I think it is alignment and, in the rear, isn't adjustable.I'll take some photos of my tires after 8k miles. I don't think they are wearing unevenly. I wonder if some cars are just not aligned correctly from the factory, or there is a defect in the shoulders of these tires.
Seems uninformed. You have no choice but low on the highway. Also I checked my tires and at 8,000 miles they are not wearing unevenly. I think some cars weren't aligned from the factory or the tire has a defect.Here is my response from Tesla - why do they allow us to use a preset on the car if it shreds tires??
you will have issues if your car is in Low mode, check your tires around 10KSeems uninformed. You have no choice but low on the highway. Also I checked my tires and at 8,000 miles they are not wearing unevenly. I think some cars weren't aligned from the factory or the tire has a defect.
Yeah, I just paid $1,400 today at Discount Tire to replace both back tires...only 10K on the OEM ones.The inside of both of my two front tires on '21 MS LR (with 21" arachnids) were down to the threads. If you do your research as I did you'll unfortunately learn that this is commonplace for this setup... Michelin won't cover uneven treadwear like this in the warranty - as it's obviously a wear/use issue. Tires are warrantied for 30k miles, but you'll get about 20k if you're lucky. Sorry for the bad news. I was out $1000 this week for 2 new pieces of rubber myself...
Yes, mine had at least another 15K of wear left.That is a strange issue. It looks like there is plenty of tread left in the tires.
Mine also seemed to be wearing fairly evenly (visual check). No feathering and no signs until they were too far gone.I'll take some photos of my tires after 8k miles.

Toe. My car came with around +0.20 on both rears. Tesla factory toe arms are non-adjustable, so I had to replace them with aftermarket. Also my road grip is much improved now that my rear toe is at zero, especially accelerating from a standstill.I think there's more to this than just camber.
Just looked at mine which is a 2022 with 11, 361 miles and my rears look nearly identical on the OEM 21s. Very slight wear on the inner edge compared to the outer but nothing Id worry about at this point. I've never gone this long on tires on a model S. My 2013 P85 needed tires every 5-7K miles when I had the OEM 21s and now that I am running 20s (3 of the 4 OEM wheels were leaking air at the valve stems) I can get 8-10K miles running more of a highway tire. My wife drives the 2013 mostly around town. We use the 2022 for most of our roadtrips and at over 11K miles, I'd estimate that 8K are highway, The odometer isnt immediately available in the 2022 so I didnt even realize I had driven this much since getting it and these are the OEM installed PS4s. Will try to post a few pics of mine for reference.Here are some photos of my rear tires from this morning at 8700 miles. If I really look closely, there is a tiny amount of additional wear on the most inside edge of the tire. It's a pretty subtle difference. I can't really imagine that wearing all the way through the tire plies in just a few thousand more miles. I guess the next time I take the tires off, I could photo them with a ruler and see if it is more visible.

I am under the impression that the only difference between the T1 and T2 versions is that the T1 had the well for the bluetooth sensor (but no sensor) and the T2 version actually has the sensor installed.FYI. It looks like there is a T2 version of the tire in stock now with acoustic tech (foam). Hopefully that reduces these failures?
