    I have a brand new set of 21” turbine wheels for Model S with winter tires. Never put on the car, bought from Tesla and kept in garage. Current price is $6k in the Tesla store. I’ll let them go for $3.5k plus shipping, or best offer.

    Hi,
    I'm not sure if the tires on the package are "winter tires" as you mentioned. To my knowledge, there are NO winter tires for the 21" rims. If I'm mistaken then please let me know and I will switch out the tireson both my MS 100D and P100D to "winter tires".
    Thanks 20180527_101000.jpg 20180527_101056.jpg

    My set has Pirelli Soto Zero 245/35 R21 W winter tires. I purchased it from Tesla with my Model S — this is something Tesla used to do, sell you a set of winter wheels and tires with your new car. Now I am trading in the Model S for Model X so don’t need them, in fact I never needed them, they are totally unused. Amit, your point is valid that the Tesla gear store online doesn’t CURRENTLY offer winter tires, but your sacrcasm implies you thought my set wasn’t as I had described, and there you are just wrong. See attached photos.

    Good to know, no sarcasm intended. The link in your post takes one to the Tesla page showing Conitentals, hence the misunderstanding on my part, and my 100D MS came with Continentals while my MS P100D had Michelins, all summer tires only. Now I know I can get a set of 21" tires for winter driving. Pirelli webpage shows winter tires in only 245/35/21 and none in the 265/35/21, my cars have the staggered set so back to square one in the search for staggered winter 21" tires Always learning something new. Thanks.

    Great tires - at least the 19s are good in CO snow. Personally prefer the extra wall on winters - not because of the tread (same) but because of the things you don't see in the snow.

    Great wheels and tires though.

    Yes, they are still available, and ready to ship this week if you need them! I procrastinated very long on responding to this thread, sorry.

    i found the solution

    we have a very good tire place here in santa monica CA.....stokes tire

    you are right that there is no 265 for the pirelli which would be the perfect fit on the rear, but they do make a 275 which is only 3/8" wider and works

    i just tested on a very aggressive and precarious trip from LA to big bear and back over two mountain passes in deep snow and they were amazing in all ways. I need to emphasize that there were Range Rovers, suburbans, busses and pickups in ditches and i was moving up and down this 6% grade in 4" of hardpack snow and ice like a Caterpillar...a very fast caterpillar.

    recap:

    Pirelli Sottozero 3 - 245 35R21 for the front
    Pirelli Sottozero 3 - 275 35R21 for the rear

    dont let them tell you that the 275 doesnt fit....its tight....but good things are.

    Thanks for your interest to everyone who responded. The tires that were originally for sale in this thread are no longer available. Sold to one of the respondents in the thread back in 2018.
