Set of four factory 20" staggered wheels and tires. Two Continental 275/45R20 and two Continental 265/45R20 tires. One wheel has scuff mark from light encounter with curb. Includes sensors. Not cracked or otherwise damaged. Please click through pictures to see high quality pictures.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned this (unless if I missed it) but there is a SC going up where the old Chrysler & Jeep dealer use to be. Being going there for years to get my Jeeps repaired (recalls mostly). The space was too tight for them but it should be more than enough for Tesla.
Set of four 19" Factory Wheels with Tires (TLC)
I have a set of four factory 19" wheels on 245x35x19 Goodyear tires. The tires are in excellent condition, almost new. Wheels are in poor shape. They aren't bent or anything like that, but they have curb marks and paint residue. Ideal for...
Just got the 6.0 update earlier today. After the first drive the car doesn't come out of Off position. I tried everything (steering wheel reset, changing battery, etc). Called tech support and remote reset worked but same thing comes back when I get out of the driver side seat. I did...
Looks like my alignment is really bad. At about 7400 miles I noticed that my driver rear tire is toast.
Scheduled a service appointment for later this month at the factory to get the alignment inspected.
Meanwhile have to use factory 19s.
It's a shame how poorly the wear on the back tire is...
Got in a few hours today at the 2013 SEMA show and only covered about half the show. Saw only two Model S.
The cover below is custom made at about a grand a pop.

Finally pulled the trigger and got her Opti Coated (Pro). It looks great but only time will tell the true value.
Johnny at Distinctiv_Detailing did a great job taking care of my baby.

Road Trip(s): East Bay to Lake Tahoe
Alright I've now made two trips from Hayward to Tahoma (west shore Lake Tahoe near Homewood, 10 minutes outside of Tahoe City, 35 minutes from 50/89 Y).
First trip up I took HWY 50 to charge up at Folsom SC station. Pleasantly surprised with easy access to...
Had a quick chat with someone at Tesla about how amazing the P85+ is and he hinted that there will be one coming out in the near future that will do zero to sixty in 3.3 seconds. He wouldn't give me anymore details.
I've been reading endlessly about Model S for several weeks now. Looks like I may have found a winner (slight used 2013 P85+).
What are some things to look or research while inspecting the car?
I'm assuming the factory warranty is easy to transfer and it should cover any warranty related issues.
I'm taking delivery in three weeks and need to figure out which service plan to go with.
I never bought into the service/warranty plans in the past because I could have just about any shop work on my car. But as we know, Tesla is a whole different animal. Since I'm in the east Bay Area I'm...
My 85P is being built as we speak so I have another 4 weeks or so to drool over what it would be like to own a Tesla.
I'm also wondering what are my options for aftermarket accessories. At this point I've only found very few accessories (and some in the works).
I understand that with every new...
Picking up my car sometime towards the end of the month and either going to get factory 21" wheels or buy new aftermarket wheels.
Please drop me a line if you have a set available in or near the Bay Area.
Our cabin in Tahoe is about 222 miles out. About 66 miles of the drive is mostly uphill (hwy 80).
Wondering if I can make it up there without a pit stop in Folsom for a charge with a P85 battery pack?
I'm particular wondering if anyone has gone from east bay to the west shore?
