    I received my blue P90D MX this week and love it so far. There is a reported ~10% range penalty going from 20" to 22" wheels. Do you think that there would be further range advantage in going to 19" wheels? Other potential advantages include improvements in noise and ride quality, with the only downsides being a small decrement in cornering performance and subjective appearance (which I wouldn't care much about).

    Unfortunately, I already have some curb rash on the driver's side rear wheel from going through a fast food drive through and not yet being used to the shear bulk of this automobile.

    On a similar topic, I have 19" snows (wheels and tires) from my Model S. Will those 19" tires fit/work on the X? Would be nice to save $3-4K not having to buy new winter tires :)

    I asked the guys at TSportline if their 19's would work for the X, and they said it wouldn't hold the weight for long. I've got 19" gray turbine Rials on my Model S and was tempted to put them on the X. I, too, was wondering if we'd see a range advantage (and if towing were affected).
