    I don't have staggered wheels on my P85, but I was thinking of going back to the 21" wheels (currently running the 19" Aero wheels for range). I noticed on TireRack.com that they have Michelin Pilot Super Sport listed that are for Tesla with "Acoustic Tech". I'm assuming this is the foam liner that they are now putting in the tires. The Continental Sport Contact 5P uses "ContiSilent" technology. I don't know which is quieter, but the Michelins have a slightly better wear rating and are a few dollars more. For me, since I already have the old worn Continentals, I would probably go with the Michelins to try them out (and also get a $70 MasterCard reward card).
