    Wife got a flat today which got patched but treads are looking surprisingly low at 16k. Might have to replace all 4 if not at least 2.

    Anyone have experience with the 20" Michelin Premier LTX on their model X? How's the road noise? Looking for alternatives to the Conti's.

    Thanks

    TeslaBjorn in Norway just posted a video about tires:

    It sounds like in Norway the Model X comes with Michelins, which he says wear out too fast.

    I had it on my RAV4 EV, loved them, but I don't think they are as sporty

    I just put on Pirelli Scorpion Verde plus tires. Replacing all 4 at Discount Tire was about $800 ($179 per tire plus installation). Road noise seem same as contisilent, have not seen significant range reduction (so far 5% if any), handling and acceleration seem similar (but I have a 60d so not uncorked). Overall I don’t think these are performance tires but I hope they work well enough for my wife and last longer than the 20k miles of our original tires.

    I had a set of Michelin Premier LTX on my wife’s old Q7. They were decent overall and got about 30k miles out of them. Q7 is likely a bit lighter than the MX though.

    I went with Continental DWS06 based on recommendations from others and so far so good
