    Curious if any new P85D owners are getting non-staggered tires for 21" Seems like there was an earlier thread saying Tesla dropped the staggered tires for 21"

    I'm curious to hear if they went with the front wheel width all around or the back. I'm guessing the front, but haven't seen any confirmation. I saw the tire width posted but not the wheel.
    Was surprised that they dropped the ps 2's on the D.

    the 21" option for the P85D is only a staggered set, unless you opt for the winter wheel 21" package

    Tesla has had some supply problems and are putting staggered PS2 wheel/tire sets on the due bill and delivering square Continental configurations.

    Hmm. So no permanent change? When the initial post was made about this I went back and looked at the specs and order page and saw all mention of staggered setup and tire type had been removed. Was mostly curious from the viewpoint of what I'll end up doing when my first set wear out, and seeing what Tesla came up with as still suggested for the D.

    For me, thinking new forged 20" wheels and whatever tire seems top at the time (pss and the all season version currently hold my attention, though lower road noise options with similar performance and wear would certainly be of interest). Hopefully it'll be a while before I have to start getting serious about looking.

    Should have my P85D Tuesday so I'll post after I see the car.

    My P85D delivered a week ago came with staggered 21" wheels.

    I am test driving a P85D this Monday and am leaning toward the 21" wheels. On a different note, has anyone observed any discernible decrease in range with the staggered set?

    Just to finish what I started, my P85D did NOT come with staggered tires. I was told they changed it.

    That would suck if my car came without staggered wheels. The handling is SO MUCH better than those little skinny 245's in the back. Better stability and performance > a couple miles range. After all, its the PERFORMANCE version- why not get the performance wheel/tire setup?
