    I am planning on buying a new set of wheels/tires from a private party here and was curious from the experience of others what it runs to have Tesla to take off my tires/wheels and install new ones. Or does it makes sense to have a tire shop do it instead? Thanks in advance.

    Tesla will only work with Tesla-branded wheels. If you're getting wheels from any other manufacturer, you'll have to go to a tire/wheel shop.

    The cost varies depending on what all needs to be done. Mounting the tires, installing TPMS, balancing the wheels, mounting the wheels, etc. all add costs.

    I got a ready-to-go wheel set from T Sportline and my local Firestone charger $60 to mount them on the car.
