    Dallas vs Plano Service Center

    I've used both -- Plano probably only three times and Dallas maybe around 10. I can't really say there's a consistent difference. Both can be hit or miss.

    how much mileage do you lose if you remove the aero wheel cover?

    I am running stock lug nuts on my new wheels, and I had a hard time finding just lug nut covers without aero caps. So I bought this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W7CWMZX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I'm not using the aero caps, but they seem quality.

    Custom monoblock forged wheels Info - new discussion thread

    They are the TSportline TSS, which are copies of the Model S arachnid wheels made by Tesla. So my guess is they already have them.

    how much mileage do you lose if you remove the aero wheel cover?

    Something like 4 percent at highway speeds. So unless you are really pushing it on range and doing a lot of higher speed driving, you probay won't even notice.

    Titan7 T-S5. 19x9 square in techna bronze. Stock performance height. I’ve posted a bunch of pics since I got them in October that you can find in my post history. If there are pics of anything specific you want I’m happy to snap some.

    Thanks. I had the same concern, but a bronze set was in stock for a deal and I was impatient. So I rolled the dice, and they ended up looking better than I thought. Really happy with how it turned out.

    Performance winter tires for M3P and 18" vs 19" wheels

    There is a thread in here with a link to a google spreadsheet with a bunch of 18” wheels confirmed to fit on the MP3. Might be a good place to start.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I got some cheap covers on Amazon and they look fine: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W7CWMZX/ Next time I need a rotation I’ll probably pick up a set of black Wheel Mates from Model+.

    I am doing exactly this. They are fine.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    If money was not a factor I’d get the Signatures. For me it was, so I went with the Titan 7s, and have been really happy with them. The Vossens look nice, but you can get a fully forged wheel for not that much more, so I’d rule those out.

    Tesla auto wipers is a real danger

    The auto wipers worked way better on my 2018. Never had to touch them. On the 2021 they are terrible. But the reverse is true for the auto high beams. 2021 is much improved.

    I'd also be interested. I am thinking about buying some MPP coilovers at some point and would need to find a local installer.

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    No personal experience but I don’t see any way a 19 x 11 fits. The 19x10 probably will fit if you use spacers. You’ll also need some hub centric rings because I believe the bore size for mustangs is larger than the 64.1 on the 3. The problem though is a 285/35/19 tire is very close to 27” in...

    How can any non-OEM wheels work on the performance model?

    These are what you're looking for. You can use any hub ring with them: Performance Hub Stepped Lip Delete Kit Or you can buy hub ring made to account for it like @HORN HIGH ACES posted. Or you buy wheels specifically made for the Model 3 performance that accounts for the lip so you don't have...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    It seems like they might? See here: Tesla 19” sport wheels on Model 3 Performance with PUP? The only issue should be whether the wheel has the extra step to account for the hub lip on the performance models. The thread I linked seems to be evidence that the sport wheels do have the extra lip.

    In progress: Model 3 pulling loaded 1,900lbs~ 5x8 utility trailer 1,700 miles

    I think OP means he was just using TACC and not full AP. So one click down on the stalk to regulate speed relative to the semi in front, but not letting the car steer.

    Keycard required every time when trying to drive..

    Have you done a soft reboot of the car by holding down both steering wheel buttons? Also restart your phone. If you have done that plus all of the above, it sounds like a problem I'd contact Tesla about.

    Would you part out and ship just the trunk mat?

    In progress: Model 3 pulling loaded 1,900lbs~ 5x8 utility trailer 1,700 miles

    I knew this thread was going to be great as soon as I saw that the second photo is a CAD drawing. I know the average speed was <60, but 328Wh/mi while towing a fully loaded trailer is pretty impressive. There are plenty of owners whose lifetime average is higher than that.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I didn't dig super deep because they were more than I wanted to spend, but I think $3500 or so is what a monoblock set will cost you.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Check out BC Forged. They have so many designs there will probably be one or two you like. The TD03 and the whole RT series are super classic 5- and 7-spoke wheels. And they have a lot of "softer" split spoke designs as well. And I think they are a pretty well known and established brand...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Model+ recommends 235/40/19 on 19x9, so you should be fine. 18-20" Titan 7 T-S5 Wheel Set Your other option would be to see if you could exchange the tires for 245 width, presuming they haven't been mounted and are still new. I am running 245/40/19 on my 19x9 Titan7s.

    Give me the VIN

    I had a really good experience with GMTV in September. They were the highest bid out of CarMax, Vroom, and Carvana, and then I got them to increase the offer by another $500. All of the above were higher than the Tesla trade offer by a few thousand dollars. GMTV is local here, so I signed the...

    Tesla Model 3 T-S5 FORGED SPLIT 5 SPOKE WHEELs and Tires (so-cal)

    Not the OP, but you will be well over 27'' diameter with that size tire, so I don't think it will work. Certainly you'd need spacers if you were going to try it. See here: 265/40/19 vs 265/35/19

    Haven't seen these posted yet. Fast Wheels out of Canada is releasing a fully forged, direct fit wheel for the 3 and Y, the EV04. It comes in 19'' and 20'' finished in gray, clear brushed, and satin black. Cost is $2,900 to $3,400 depending on size and finish. This puts them relatively on par...

    Vroom Sale [of a model 3] Gone Bad

    I believe the low offer I got was from Carvana at $33k and the high was from Vroom for $35k. This for a 2018 LR RWD with 51k miles. GMTV paid $36,500 for it. Not a huge difference, but in line with being about 10 percent higher. I googled my VIN a few days ago and saw it was listed in October on...

    I don't know where they operate, but I sold my old 3 to Give Me the VIN. They were already the highest bid between Carvana, Vroom, and Carmax, and I talked them up another $500. The only downside is it's not 100% automated -- you have to talk to a person on the phone to finalize the purchase...
