My prior ride is a 2008 Acura RDX with Nokian WRG4's and they seem similar but the SH-AWD seems more conservative with its limits.
Love the TSportline.

SH-AWD is mostly FWD until you are on curves (my family has had two MDX SH-AWD). I got it stuck on a little snow once bc it couldn't actually power the rears with enough torque. The Model Y is a lot more capable in snow. Enjoy!

According to TireRack, an 18"x8 rim and Blizzak 245/55R18 package will work on the Model Y. I tried to order it but the Blizzaks were not available in my area apparently.

Odd...I'm putting in a 2020 Model y long range on tire rack, with 18" diameter wheels and black rhino doesn't show up. Did you see the black rhino boxers on tire rack or are you just saying you see other 18"x8 rims from other manufacturers there?

Sorry to hear you are having issues. I did get mine through
Les Schwab Tires -
18x8 5-4.5 Black Rhino Boxer and
235/55R - 18 Blizzak DM-V2.

Good luck, Hope you post images when done, Thanks.

Thanks for the info. Actually since I'm in Boise and we don't get much heavy snow, I think I'm going to use my current 19" geminis for winter wheels and get a set of 19x8.5" replika r241s for my summer tires.

Looks great! Re "18x8 5-4.5 Black Rhino Boxer", are you sure your rims are 18x8 and not 18x8.5? Either way, I wonder if these would work on the performance upgrade Y?

Preferred the -1 profile due to ~5 miles of dirt / rough roads each way to our house.

For our MY LR, we did MSW Type 77's with Blizzak LM32s. 18" All good so far including a few quite snowy days and now packed snow on the roads.

Had my first snowfall and have Michelin PA4 tires...

I found they performed terribly.. it seems they are not good in deeper snow conditions.

How deep was the snow and was it wet?

Probably 10-15cm.. it was sticky but not overly wet. The car was sliding everywhere..

The installer in town indicated these tires weren’t very good in snow and recommended the Nokian Hakkapeliitta... I guess he knew what he was talking about!
