    M3 performance tire replacement questions

    I had Discount Tire order/install the 255s with no issues. I have the wheel selector in the car set to the track wheels since (which came with 245s) as they are the closest to my setup. Don't know if it makes any difference, but the car is happy so I am too. @gearcruncher yes the straight line...

    M3 performance tire replacement questions

    Yes, PS4Ss Better grip and looks. No difference in noise that I can tell. Haven't had much range testing as it was nearly time to install winter set. The slight increase in sidewall height help with scraping (or lack thereof) with my MPP Sports at recommended height. A little bit of rim...

    M3P Wider Tires on Stock Ubers?

    Nope. MPP Sport coilovers at recommended ride height. I have about 1 finger gap above the tire. The spacers were only for looks (I already had them). I've heard no issues with others running the 4S without spacers, but didn't try. You can tell it's lowered from the second image. If the wheels...

    M3P Wider Tires on Stock Ubers?

    I got the 255/35-20 PS4Ss installed last weekend (thanks to nail shortening the life of my Pirellis). WOW, Couldn't be happier! The turn in isn't as crisp, but once in the corner they load up with nice feel and grip like crazy. PROS Better comfort over small, sharp bumps (coilovers smother...

    Max size tire on 2021 M3P Uberturbine wheels

    Yup. They are 9" so the wider rubber fits without stretch

    Max size tire on 2021 M3P Uberturbine wheels

    I just got the 255/35-20 PS4Ss installed this weekend and it is FANTASTIC! The steering is slightly less direct (expected), but there is nothing that was ruined. ...different strokes

    Max size tire on 2021 M3P Uberturbine wheels

    Different strokes... I want more sidewall than stock but the 265/30 is smaller diameter than stock. It's not going to be stretched so it will look better, but I want more impact protection (potholes, not sidewall).

    M3P Wider Tires on Stock Ubers?

    Make sure they overall tire diameter isn't too tall. Manufacturers have some variance in diameter, in the same size. Some have had rubbing with the upper knuckle on that size (Michelin PS/AS4 is one). Stay at 27" overall and you should be fine (PS4 and Conti DWS06+ are popular) Check Tire Rack...

    [Experience] Multiple warning messages

    I thought I had updated this... Anyway, it was the front right wheel speed sensor getting pinched on the compression of dips. I put MPP coilovers on the car and reused the push in clips that hold the sensor wire. I should have used zip ties since it came loose. Haven't had a problem since they...

    Looks like they are removing stalks from the 3/Y

    You can do that now with the Model 3...as long as it's under 5 MPH. I use it every time I back out of my driveway. I have a side-load garage on a corner in a busy subdivision. I can't see cars coming around corners until I'm in the road. As soon as I am in my lane I flick the stalk, while...

    Should I take out a loan or pay with cash?

    Can you afford the payments on a 4-5 year note? If so, how disciplined are you? Pay cash to save the interest and have the peace of mind of not having a payment. Put the equivalent of the payment in savings/investing every month. If not, you shouldn't consider it since it would take more than...

    Will these wheels fit a 2022 Model 3 Performance?

    They will fit, but will look tucked into the wells. The offset is about the same as the performance wheels while they are 9" wide. It may not matter to you on a winter set, but I had the V1 19" OEM sport wheels (which were +40 offset) and didn't like the look. 35mm Offset might not be too bad...

    255/40ZR19 on 19x9.5 too stretched?

    I have seen many posts about keeping it within 2% of stock overall diameter to avoid problems. 255/35-20 is a popular upsize for the Uberturbines (I'm considering it on my next set). It equates to 27" as well

    This car ROCKS! I went to the Hoosier National Forest today after tweaking the MPP coils (sport settings) and was amazed how well it turns in and GRIPS! It still rode pretty good on the way there. If you're ever in So Indiana (near Louisville KY) head south on scenic hwy 66 for a fantastic road...

    Will value of used performance model increase or decrease?

    I bought my '22 3 Performance the end of last year and Carvana will give me more than I paid for it now (9000 miles). The MSRP has gone up 4k since I ordered and will probably continue to go up in the future. They can sell all they build so they can price them however they want. No car is a good...

    Still having problems with USB Sentry on 2022.20.8

    I had problems with mine until I kept sentry mode on all the time (not to exclude home). It was dismounting every time I got in the garage and failing to remount unless I pulled the drive and reinserted it. It's been 3 months

    MPP Coilover installation verification

    That is definitely lower than the recommended setting from MPP! They say to shoot for 4" battery height to ground to make sure you are still get the full range of damping from the shock. Raising it an inch would be a necessity it you have any speed bumps or steep driveway inclines. Have you...

    What Did You Do With Your 20” Uberturbines?

    Depends on which aftermarket wheels you go with...On Ebay, the Ubers in new condition are going for around $3000 (minus fees). If you go 19" flow forged you should be able to get a full set, with tires, since the wheels and tires are cheaper in the smaller size. If you want 20s it would be...

    Need some help from anyone with a brand new Model 3 Performance and question on diminished value

    I got a quote from Carvana, out of curiosity, last week. 22 Model 3 performance with 9500 miles. They offered me 63,500. Sounds like that was a pretty strong quote from what I see here. I'm not selling, but was frustrated by a failed wheel speed sensor and thought I'd check

    Me too... 22 M3P. Happened the first time after hitting a dip in the road (that I've went through 100+ times). The second time, in the same day, was going over railroad tracks. I'm curious if they will come to me to fix it since the SC is over 100 miles away. I'm a bit worried about warranty...

Perfectly matches the window trim. Easy to replace...

    Tesla M3P 2020 - Spacers = Vibrations

    When you take the wheels off, do you have any stud marks on the pockets on the back of the wheels? Some have mentioned varying pocket depths on their wheels so the studs hit the wheel and keep it from seating fully (causing the vibrations you mentioned).

    Winter Wheel/Tire Set for M3P

    Just an FYI.. the tires won't have to be dismounted and rebalanced if you are only changing the TPMS sensors. The tire stays in the same position since they only have to break the bead on the face of the wheel to access the sensor. I had mine done for free at Discount Tire (I've done a lot of...
