    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    My expectations for these tires are to last 1 year or 30K miles, or roughly 5 cycles of 6K mile tire rotations. If that happens as planned, then once again I will get a credit for the remaining miles on the 45K mile warranty to apply to my next set of Kumhos, which will then be ~$400 for the...

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    In terms of efficiency, last year's Goodyears were at 348 Watt hour/mile. The new Kumhos are at 356, but I suspect by next year, with more mixed spring/summer driving, the Kumhos will average about the same as Goodyears.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    So far I've driven a little over 1000 miles. Observations: - Even though the spec sheet said tire depth is 11/32, it's actually only 9/32 brand new - Traction has been great in the rain last few days, but I didn't really push the tires to test its limits - Tires are very quiet. Road noise is...

    It took 2 weeks for tires to be delivered, so plan for that if you need them soon.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    When my Goodyears were at 4/32, I went in to the local Discount Tire to place the order for the set. My Goodyears had 30K miles on it, and with a 45K mile warranty, Discount Tires gave me $330 credit towards the Kumhos. The total price of 4 Kumhos + mounting fees after credits, was $301.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    The Kumho Solus Majesty 9 are your standard all season tires for big sedans and minivans. Silica-reinforced for wet traction, 45K mile warranty. Seemed perfect for a heavy EV like the Model S that eats tires every 30K miles.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    This year I came across the Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91 on Discount tires. $126 per tire, which is less than 1/2 the price of Michelin CC2s, 30% less than Goodyears. I figured I try them out. Even if they were total crap tires and I needed a new set in 6 months or so, I still come ahead...

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    Basically, every year I need new tires, so I've settled on new tires every October at the beginning of the rain season.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    The last 2 years I've run Goodyear EXHILARATE and RS-A2. I've noticed that no matter which tires, with regular 6000 mile rotations, I can only get 30K miles out of a set.

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    Being in Seattle, we get a fair amount of rain starting in mid September, then dries out in late May. We get maybe one big snow storm a year in the low lands, and I avoid driving those days if at all possible. We don't ski or snowboard, so I was shopping for just regular all season tires...

    Kumho Solus Majesty 9 TA91

    I drive a 2014 Model S for Lyft in the Seattle area. I drive about 150 miles per day, 30K miles a year, mainly take passengers to work, school, hospital, or airport. None of my driving is performance based. My S is currently at 191,685 miles.

    Import 2014 Model S

    Hi. I'm investigating the feasibility of importing our 2014 Model S to Taiwan. Reason is, it has unlimited super charging and some sentimental value. AFAIK, there is an car age limit of 10 for imports. Does anyone have experience importing a Tesla from the US, and if so, does the premium...

    Review of 19” Goodyear Exhilarate UHP All Season Tires

    Just finished talking to a tire shop. They have my S (with existing Exhilarate tires) after an accident repair. They said that the Goodyear Eagle Exhilarate is not designed to handle the weight and acceleration of EVs, in particular Tesla cars. They recommend the Eagle Touring T1 instead...

    Worth to wait for Y versus 3 now?

    Should u trade in the blackberry for the current iPhone or wait for the next iPhone? What's the value to u of living the Tesla lifestyle for an additional 2 years? For me, it's a clear no, and we have a 3. A lot depends on ur financial situation.

    Used Tesla Model S Prices Show Signs of Weakness

    Used S prices dropping as cars age. Shocking! Last time I checked my old ICE cars had lost value too.

    Mercedes C300 or Model 3 for Son?

    What's the daily driving range that he needs? There are much cheaper EV alternatives. Otherwise the M3 is a fabulous car.

    Heart vs Head (S vs 3)

    In a word, yes. The review camera helps u backup into spots. I typically look for wider spots away from the crowd. On road trips the extra size is actually a big plus. Don't forget free supercharging with a referral code. Have u considered a used or inventory S?

    Safe SF Parking?

    PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You We parked here last time we were in SF and stayed at the Argonaut by the wharf. The parking is underground so it's safe, and the charge point chargers r free. $46 a night, or $75 valet.

    Static/crackling on some random slacker songs.

    I've experienced this too. It was a podcast that had static. Once I switched songs it went away.
