22s - What PSI do you run?


Oct 27, 2019
For all your running the stock 22 inch rims, what PSI do you run your tires at?

I've read higher PSI numbers can lower the rolling resistance which in turn and increase range...

Have you noticed any impacts to your range based upon your tire PSI rating?

I keep the PSI to 43. I believe that's the suggested inflation, although I'll admit I haven't referred to the specifications. Tesla vehicles typically run tire inflation levels higher than ICE vehicles, from my experience. I cannot comment on range. I bought my vehicle with the 20" wheels and then upgraded to 22". Although there is talk of a range penalty, I haven't tested this. Nor have I found the 22" wheels to offer a harsher ride than the 20". I'm sure they do, but I cannot say I have experienced or noticed a difference.

Run what the door pillar says. Otherwise you may be trading range or ride for tire wear, handling, and a potential failure by having a smaller section of the tire in contact with the ground.
