    I'd love to say I have insider info on that, but I was indeed only quoting Elon's tweet on the matter.

    Wider tires on stock 20" rim

    My bad, sorry about that... yes, 245/35R20.

    Wider tires on stock 20" rim

    245/45R20 will work fine on the OE wheels and is only 1.1% larger in overall diameter, so at 60 mph your speedo will only be off by about 0.6 mph. Note that the difference in O.D. from when your tire is new compared to when it is worn to the wear bars is on average about 2.0%, so this isn't a...

    Locking wheel nuts

    Compared to all the OE and aftermarket nuts I've worked with I'd say it isn't so much that the Gorilla has an unusually small seating area so much as it Tesla's that are on the large side. Nothing wrong with that, obviously Tesla likes a lot of seat engagement for whatever reason. But just for...

    Replika R187 wheels causing issues..

    Not yet, should have later this summer. Anyone else with general questions please PM me, I really don't want to break forum rules about discussing products publicly (unless there are technical concerns like this thread).

    Replika R187 wheels causing issues..

    That sounds like the normal behaviour when reversing, as the toe-in alignment that normally makes your front wheels "stable" and want to seek to center themselves travelling forward actually works the other way when reversing and tends to make the steering want to continue turning, especially...

    Replika R187 wheels causing issues..

    Hello all, so sorry I didn't catch this thread sooner, and I hope the Mods won't mind me chiming in to help resolve this, as I work for the parent company Fastco. We only started received sporadic reports of this issue mid-winter and it took us a little time to isolate it. It appears that at...

    You beat me to it... Guessing they'll be up and running in the next few weeks.

    Winter Tires and Rims - Canadian Availability

    Good stuff, looks like your OE nuts will work. As for caliper clearance, highly unlikely that the diameter will cause an issue as just about any 18" wheel will clear. It's what we refer to as X-factor, that is the horizontal protrusion of the caliper towards the spoke area of the wheel, that you...

    Winter Tires and Rims - Canadian Availability

    Two things I'd want to check to be sure before proceeding with those: 1. Is the lug seat conical (straight taper) or ball (rounded)? Very often steel or alloy wheels with a 5x114.3 pattern and a 64.1 mm center bore are designed specifically for Honda and Acura applications, which all have ball...

    Winter Tires and Rims - Canadian Availability

    Correct. But we're going to make a Model 3 version of the Model S Turbine in 18" with the 5x114.3 pattern, will be available this fall.

    Winter Tires and Rims - Canadian Availability

    Absolutely, if you go to our website you can now look up all available wheels directly for Model 3 and even see what they look like on the car with our iConfiguator app.
  13. Mad Hungarian

    Would 20x9 front and 20x10.5 rear wheels fit Model 3?

    These specs are fine, as long as the manufacturer can confirm the design in question fits over the brake calipers. Note that you will need centering rings to bring the center bore size down to 64.1.

    Alright everybody, we have a location and a schedule! Event will be held at the private club in Chateau St-Ambroise, 4020 St-Ambroise st. in Montreal. Opening is 11:00 pm and the BIG show (hopefully on time) is obviously at midnight While we wait we will have presentations from: Simon-Pierre...

    Montreal Final Reveal Party

    OK folks, some news here, our friends at AVEQ have taken charge of the event and have a good lineup of presentaions for us. They originally had confirmed a nice venue in the Old Montreal district but road closures due to the Formula E event are going to make it tough to reach so they are working...

    Montreal Final Reveal Party

    Hello all, As everyone here certainly knows, we are now only a matter of weeks away from the start of Model 3 production and the Final Reveal event. To celebrate we'll be holding a party in Montreal where Model 3 and EV enthusiasts of all stripes can get together and watch it happen in a fun...

    Model 3 Mule Sightings

    I think what everyone is perceiving as "dimples" or any other shape difference between the Alpha silver and the release silver is due to the contrasting/highlighting effects of the Alpha's Hyper Silver finish (which without question is NOT the same as the plain silver on the release car seen...

    Model 3 Ludicrous 2.0 seconds flat?!!

    LOL! You know, until just a few years ago I had no idea Hrobosky was the original M.H. My boss took to calling me that long ago and I always assumed it was a reference to the crazed Lapchik character (seen in my avatar)from The Gumball Rally, a 70's car cult film that we both love. My penchant...

    Model 3 Ludicrous 2.0 seconds flat?!!

    Trev, you're harshing my buzz. I was all ready to pull the trigger on a military surplus G-suit :D. Kidding aside, I wasn't realistically expecting the max 3 setup to hit 2-ish seconds. Conversly though I don't buy that Tesla would limit it to protect the S's honour. As has been pointed out...

    Road trip in the US and Canada - meet us!

    Sorry to now officially threadjack this, but I think I've finally got a good plan going here... Since the Place Vertu shopping mall near the center of the island in Montreal has a spanking new 12-stall SC facility and a pretty good breakfast place called Allo Mon Coco, I thought it be a good...

    Would You Be Willing To Share Your Car?

    I thought exactly the same thing when I heard it, and I suspect this comes as a direct reply to those who've already expressed concerns about those issues.

    Would You Be Willing To Share Your Car?

    The most secure system I've yet seen for vetting guest drivers for private rentals is Turo's. I had to send them all kinds of different pics of me with both my drivers licence and passport for them to run checks before I could rent from them (getting a S70D from a gent on that site for my visit...

    Would You Be Willing To Share Your Car?

    Yes, "Sometimes" and "Only to people I know" are good options that I should have included. Interestingly I did consider the "only to people I know" part, but then I thought anyone I trusted unconditionally with the car would be a relatively close friend or good acquaintance and I likely wouldn't...

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    I am definitely curious to see how many here are willing to share, started a poll over in the Autonomous section to find out: Would You Be Willing To Share Your Car?

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    I'm not sure how you got your Model X range figure, as the current 90D is rated for 260 miles on 90kWh, so 180kWh should get you past 500. Agreed though that a big rig battery would be verrrry substantial. Maybe it would need to be integrated into the trailer chassis? I'm sure it could be just...

    Part 2 of Unveil - Uber-type ability to rent out your car

    Damn, and I just started another in the Autonomous section... :oops:
  29. Mad Hungarian

    Would You Be Willing To Share Your Car?

    Now that full autonomy and fleet sharing are officially part of Master Plan Part Deux, I'm curious to see how many present/future owners here would be willing to participate. Would you let your baby out un-escorted if it generated revenue?

    Part 2 of Unveil - Uber-type ability to rent out your car

    Yes, props to the OP for calling this one. I'm really curious to see who'd be willing to let their car go out un-escorted though, I think this calls for a poll...

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    The economics of that are certainly true, but I wonder how many people would want to do it in practice. I'd be curious to see a poll as to what percentage of folks would be willing to let their second most valuable possession loose in the public domain. I know I would be very leery of doing so...

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    You are indeed correct... when I read the original press on it I was under the impression it plug-in charge capable with the turbine taking over once the battery was depleted. Looks like it's not, so their calling it an "electric truck" is pretty misleading, it's a just a plain old hybrid. But...

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    Yeah, I immediately thought of the Oslo statement too when I read this. I think he's underestimating how many people will still want to own their own car for the next decade or two at least, and a still sizable number for a long time after that.

    Tesla Master Plan Part 2

    Awesome to finally see the next 10 years laid out. Much of it expected as already discussed or at least hinted at publicly: Solar acquisition, compact SUV, full autonomy, high speed manufacturing, ride sharing, buses. The pickup was a nice surprise although certainly a no-brainer for the North...

    Road trip in the US and Canada - meet us!

    Count me in and looking forward to it as discussed, however I can only make it on the 14th or 15th. In one of the stranger and most delightful turn of events that resulted from my camp out, I got an invite from a Tesla insider (who wishes to remain anonymous) for a factory tour and will be just...

    Intense competition today... Model S had jumped to 16 but Roadster is right on its tail now with 15 shirts and climbing. This is better than Formula E :cool:

    Roadster EVOLVE Wearables

    You guys (and gals!) are awesome! Thanks to RobsJester we just hit 12 Roadster shirts, two more and you'll be beating your Model S brethren in this round. Pretty impressive when you consider the group size disparity. I'm really anxious to see where the pics take us, this should be fun.

    Roadster EVOLVE Wearables

    Wow. UK, Canada, U.S., Hong Kong, Switzerland, we've got a whole UN Tesla delegation going on here :) Which gives me an idea... How about everyone who's ordered a shirt posts up a selfie wearing it next to something recognizably iconic from your homeland? Even better if you can get your Roadster...

    Model 3 EVOLVE Wearables 2.0

    Hello all, As some of you may recall, in order to camp out in the frosty parking lot of Tesla Montreal back in March for the Model 3 reservation event I had put together a tent with custom evolution graphics. Quite a number of you asked if I could produce a T-shirt with those same graphics, so I...

    New campaign launched for these, as announced in Plug In America's June Newsletter. S, 3 and X are all doing well, but only 1 lonely order for Roadster this time round. C'mon, let's show 'em who really started the rEVolution! Roadster EVOLVEwear Many thanks to all who've supported so far :)

    Model S EVOLVE Wearables

    Skotty, thanks for the order and the feedback, glad you like it! Yes, 70 pcs ordered of all types on the first go-round so enough to cover the donations and launch a new campaign yesterday for those who would like their own. Plug In America added it to their June newsletter and that's really got...

    Will Model 3 be your first American car?

    I said no in the poll even though I owned two 70's era Mercury Capris (sold as Fords in their native European market), but they were really German designed-and-built with nearly zero U.S. content. Except for a 626 and a Miata the other 9 cars have all been VW or Audi. There have been lots of...

    Possible reservation number hint on My Tesla

    1st to reserve in store in Montreal at 9:00 am, so I would think one of the first in North America. My number is 370XXX.

    Roadster EVOLVE Wearables

    Glad to do it. I don't know how anyone here could possibly ignore the Roaster... I'd kill to have one! Regarding the PIA logo, since the proceeds are being split among three different EV orgs I thought it might get a bit busy if we put all three of their logos on it. If this winds up working...

    Roadster EVOLVE Wearables

    It's 50 pcs per car model, so all clothing types count towards the total. Note however that this goal is only required to hit my break-even to cover the donations. But no matter what though every item ordered will be delivered. If we don't hit the goal it just means I'll be out of pocket for the...

    Model 3 EVOLVE Wearables

    I hear you! Sadly their system doesn't (yet) allow this. This is because they have to tally up all the orders and run them at the end date of each "campaign". Here's a link to their explanation on it: Combine Orders Sorry about that :(

    Model X EVOLVE Wearables

    Glad you like it! I find the Falcon wing doors really make this version a little extra cool.
