    Thanks for the info guys, I called the SC in Paramus NJ and they quoted me $68/tire for mount and balance. I'm sure it would be less elsewhere lol.

    so what is the consensus/final word?
    Michelin Pilot Super Sport on the rear . 225/45 ZR 17?
    Yokohama Advan A052’s ?
    AD07s AD08s?

    are the Toyo Proxes T1R only for 2.5's?

    and other pearl....Only Jack with pads, no lift, and put fear of god/Elon over the head of tire folks just for safety :)
    Hey what about the TPMS...do folks have good luck with those being addressed by local not tesla service center? Thats another confusing thread.....though I see a new updated thread has started so maybe I just need patience and illumination will come ( i do get that 1.5 has different issues than 2.+_)

    Since I occasionally drive in the winter I have the Continental Extereem Sport DWS. They work well. On the 1.5 TPMS is much better as you can just replace the bad unit. Then drive 21 miles to synchronize. No special tools.

    Unfortunately the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is no longer available for the size. I couldn't find them anywhere, even online. So I went with the stock Yokohama AD07s on the rear.

    I'm getting them mounted at a local shop for $35/tire. I insisted on a floor jack and no lift.
