    I have my winter wheels and tires and need to take them to a garage to put them on. Has anyone used a central garage with their model 3? Not keen on driving to the suburbs with 4 wheels
    Can I just take 4 hockey pucks to my local ice garage?
    Thanks.

    I don't see why not. That's the only requirement - knowing about the jack pads etc

    Can vouch for CT Carling. I know the SM and he is well aware of how to lift Teslas, just BYO jack pads.

    I have done my winter/summer tire changes done at Meineke on Edgewater Rd in Kanata. Reasonable charge. I know... they're not central. But they know how to change Tesla M3 tires, and where the jack points are. Make sure you tell them it's for a Tesla when you book.

    Costco Kanata has a set of pucks and knows Telsa. Not central but right off the 417!
