    Thoughts on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 snow tires for 20" performance rims?

    Because the Performance model shows up with 92 load rating in the system and thus is in spec with the database.

    Thoughts on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 snow tires for 20" performance rims?

    I run these as my winter tire. Get the Porsche N-spec version to get the model 3 235/40/19 size. The load rating of 92 is identical to the Performance 20" PS4S load rating. Telling the shop that you have a performance model will eliminate the need for discussion here. Should you need chains for...

    Comparison of Model 3 Performance w/ Two Versions of MPP Coilovers

    Backing the car up onto some "scrap" wood (Jatoba --> Brazilian Cherry) was enough to get the jack and puck barely in place. Here are the requested pictures. This one setting seems to be in the right place after watching Sasha's adjustment video.

    Comparison of Model 3 Performance w/ Two Versions of MPP Coilovers

    Well....I tried to remove a front tire to check for the front isolators and adjust the dampers, but I don't have enough room to get the jack under the jack-point any more. Now I need to find a thinner set of jack isolators or an even lower jack. Better to find this now than when it comes to to...

    Maryill Loops Hill Climb - 3P- on 255 A7

    Very cool! I've driven this great road a few times with the local BMW CCA chapter. It's always a great time. You were brave to push so hard near some of the right turns at the cliff edge. The drops are quite steep in places with no railing or runoff.

    Lightweight wheel owners - your feedback on unsprung reduction vs stock

    I did this on my prior BMW RWD 340. Before: 26 lb wheels 18x8.0 225/45/18 front and 18x8.5 rear 255/40/18. Tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sport After: 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear at 19 lb each. The exact same tires were remounted on the lighter wheels. The car felt like it had more grip...

    Realistic wait times for home charging adapters?

    Tesla shipping for in stock items isn't up to Amazon's standards. Sometimes Tesla has accessories in stock with Amazon fulfillment. Shipping is more predictable like this if they have what you want. This option lived up to Amazon's stated timeline for me. Scheduling an electrician in Portland...
