    Replacement Tires for 19" wheels

    Got the winter tires on today, so now I can get my inspection done and pass. Starting to look for all season or spring/summer only tires to replace the quadratracs. Any thoughts? I’d prefer not to spend 1600 for the Michelin, are summer tires worth it or too niche for the NE?

    Replacement Tires for 19" wheels

    I have the Vredestein Quatrac Pro I can't tell you the number of miles but I got them 3/21 and need to replace them since both fronts are bald on the inside. Likely more of an alignment problem then tire, but this will be the 3rd set of summer tires since 6/20. I will put my winter set on I...

    JuiceBox 40

    Well, I just opened the unit up. turn the blue pot thing a tiny bit to the right, maybe half or a quarter of a turn. Maybe it got loose in transit? Charged 40a. I'll check it again tomorrow after work. Thanks for the help! Jeff

    JuiceBox 40

    The circuit is 50a and I guess since there is no warranty to void what do I have to lose? Homeowner's insurance is paid up...

    JuiceBox 40

    Yes I believe this is the one I have. The enclosure still has a tape label on the cover where the top and bottom join reading "do not remove." I believe I am reading the screen cporrectly 236V charging at 19/19 amps and 5kW

    JuiceBox 40

    Thanks for the input. The person I bought the Juicebox from said he had not problems with it charging a BMW for whatever that is worth. I read on Tesla’s website that the j1772 adapter limits charging to 19 amps, does that sound right? Jeff

    JuiceBox 40

    Hey I just bought a juice non networked Jukebox 40 amp. Used it last night first time to charge my loaner; the car would only charge at 19amps. I just plugged my model Y into it and would also only charge at 19 amps. Swapped it to my mobile connector plugged into the same NEMA 14-50 outlet...

    Problems with Model Y original 19" tires?

    Hey folks... Today I got my new snow tires put on my 2020 LR AWD Model Y with 8500 miles on the original Continentals. As the guys were pulling off my rear tires one of them commented on how much wear there was, all the way down to the wear bar indicators. This was the same on both rear tires...

    Equal Winter Tire Size?

    Well then I guess 4 new wheels and tires. I've tried to see these on Craig's list and FB marketplace and a local repair shop that specializes in Volvo's. They are really nice. Thanks for the help, I looked at one of your threads where this came up and made my brain hurt.

    Well checking https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator my old tires are 3.54% bigger that is too much bigger so looks like I'll be springing fore new tires and wheels

    Equal Winter Tire Size?

    Hey folks I think I have posted this or something similar before. My brain hurts from trying to find a simple answer yes or no. I have a Model Y with 19 inch Gemini wheels and I am looking for snow tires and wheels. I have a set of great Nokian Hakkapellita R2 SUV that I used for 1 season on...

    Service Center Experience Latham NY

    So had my service appointment today. All of the issues, except the front trunk misalignment and the rear seat backs not being level were “within spec” which I sort of expected. The seat and front trunk were fixed. Best of all I was informed at delivery that the factory had run out of trailer...

    Where to buy winter wheels

    I've seen that and that is a bit more than I am willing to pay. I got 4 Nokian 17 inch Hakkapelita R2 SUV last year for about $1K and the wheels for my old Volvo won't fit the new car. I'm hoping to keep it under $2K.

    Where to buy winter wheels

    I would be very happy with a narrower wheel, but I’m not sure if it would fit the brakes. The Nokian people advised not to use a minus size wheel due to the possibility that it would effect the range. I’m not sure so I figured OEM size wheel and better winter tire.

    Where to buy winter wheels

    Hey folks... The following are the original wheel information and I have been unable to find a source that are not incredibly expensive . I plan on getting a new set of Nokian Hakkapeliitta 3 R SUV for the winter. My local tire shop price for a new wheel in $250 and form the tire $305...

    Tesla Service - Post Delivery

    Well I was proven right. I got a call from Mt Kisco, there was a problem with DMV forms they are going to send them back to us to sign. Oh and BTW no they only log the problems noted at delivery they don't notify service and there is no time frame for the missing tow hitch it will likely be...

    Generation 1 or European Mobile charger for Model Y

    Hey folks... I’ve been looking on eBay and have seen a number of generation 1 and Europe spec mobile connectors. Can generation 1 or Europe spec mobile connectors, with a NEMA 14-50 plug attached, charge a Model Y? While they are not much cheaper it does increase the pool available to bid on...

    Tesla Service - Post Delivery

    At delivery yesterday in Mt Kisco NY, the delivery person took pictures and noted all of the things I found wrong. He said he would notify service. I just sent them an email since I take pretty much everything this place says with a grain of salt. My drive home is 99 miles so there is that.

    And a blue one .. VIN 6497

    I've had similar thought about my Kisco being rushed. I’m having problem with them connecting with my credit union and getting documents to them. Tonight I just found out that the cancelled my trade in and need new odometer photos. I accepted their offer for $8800 which is a little low in my...

    Home charger options

    I bought the adapter yesterday and will likely guy a second mobile connector. That's the plan in my head as of this moment. Does the mobile connector automatically begin charging upon plugging in or can it be scheduled?

    Home charger options

    I'm going down this rabbit hole and getting frustrated. I wish there was a reputable source, like Consumer Reports that has ratings on these to say that X, Y and Z and all reputable and useable whereas A, B and C not so much. It looks like the NEMA 14-50 plug with the mobile connector is a...

    Home charger options

    I'm trying to be hardware agnostic. Right now the Tesla is the car to get, but in 5 years, 10 years? Having an standard j1772, CCS or something less proprietary is what I'm thinking of. What happens when my wife gets an EV or the kids? Trying to not be locked into an ecosystem. Now I do own...

    I'm not sure if it is cheapo I am wondering still if it better to get a second charger to mount in the house. That way there is always a charger in the house, and in the car. My worry would be getting stuck at work due to snow storm forgot the charger and have to plug in the parking garage...

    I'm wondering since my credit union's financing approval ends after thirty days and I have already had that happen once, should I wait for the VIN and then re-apply or do it now to cut down on the time. Any thoughts? Jeff

    Information on Modifications to reservations

    Just got an email saying that the order is modified but also looks like my order date was pushed back to today from, well earlier than today. Wonder if I lost my place in the queue. Alas, no VIN either by manual search or using the extension that StanT mentioned. So be it.

    Information on Modifications to reservations

    So, interesting thing happened after I posted this. I got a call from the regional Tesla shop about an hour after I got off the phone with the person at corporate. I had test driven a model 3 in November and was seriously considering it instead of waiting for the “coming soon” model Y. When...

    Information on Modifications to reservations

    I was watching someone online install an aftermarket tow kit, much less money. I was having doubts on the white interior with 2 kids and since it was cost neutral I decided to have it installed at the factory instead of later or DIY aftermarket.

    And that was why I did it today, the bike carrier is more important especially with camp cancelled for the kids. Thanks for the external validation :-) Jeff

    Information on Modifications to reservations

    Hey folks... I placed an order for Model Y, AWD, long range, gemini wheels, white interior before the whole world fell apart. In the meantime Tesla has introduced the tow package for the same cost as the white interior. I just got off the phone with someone from Tesla and asked to modify my...

    How did the delivery go? I'm still drafting contract waiting for VIN assignment since 1/30/20 and no answer from either TESLA HQ or Mt. Kisco when called or emailed. Curious if the time frame will be days, weeks, months? The credit union financing and their trade in offer expires 1mo from...

    Auto train?

    Just a thought, has anyone taken their Tesla on the Auto train to FL? My mother lives close to Sanford FL and we have done the trip twice with the kids, not as cheap compared to flying but total cost of trip a little less since no rental car. Is there a big phantom drain when the car is unused...

    Home charger options

    Thank you all for the info. Sounds like the mobile connector to a 14-50 outlet is the best option at this time. I am trying to keep my options agnostic in an attempt to future proof, so the Tesla wall charger seemed to lock me into the ecosystem, like buying a mac. (which I have) The other...

    Home charger options

    Hey folks. Waiting for my delivery TXT or Email or what have you and I have been thinking about charging. Is it really needed to have a Tesla wall charger or even something like the Juicebox or Clipper Creek EVSE devices in the house? Would a second mobile connector, like the one that comes...
