    I just bought tires and compared Tesla vs Tire Rack vs Local.

    Tesla's price for the same tires is pretty competitive, but they offer no options. To install, balance, etc they wanted $125 for the set of 4. Tire rack estimates $25/tire so thats not far off.

    In the end my local tire shop was cheaper on the tires and included all the install, balance etc stuff.

    I think Tesla only installs what they already sell. You can buy the tires from wherever, but they have to be one of the ones sold by Tesla.
    So they will not install Cinturato P7 Plus, but they will, if you get the MXM4.

    I just got the P7 Plus myself a few weeks ago. So far, I like them. They seem quieter, but I cannot be certain if I remember the exact noise levels of my original MXM4 from three years ago.
