    MYP - 21" uberturbines and tires for those who want upgrade

    Selling my factory - perfect condition 21 uberturbines from my MYP with the stock pirellis... with around 3K miles only. Sitting in my garage. I've run 21s and 20s on the model Y. 21 simply looks better and doesn't really change mileage or dynamics enough from my experience. So I'm...

    Model Y Roof Rack Whistling Sound

    I wonder if 3rd party roof racks don't whistle.... perhaps if they were a 1/2" taller or shorter. Sorry--- it's not possible for those who say theirs doesn't whistle on the exact same car, unless the racks vary by when they are made. Yes it's possible people don't notice it or drive...

    Model Y Roof Rack Whistling Sound

    Yes... mine whistles around the same speed. Noticed it right away. Would love to hear if there's a life hack for that. I don't have ski racks on the OEM racks yet, but I'd think the whistle is the space between the glass roof and bottom of the OEM rack so may not matter.

    Confirmation on 275/35R21 on front.

    yes. I tried it. Plan to run square later. PIc of 275/35/21 on 10.5 up front. No rubbing for me during trial. Scroll to bottom of this thread: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/myp-square-setup-w-21s.241903/

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Does anyone notice more "roll" if you take a corner fast with the increased profile? Just curious how much of the performance portion gets lost going up in size.

    21” Model Y Ubertines full set, no tires, no TPMS

    That's a smoking deal for someone

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Thank you. Great info. I've found a square set of uberturbine 21x9.5s so was debating between running 265/40/21 in a square set up or just upsizing the tires on stock staggered set -- which looks a bit better. But I like square setups. Was hoping you said it rubs in the rear then my...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Does everyone who's done this still think the back never bottoms out? Even with 5 adults, loaded, etc.? These setups look so nice.

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Depends who you ask and what you tube channel you reviewed. I've seen some call them hockey pucks on ice and others taking high speed turns in the snow. I think AS would be fine on an AWD. I opted for a winter set but went back and forth.

    Wheels and tires for for that X5 M look!!

    Why not run 265/40/21 front, and 285/40/21 or 295/35/21 in rear. There's a great thread about it. Looks great. Or get fronts 21x9.5 and square it with 265/40/21.

    Model 3 Performance tires (low mile takeoffs) $300 total

    Hey all, I bought M3P 20" wheels/tires to make a winter set for my MYP. I had the Pirelli Zero 235/35/20 tires taken off to put on snow tires. I love the Pirelli's on my Y in the summer, but there's no reason to save these because I have 21s. These have low miles (about 2500). A new set...

    Model Y Performance and winter tires

    Whoever told you that was either misleading or clueless. I'm in Tahoe area part time. Decided on a 2nd set of wheels to use for winter. I picked up 20" uberturbines from a M3P and run 265/40/20 winter tires (Michelin Alpin). A little bigger than the stock OEM 20 setup. Also square not...

    255/45R20 Tires on the 20" Inductions?

    thank you for posting those. They look good to me! Think I’ll go with that size. I’ll look more into that specific tire too… although it’s crazy how many winter tires aren’t available right now. I’ve done quite a bit of research and at some point we start splitting hairs because of all the...

    255/45R20 Tires on the 20" Inductions?

    @Schulz1983 Yes to more pictures please! I've got 255/45/20s (Blizzaks) and 265/40/20 (Alpins) in the cart. Gotta figure which to buy! Would love to see the 265s. I will be using the M3P 20" uberturbines though.... so 20x9 vs 20x9.5. And on an MYP - but don't think that matters...

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    NO! It's no longer safe! Your best move at this point is to trade me your new tires for the OEM stock tires. I'm willing to do that for you. Paying it forward. :)

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    I drove it like I stole it. It doesn’t rub. I’ll bet 295s would not rub either. Now if you start going taller, then maybe? I think it’s got more room than that thread with the 265/40s up front

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    I'll let you know, but I think I prefer the fronts too - even though only one inch narrower. I'd prefer narrower for snow vs wider for performance or more aggressive stance. I'd run 265s on the square fronts. If I had the square rear I'd run 275s or 285s.

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    Turning right no problem. At least 2" clearance in front. Turning left, the back of tire is close... probably 9/16" or so, maybe 3/4" of open air, hard to measure, with 275/35/21 using the 21x10.5 +48. But never rubbed.

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    Rainy and windy day here... so had some time. Here's what 21 x 10.5 Uberturbines look like on the front. These are the stock 275/35/21 tires. I could not make them rub at all. Took some quick turns and and made tight circles in both directions.

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    @derichio02 Yeah there are a lot of 21s for sale. Don’t hijack thread please. This thread is about swapping fronts/rears with other members to make a square setup so we can rotate tires.

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    Yeah plenty have put 265s on the 9.5s, and 285s or 295s on the 10.5s

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    Throwing this back out there... anyone want to trade wheels to make a square set up? I'm looking to trade my rear/wider wheels and tires for someone's fronts. Although I'd consider the rears. Can rotate tires this way and get a lot more miles out of them! Fronts do better in the rain and...

    Getting Model Y to be "performance" without the package?

    Last advice would be to ignore many threads. Forums can be useful as a great resource... but unfortunately also create misinformation and panic because of the variety of tastes and expectations from a large user base and 3rd party vendors selling solutions to "problems." Not saying their...

    Without the 1 foot rollout, probably. There's videos of the 21s achieving 3.5 with rollout too.

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    I'm after the fronts too.... otherwise... sure. :)

    Suspension Clearances for Wider / Taller tires

    Love this thread. I'm curious how other 21s with less offset would do with 265/40/21s up front as far as rubbing. Guess it depends on the shape of the plastic in the wheel well.

    In a Tribute to Unsprung Weight

    What 21 forged wheels did you go with on the m6? I haven't seen many alternate 21s on the MYP. A 21" light weight forged wheel for looks with a carbon fiber, snap-on aero for long distance would be sweet. :)

    In a Tribute to Unsprung Weight

    Of course it should. But we are referring to the video of the MYP doing 0-60 faster using 18" martians. But my belief is that the smaller diameter tires had MORE to do with quickness improvements than weight, because they did not stick with stock overall diameter. Not saying light isn't...
  35. W

    In a Tribute to Unsprung Weight

    Yup -- that video of the MYP with 18" martians is super misleading. Kills me how often it's referred to. My guess is the difference was not nearlty as notable with same total diameter. Why not compare apples to apples?

    Bad Experience with Teslarati

    I've sent multiple emails no response. That's a bummer -- communication is the one thing small companies can control. Assuming spidermax mats (rear cargo) are backordered -- but no communication with a weeks time and doesn't say anything on site. Anyone have another source for the rear...

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    Mine have around 2500 miles. Still essentially new as well. No scratches... but I'm in northern california so the swap might be a little more difficult if you're in Los Angeles. hmmmm

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    MYP square setup w/ 21s

    I'm interested in a square setup with 21s on the MYP. Several have posted about doing it. Anyone have pictures of theirs they'd share? For those interested in doing the same... This could be a matchmaker thread as some may want to use the 21x10.5" all around and others might want to...

    Trade two 21 uberturbines for two of yours for square setup?

    Trade two 21 uberturbines for two of yours for square setup?

    Wish you were up closer to northern california. Mine only has 2500 miles... would trade someone the 10.5" rear 21s for their fronts (9.5") 21s. Heading up closer this way?

    Vendor UPDATE (IN STOCK): Be notified when LDCRS 2022/2021 Model Y Floor Mats are available! (And launch discount)

    So for those who have not signed up... what's the status for future purchases? I know you're in start-up mode - but if you're not on the list is there even a future expected date? Looks like a clean product. But it's "not available" vs backorder. Thank you.

    Trade two 21 uberturbines for two of yours for square setup?

    Anyone else interested in this matchmaker thread? XrayDU and I may both be after front wheels -- but not 100% on that as there are pros and cons - especially with taller tire. Please post if anyone else is interested in a square 21 setup. Keep the beautiful ubers and 21s but square to rotate.

    Trade two 21 uberturbines for two of yours for square setup?

    Lot's of talk about square setups lately... personally I don't have any issue with ride quality of 21s, but would love to rotate tires. I know others have put rear wheels up front to be able to put 265/35/21s or 275/35/21s all the way around. I'm now considering this. I would even use the...
