What exactly does this get you, what does it cost and is it worth it?
Thanks in advance
I ordered my car when they had just switched over to the Michelin. When my car arrived it came with Goodyears though. I drove about 800 miles on the Goodyears before Tesla finally replaced them with the Michelins. Can't say I noticed much of a difference. Right now I have about 37,000 miles on the Michelin. Will replace them around 40,000-45,000 miles. They have been great. Even drove them in the winter last year and they did fine but plan on getting winter tires this year.
They keep showing up on CPO cars and I was wondering what all the fuss was over.
Thanks for the info.
Actually I think that was true only for the 60s, and Michelin primacy was standard on the 85 (at least that's the way it was when I ordered my 60).Goodyear's used to be standard 19" OEM and Michelin Primacies' used to be a $1000 upgrade option. Now the Michelin's are standard. That's why on older cars you'll see it explicitly listed as an upgrade.
TexasEV is correct. Early cars with 19" wheels only got Goodyear Eagle tires. There was no other choice. Later in 2013, the 85kWh got the Primacy tire upgrade free, and it was optional for the 60kWh cars. Later, all cars go the Primacy as there were no more option for the Goodyears.
My car came with the Goodyear tires. I replaced them with the Michelin Primacy tires. My opinion is the Michelin tires are WAY better. Worth paying almost twice as much for them? Yes.
You don't say where in USA you are.. I respect your privacy but can we find out how much winter snow and ice you get ? I'm really tempted to run the Primacy's through our Toronto winter at least this one time. With my D model I am hoping it could work out OK, at least this one season while I recalibrate my finances :crying:... I have about 37,000 miles on the Michelin.

37,000 miles is a good range that you got...I had Michelin's on mine and the tire wore out at 27,000 miles... I have now Pirelli Cinturato all season plus and I love them.
@TomServo: I love Michelin and I think the cars come standard with it now...I tried design studio and I don't see any options for michelin primacy upgrade which was there when I placed my deposit
I read a clip from Tesla somewhere (JB?) that Primacy tires were the lowest rolling resistance oem for Tesla model S.

So I'm getting close, perhaps done in terms of my 19" Primacy tires. 25k miles, but the right rear just got a small puncture wound from a staple in the sidewall and it's leaking air. Just got the low tire pressure warning and had to put some air in it. SC picking it up Friday for its 25k service anyway so they're going to look into it. Some questions for those who have replaced their tires...
1. What's your recommendation for tires? I'd much prefer 40k or more miles on a set of tires and am OK with trading off a little range or noise (the car's so quiet anyway). But I also don't want to spend a ridiculous amount on a set of tires. Would love some opinions. Lifetime wh/mi is 334. So I guess I'm a little high.
2. Have you had the SC put the tires on for you? How did that work? I was thinking of ordering off Tire Rack.com and having them shipped to the SC. They'll get my car for a week since I'm on vacation next week so there's plenty of time to do the work.
