    Model S existing inventory and pricing

    Interest rates and most are nervous about the economy is my guess...Fed doing what they can to slow down demand for everything. Good times.

    future option to buy 21 inch Arachnid if initially ordering 19 inch Tempest?

    Zero reason to buy them new from Tesla. Plenty of people purchased them new with the car and regret it and sell them almost immediately. I'd just buy a lightly used or takeoff set for far less.

    2022 Model S Winter Tire Question

    I am in Colorado and while yes it was a PITA to find some wheels/tires. Discount Tire took care of me as they always do. The wheels had to be ordered but were here in less than a week. Just go in and talk to them. Feel free to send me a PM if you want more details. I have posted my set up in...

    Make sure they are reviewing it as a Model S refresh. Have had some do comparisons setups for old S. I’m not sure I’ve seen anyone run an 18” wheel on the refresh. I’d be concerned it will clear the brakes. Do not count on Tesla delivering you a winter set. I ordered in stock in August and...

    2022 Model S Winter Tire Question

    Xice is a great tire. You will not be disappointed. Road noise seems the same. If this was a more dedicated winter driving car I would have opted for xice but have the BMW for the heavier days. Nokian R3s here. Also a great tire.

    Thanks. I won’t be tracking it at all but guessing it will be a negligible loss if any

    Wheels/tires are mounted. Overall I’m happy with how it looks. Way better than the tempest wheel. Have 5 miles on them so hopefully things go well

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Cannot believe you're still waiting. This reinforces my opinion of one and done with Tesla. Unless Major changes occur. I just wasted nearly 3 months waiting on the winter tempest setup that Tesla false advertised as in stock. Took my money in August and never delivered. I cancelled last...

    2022 Model S Winter Tire Question

    Correct options are extremely limited for this car. It sucks. This is what I am doing through Discount. If all goes well, they will be mounted tomorrow. Going to run a staggered setup (I know it's not advisable with winter tires and narrow tires are better) but this car will rarely see snow...

    Did you try Discount tire? When I went a few weeks ago they were able to get in the Pirelli tires and the Vredestein wintrac pros. I'd just go in and talk to them.

    Keep us posted if you remember on how the car behaves after the tire swap. I have seen some mixed reviews when you get slightly away from OEM and the computers get a bit finnicky... Really hoping you and I do not have any issues. My overall diameter will be about .3" larger with my setup...

    I just got back from placing an order at Discount. Going to run a staggered setup (I know it's not advisable with winter tires and narrow tires are better) but this car will rarely see snow and when it does it will be very light. Mountain trips and deep snow will be handled by the snow tire...

    They know me by now even though there is a revolving door of managers and workers but I go in pretty often and I make it a habit to speak to the GM and the employees and remind them of all the issues I've had. I do this not to be annoying and an ass but to politely remind them to be careful and...

    Zero help at the service center as expected. no problem-solving skills at all with this company. I have no choice but to get a refund. Another disappointment as an owner.

    Problem is I purchased the entire "package" from Tesla and they refuse to use their problem-solving skills to address the situation. I am actually going to try and swing by the service center today and speak with someone in person. If I cannot get a resolution, I am returning the entire thing...

    Yeah they just pushed me out another month to Mid November. I asked the service center to sell me the wheels and tpms and I will find my own tires but shocker, nobody has gotten back to me. I am going to swing by the service center sometime in the next week or so and see what I can accomplish...

    Mileage on MSLR

    Worry less? There is a warranty in place and IMO it only matters as you get closer to that warranty expiring. I personally have never tracked the mileage closely. We charge to 80% and have never gone below 42% in a single day. Plugged in every night. One day I drove about 50 highway miles...

    No, Not yet. I want the set and I am still holding out a little hope they will deliver it. I have been going back and forth with the service center that is supposed to be receiving them. They have the wheels and TPMS but no tires. Today they suggested I "go look at third party options if I'd...

    Still waiting for these snow tires to arrive. Really irritated with the lack of service that TESLA has as a whole. Pretty shady charging me full price for a product they advertised in stock and months later I am still waiting. I am about to dispute it with my CC Company. If anyone has any...

    Tesla is Peaking in Q3 '22

    I do not disagree with anything you're saying. These are some of the very reasons I love our Tesla. I am a first-time owner. The experience you have had is for sure an outlier having no issues in 250K miles. I hope I am as lucky as you. I can't even get a set of Snow Tires delivered by...

    Tesla is Peaking in Q3 '22

    My opinion based on nothing than my observations, but my gut says that Tesla deliveries will peak in Q3 '22 but 2022 will still set a new record Year end total delivered. 2023 will be a declining year which I attribute to overall economy deteriorating, more competition and biggest of all the...

    I have been in communication with the service center. I had originally set my appointment for about 3 weeks after ordering. They contacted me yesterday and said the tires were not in and pushed me out to the third week of October when they "estimate" the tires to be in. My gripe is the...

    I wanted simplicity, the OEM + low cost is hard to beat. I guess price doesn't matter if it never shows up though. Please post the options from TireRack. I am all ears. Wheels/Tires are extremely hard to find for these cars. I love the stance/size improvements they did with the refresh...

    Just an FYI for those that have talked about winter wheels in here... I would not recommend purchasing Tesla's wheel packages. They say they are in stock (not currently) but yet nothing ships.

    Winter tire recommendations

    It will feel different for sure. Primarily due to the softer compound of the rubber. Unless you go with a more performance-based winter tire like the Pirelli Scorpion or the Michelin Pilot Aplin PA4 (My all-time favorite winter tire). These drive closer to a performance all-season tire but...

    Has anyone received the refresh Model S Winter Wheel and Tire Package from Tesla?

    You may try ordering through the app on your phone. That is what I needed to do to complete my order. I ordered about 2 weeks ago. I am worried these will never show up in time for winter with the way Tesla operates so I'd order with Caution there. I was charged and still no indication...

    X-Ice is a great tire and would be my first choice of the two. I do not have any firsthand experience with the Pirellis. More than likely it will be a slightly sportier tire hence the lighter snow comments. Depending on how much snow and ice you drive and what the price comparison is would...

    Been a minute since I checked out the inventory page. This is new to see. 10 LR in or headed to inventory? How is this even possible when there are people still waiting nearly a year for delivery of a car? Perhaps more people are cancelling or rejecting VINs at delivery? Economy/rates...

    This is one of my bigger fears these days as an owner now. Seems like these failures are somewhat rare but there also seems to be no rhyme or reason when or how they fail. If Tesla could be more consistent(quicker) with repairs and service it would be less scary, but I have seen some waiting a...

    I purchased the tempest setup from Tesla. I am sort of regretting that choice though, I am afraid Tesla is going to drag their feet on sending the wheels and tires. Giving me PTSD from my wait for the actual car. ugh.

    When service was out to fix a few things from delivery I had him take a look at mine. He put some double-sided tape on the side that was loose and would not snap together. that seemed to fixed 99% of my rattle. Not sure how long it will last but so far so good. 2 months in and I have never...

    agreed completely. The Yoke is a non issue, the turn signals are memorized but the Horn, it is terrible. I have yet to even press it. I have wanted to many times but by the time I find it the infraction that warranted the horn use is long gone. I hate it.

    agree with your points on the staggered setup and wide tires. I still think they will perform well and at least it will look pretty good. Again, the value is unmatched as well. Unless you're willing to shell out 5-7K+ on a winter setup your options are very limited. In hindsight I wish I...
