The service center has received my 19" wheels and they also told me that Continental Pro Contact are the A/S tires Tesla will be using. We have only seen the Pirelli summer-ish tires on delivered vehicles, but I chatting with @omarsultan elsewhere and happened across the fact that Tire Rack now shows the actual Tesla OEM All Season tires on their site:

Thanks for the info. Next up I assume Tesla will be offering a winter wheel and tire package. I have the 19s with the summer tires so will need to decide which way to go as I don't want to park the car all winter. About 3 months until snow time....

Curious on the cost for the wheels? Or did you order a wheel and tire package? Did you have to go to the service center to order them as I do not see them available online? I would also like to get a set of 19”s before the fall.

So, if you want to go this route, the part naming is confusing. The rims themselves are called Caredeno, the wheel cover is called Tempest. If you ask Parts for Tempest wheels (as they are referenced in the configurator), you will end up with the 19" wheels from the prior version Model S (ask me how I know this).

Anyway, here are all the part numbers:

WHEEL, 19X9.5J ET40, CARDENIO, FRONT, 1718616-00-A, $745
WHEEL, 19X10.5J ET40, CARDENIO, REAR, 1718617-00-A, $745
19 INCH TEMPEST CAP DARK, 1486286-01-A, $30
TPMS Wheel Unit, BLE, Black, 1490701-01-B, $75
NUT, BLACK VALVE, TESLA TPMS, 1518499-01-A, $0.50

Even more confusingly, Tesla themselves refers to the 19" wheels as Tempest on their Model S order page..

Are the Tempest wheel covers the same as the ones on the pre-refresh Raven cars, other than the dark color?
IIRC the Tempest wheels look quite different than the Cardenio wheels with the covers removed.

Wheels are $745 a pop, regardless of size. In adding to the rims, you need to order a TPMS module ($75) and a valve stem cover ($0.50 IIRC).
Wait so even the new 21" arachnids are $745 each? That would be a total of $2980. If you add a set of PS4S tires in the OEM size, which the EPC site shows at $350 each ($1400 for set of 4), that's $4380 total.

Which is a little *less* than what Tesla charges for the 21" wheels if ordering a new Model S with that configuration.. so you pay $120 more to get them with the car, AND you don't get to keep a set of 19" rims + tires (likely worth about the same amount).

Nuts!!

I believe so. The Cardenio wheels have the crab claw look going. TBH, they look better in person than they do in pics.

You probably have to add in $300 or so for TPMS also.

They look much better in person. Took the caps off. Do not have the center caps as I switched the wheels out to the arachnids shortly after the pic was taken.

Hi, I have the 19s that came with my MS Plaid, with the summer Pirelli's. It is obviously a lot cheaper for me to buy 4 all season tires and have them swapped for the Pirelli's onto my 19 rims, and then reverse that in the spring. Is there a disadvantage to doing that? I guess it takes longer than just putting a completely new set of wheels on. Is the extra wear the rims get swapping the tires around material?

I've never done a tire swap on a Tesla. Should I use the Tesla SC to do it? I assume so, rather than some other local tire place?

Theoretically, that is doable. I think the concern would be damage to the tire bead in taking the tire on or off, so make sure you find someone careful/competent to do the swap. I have never actually done this IRL, so maybe others with experience can weigh in.

Small note here: I decided to go for Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 from Discount Tire (#89328,#89346) as they have a pretty solid reputation here in the forums. I did have to call it in however as the website requires you match your tires with what *they* think is the correct wheel set for the 2021 MS 19" (and they are wrong because they don't have different sizes for front and back).

Seems like those tires are top-of-the-line when it comes to reviews though, so might be worth a consideration compared to the continentals

I went that route too--was going to put them on the car this weekend to play around (still about six weeks before I really start to need them), but my trusty torque wrench of 20+ years finally gave up the ghost, so waiting for the new one to show up.

I just ordered the 19‘s as well. The total was $4750 for everything installed on the Tesla. I am still getting some quotes on the tires from My local store before I decide if I use them to assemble / install.
