    Plaid 21” rear tire woes - factory defect?

    Here is the issue as I see it. First Teslas spec on rear toe: 0.05 to 0.35. Second the bushings used are rubber which have massive amounts of flex and movement upon acceleration and toque causing a negative toe out scenario. Third, Tesla aligns and verifies alignment in the medium height...

    Plaid 21” rear tire woes - factory defect?

    What you experienced with that side wall split is a classic out of toe spec result. Most competent shops should be able to put your vehicle on an alignment rack and analyze the current suspension settings.

    Plaid 21” rear tire woes - factory defect?

    You should have an alignment check. I bet your driver side rear toe is out of spec and towed out.

    Plaid 21” rear tire woes - factory defect?

    One way to get more data/info is if those that have had this issue, throw your vehicle on an alignment rack and let’s analyze the numbers. I’ve seen some excessive toe out which would definitely not help with the delaminating. Add to that some excessive negative camber and it gets even more...

    JEBINC's review of new N2itive "tartan" adjustable camber arms for Plaid and MS/MSLR (2021+)

    Did you find both lock lock bolts to be hard to get into a position to torque down ? I know the instructions specially say to place the collar lock down as to avoid any potential spacing issues. Looking forward to hearing what your toe started at. Seems like good advice to set the rear toe to...

    HomeLink Unreliable with Auto-close…???

    Good point. Everyone make sure the sensors on on your garage door rails are adjusted to a height that will break the beam if your car is stopped before fully inside.

    Botched XPEL Stealth ppf installation. What are my options?

    Looks like they used a pre cut template of ppf for your vehicle. Pre cut vs bulk cut leaves those edge gaps. Not sure what happened on the front bumper however.

    Maybe Red Calipers Coming to Plaid?

    My guess is the 2023 will have a ceramic disc brake option that comes with red calipers. The option will be available to current 2021-2022 owners for $20,000 per Tesla.

    Model S Refresh PRND Manual button plastic malfunction

    This is an issue that has nothing to do with UV or heat exposure. It is an issue in manufacturing where the layer that tints/hides these letters isn’t quite correct. According to service this is not an isolated issue and hopefully Tesla HQ will address this with the supplier.
