    Selling winter tires/rims from Model 3 Performance - Grand Rapids, MI

    Just sold my Model 3 Performance to someone in Texas who doesn't need the winter tires/rims, so selling a set of four 18" Nordic non-studded 235/45 R18 Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 winter tires mounted on gloss gunmetal silver 18x8.5 Flow One F2 rims. These rims and tires were barely used. The rims...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Finally got my winter wheels and tires installed Saturday. 18” Flow One F2s in gloss gunmetal silver (from TireRack.com) with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 tires (from SimpleTire.com). I am very happy with look and noticed right away the improved range compared to my stock 20” summer tires. Alloy...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    I had the same experience. TSportline was very accommodating. Ordered the F2 from Tire Rack. Being installed today with Hakkapeliitta R3. Anxious to get them on as winter has come early to Michigan.

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    I ordered the exact same wheels but with Hakkapeliitta R3s. They are getting installed today I think they look great on your car. Anxious to see them on my blue car. I will post pics when I have it back

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    I spoke to them earlier this week and now they are saying the 18” rims won’t ship until mid to late November. I am stuck here in Michigan with a car I can’t drive with snow on the roads and temperatures in the upper 20’s. My patience is getting thin as the date for delivery keeps getting...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Oops, sorry. I meant to ask what WHEELS were you considering on Tire Rack. For the tires, I have settled on the Hakkapeliittas R3’s.

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Thanks for updating us. I am on the verge of doing the same thing. Getting worried that I am going to be stuck without a car to drive here soon. I am curious what tires you have considered on Tire Rack.

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Anxiously waiting to receive mine as well since the stock summer tires won’t do me any good soon enough with temps getting down to freezing at night. Hoping we will see our shipments soon.

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    I have been doing a ton of reading about all three of these tires. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 (R3 is the new version) seems to always come out on the top of most of the comparisons I have seen. I really like the fact that they embed crystals in their rubber compound to give it better traction...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Purchased my 18" Hakkapeliitta R3 tires from SimpleTire.com. Paid $904 for the set of four, with free shipping (included 5% off with email sign-up coupon). Ordered them 10/13, and they delivered 10/17. I haven't been able to mount them yet as I am waiting for my T-sportline rims to arrive...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    To clarify, it wasn't the fact that the 19" rims were the problem, but that the all-season tires from Tesla were like ice skates on the snow-packed roads here in Michigan. Can't believe I lived with them for all four years. It wasn't until I drove a loaner Model X that I realized it was the...

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Thank you everyone for your posts as this has been a great thread to help me decide on what I was going to do for my winter tires. Had 19" stock all-season tires on my 2014 P85D and found them to be horrible for driving in snow, although never changed them out. With the new Performance 3, I...

    Looks like the Hakka's are only available in 245/45 vs. 235/45. This won't be an issue?

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    I have read this thread twice over and have decided to go with the TST-18's for my winter package. Now for the tire choice - Michelin X-iCe or Pirelli Winter Sottozero. What are the pros/cons with each? Should I be considering any others?

    A REAL wireless charging pad for the Model 3

    Received my Nomad yesterday and am very satisfied with it. Agree with all the previous comments. Very high quality build. Wish the cords were about an inch longer but I suppose they made them this way to prevent them from hanging down and potentially get tangled with things in the storage...

    AlloyGators in Silver on 19in Sport Wheels

    I've got these on my P85D, but went with the black ones. I think they blend better, and they have performed flawlessly for me. Almost four years now, and still look great and no curb rash at all despite rubbing against the curb more times than I can count.

    Retrofit Premium Interior Lighting?

    I am in the process of installing aftermarket ambient lighting under the door armrests and am going to tap into the always on 12v going to the window switches. Currently, I have the backdoor panel off and those switches have four wires. I think the lighting power and ground are the two middle...

    Thanks for sharing. I am hoping to drop by there today or tomorrow to charge before heading hack to Michigan. So glad that Tesla has finally added this station.

    Supercharger - Davenport, IA (Quad Cities)

    This is just in time for me as I traveled home to the QCA to visit my parents this week and have limited capability for charging, especially a fast charging option. This is going to make this trip so much nicer in the future.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    Thanks, Pete. :-) I don't have the part number and haven't been able to find it in any of my searches so far. Hopefully, someone on else here on the forum may be able to help us.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    My understanding is that the ambient power plug as well as the window switch always have power so if that is true it would just mean the ambient lighting would always be on. I would be okay with that.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    Thanks, Pete for making these. Installed everything yesterday in only bout 90 minutes. Only thing left to do is the four puddle lights, which I don't have so will have to do the cut-outs for those first. Have you thought about creating a solution for the ambient door lighting for those of us...

    Retrofit Premium Interior Lighting?

    I am thinking of purchasing these and retrofitting them to my doors so I have ambient lighting. I understand from prior threads that the power is available behind the door panel even though I didn't have the premium lighting package in my late P85D (built 12/2004). I can also feel the...

    Supercharger - Davenport, IA (Quad Cities)

    Any idea when this supercharger is likely to be functional. I am planning a trip back to the area in a few weeks, and it seems like it's been "under construction" for an exceptionally long time.

    Supercharger - Davenport, IA (Quad Cities)

    Wow, this is great news. I grew up in the QCA and often travel there from Michigan to visit my family. With the Dixon and now this QCA supercharger available, the trip will be a breeze. Thanks Tesla!

    Chicago or Detroit Xpel Installers

    I highly recommend Clear Auto Bra of Michigan - website is www.norockchips.com. Family owned and operated by Larry and Jen. They completely wrapped my 2014 Model S and did a flawless job. I would recommend them without reservation. They are top notch. Located in Plymouth, MI.

    Firmware 7.1

    It will back out of the garage to the same general distance that you auto-pulled in from, so if you park it 10 feet from the garage opening and have it park itself, when you summon it, the car will only back out to about 10 feet from the garage. Of course, you can also make the car stop by...

    Firmware 7.1

    I am confused by what is being referenced as the "Launch Mode" button. My P85D has the Max Power button under the Sport/Insane toggle, but I have never seen anything that says Launch Mode, either in the previous version 7.0 (2.9.12) or 7/ (2.9.154)?

    Help getting Des Moines, IA Destination Charger

    I too am anxious for super chargers on the I-80 corridor. I live in Grand Rapids, MI with family in the Rock Island area. The trip back in my Tesla is not a fun one considering the distance that has to be traveled from the Country Club Hills supercharger.

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    Had my center console installed by a Ranger a few weeks ago and noticed that you can grab it and shift it a bit side-to-side. I had read some where on here previously that this meant it wasn't installed correctly. Does anyone know what they do to fix it?

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    I have an obeche matte interior with all black leather, and at least to me, the piano black console looks okay in the interior. Granted, I would prefer that it matched my obeche matte interior, but overall I am still satisfied with it.

    Modifying the Tesla Center Console for phones in cases (Pictures Included)

    I found it easiest to get the little mat out by pushing on the front part where it bends up and kind of getting the back to flip up a little. You can then get something under it from the back and pull it up. Make sure to have the USB unplugged or it will get in your way. Then pull it out...

    Modifying the Tesla Center Console for phones in cases (Pictures Included)

    I am fairly confident that you can flip it around based on the they built piece that holds the plug in. As you can see from this photo, the cord can exit from either side - so all you have to do is unscrew it, flip the cord, and I think you would be good to go. Easy to find out as it should...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I didn't realize until these posts that your app can show the actual vampire draw on the battery. That is way cool and is an additional feature I really appreciate. So, I immediately opened up my Remote S app to see what my car is currently drawing. At first, no data was there, but then...

    Premium Rear Console

    Modifying the Tesla Center Console for phones in cases (Pictures Included)

    So, after having my center console installed, I found several issues in charging my iPhone 6. First, the phone ends up not resting against the back so all the wait was on the lightning connector. Secondly, I use a Tech21 case - it's not very thick front to back, but all around the edges its...
