for V9?

    I believe at this point V9 is only available to Early Access Program members, I received an email right before the upgrade got installed. Since then I got another update and I am now in 2018.39.6.1 I have a MX delivered in June 2018

    Did you do Xpel or Suntek? Just curious.

    Must wrap areas on MX

    After reviewing pictures and stories I have decided the take to wrap the entire car. I know this is something I will appreciate in the future it is an expensive car that I plan to keep for a few years. In our case we have a family of 5 kids and that put a lot of wear and tear on the car so this...

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Ok, desicion has been made to wrap the whole car. Now the vendor has offered me to use satin film instead of glossy. Anybody with a transparent satin over white paint? Thanks!

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Thanks! I wanted them to look as stock as possible so I ordered them in Satin Black. I love the looks and so far it does not seem to affect much of the range, though I need more time to give a definite feedback.

    I am definitely wrapping the doors, I plan on taking the MX to NC for skiing in Jan/Feb so I am sure this is the kind of roads it will be exposed to...

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Everytime I look I the bill keeps going up... :confused: I guess is the price to pay for driving this cars, I took delivery of my white MX 100D for father day, I am absolutely amazed by the car. Cannot wait to mount the Vossen NV2s

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Not saying I want to wrap the roof, but when I spoke with a vendor he said that is one of the areas I can cut if I wanted to save money. I assumed the full wrap included the roof.

    Must wrap areas on MX

    This is great news! Thanks for taking the time to ask the SC, I will confirm once I take delivery on Sat

    Can I at least rull out the roof? I am trying to save some money here! ;)

    Must wrap areas on MX

    I am totally OCD as well... That being said I have a 2016 BMW M4 without any protection at all, now that is primarily my car while this will be the family car which means it will be exposed to a lot more things.
  27. bairesman

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Understand your point, in my discussions with one of the vendors he said the roof is one of those areas that I could probably cut. The purpose of this post was to get some real experiences like the ones you guys shared. I know by Murphy's law rocks will be attracted towards the area without...

    Must wrap areas on MX

    Hi there, looking for recommendations on must-wrap areas on the Model X. I know it will be nice to wrap the entire car but I am looking for insight on those areas that suffer the most. Like the front of the car, I saw a post about the falcon door panels as they seem to get chipped by rocks...

    Suntek vs Xpel?

    Hi there, can I ask you guys what was the damage to your wallet for this kind of protection? I am taking delivery of a brand new MX and want to know whether I should consider this. Feel free to PM me if you don’t want to share the number

    All weather floor mats - 7 seat configuration

    I am on the same boat, I am taking delivery of my MX soon and I really don't want to use it without proper mats. My kids will destroy it in a month and the Tough Pro mats are not my preferred choice...

    Nexen tires?

    You can get the Goodyear F1s at Tirerack for $475 the complete set after a $100 rebate. Not sure I would save on tires... my 2 cents

    Better financing rates than via Tesla?

    I got approved for 2.49% from Tesla as well, I was disappointed they did not keep the 1.49% offered when we ordered the deal...

    22' tire recommendation

    I wonder how much will the forged wheels I bought affect these numbers since they are lighter, I cannot wait to take delivery of my Model X and see it for myself! Stay tuned for a report around July, though I am not sure about the tires yet. Mostly between Pirellis and Contis

    Also any reason why I should not consider the Yokos Parada Spec X? Anybody who had tried them?

    22' tire recommendation

    Great, did you get them with or without the foam inserts?
  45. bairesman

    22' tire recommendation

    Great, I don't have to buy the tires right away since I am still waiting for the delivery of my MX. I will be interested in your feedback once you get them installed. Thanks in advance

    22' tire recommendation

    Hi there, I was just informed my Vossen NV2 are ready for pickup and I am looking for recommendations on tires. I see Goodyears, Pirellis, Yoko on Tirerack. Any recommendations for a southern florida resident? Also are those foam inserts effective? Thanks in advance! Martin

    Thank you, that makes sense.

    getting my X in less than 48 hours.

    Thanks Rumi11 and Verygreen. So is this something you do in all of your cars or only in Teslas? My apologies but I am still not sure why I would want the footage unless I feel I am going to need it in the future (AP accident or something). Thanks again and my apologies for the basic question

    Model X Pirelli PNCS Tire Foam came loose inside

    Quick question as I am waiting for my new rims to arrive and shop around for the matching tires. Is that “noise cancelling foam” really needed? The Tesla version of the Pirellis are more than 25% more expensive than the standard ones... Thanks!
