    For anyone looking to buy the latest MS tire for 19" wheels, be warned that there are 3 OEM Goodyear Tires all 245/45/R19 98W and all named "Eagle Touring".

    The latest, which is included with the Ravens as of April 2019, is Eagle Touring Sound Comfort Technology (SCT); product number 102015578, designated as "T1" Sound Comfort Technology., which is printed on the tire, but the product number is not. These are supposed to have low rolling resistance, hence more efficient, and bette grip. They are hard to find but Tire Track has them for $226 each:

    The other is Eagle Touring Sound Comfort Technology (SCT) product number 102851396, designated as "T0" Sound Comfort Technology:

    America's Tire has them as well:

    The third is Eagle Touring T0 without Sound Comfort Technology, product number 102851387:

    America's Tire has those too:

    Goodyear's website has the first 2 with SCT; you'll see the options when you scroll down:

    Here is the none-SCT, with 2 other options though only one is OEM for Tesla:

    Confused yet? Thanks Goodyear. Just look for T1 and you should be ok.

    Better yet, go with Michelin and don't reward bad behavior.

    I also noticed this three sku options for these tires. I am a Michelin person for sure. But, since my car came with these GYETs on it, they perform great here in Florida. People have complained they are noisy in other locations. MY second set were takeoffs from another new S, I could not pass it up at $100 each for those with SCT.

    In between, I had Arachnids on and I will only put those back on here in Florida during the winter for 5000 miles at a time. Rough ride, noisy, energy eaters, expensive to replace the shoe. They look and handle great though. I'm keeping them. With latest update now its easier then ever to go from many rim styles and sizes and have the UI and APP update without going to service and have them do it. Great idea, I love that.

    The last tire you mention in your study is the least expensive of them all as I recall with no SCT. I really wonder how much that foam suppresses sound. I can tell you its a hassle to patch a tire with the foam.
