    Looking to get
    Pirelli
    Cinturato P7 AS Plus

    What experience ya'll got at either of these places. I would rather do Costco but they don't carry the tires.

    I always go to Americas Tire even though I am a Costco member.

    Thanks.

    Big O Tires was selling these for $226 and America Tire had them for $240. I called America Tire and they were willing to beat the price and offer me $220 on these tires.

    I'll be having them do the installation.

    The 2015 Model S 70D came originally with Michelin Primacy MXM (I think). It was quite as first but been a bit noisy as of late. Still very good thread according to the last service a month ago. 37k Miles with them.

    In reading all the feedback from here and Tire Rack and on Tesla Forum, I decided to go with these Pirelli CinTurato P7 AS Plus. On Tire Rack, they are rated higher than Michelin and Bridgestone Serenity (had these previously on my Lexus - Very Quiet and loved them)

    So I decided to give them a shot. Most of the negative feedback people say where about them were on the RWD model of MS. I hope AWD would solve that.

    I've been using Americas tires for over a decade and they are the best

    America's tire AKA Discount tire is by far the very best... match prices and customer service is the best in the industry

    I got a price at Big O Tires for 226.99. America's Tire was $239.00. They did a price match beat and gave me $220.00 on these tires.

    Got them installed two days ago. Put over 200 miles on them. Very quite and much better then the Primacy MXM stock i had.
