Torque is 130 ft-lb. That number is more common on trucks and SUVs than cars. Show them how to put it in jack mode before putting it on the lift of you have air suspension. That's about it.
This. I've had good experiences with my local Firestone and my S goes there now like my other cars. I showed them the torque and how to engage jack mode and the provide me trouble-free and upcharge-free lifetime alignment.
Checklist for non Tesla shops doing tire work:
1. Alert mechanic about Jack mode/specific jack points/must use puck on stand - do not let them apply lift to battery pack. Hand lift only.
2. Do not use impact wrench as it will damage factory bolts
3. Remove rotor retention bolt of not factory wheels
4. TPMS is location specific. If rotating, they must be re-synced in new locations. If new, Tesla must sync the new sensors with the car.
5. Torque nuts to 130 ft. lbs.
Am I missing anything else?
After about 70 days from order to delivery, I should finally be picking up my MS this weekend. I ordered wheels from Jason and tires from Tire Rack, which were delivered to a local Firestone. Any reason not to let them do the mounting, balancing, etc?
I went to the Belmar (Lakewood) Firestone a couple of months ago for tire rotation. They did fine (I watched) and even had the correct torque numbers in their computer.I'm in metro Denver so please report back with which location you use and your opinion of their service, thanks!
