My model S 2019 standard range dual motors front tire 245/35r21 has worned down after 15k miles. My back tires are looking ok, 265/35r21.
OEM tires are ContiSportContact 5p. Can I just replace the front tires with another brand? like Yokohama Advan sport which is all season and has thicker treads that might last longer. Any down sides such as noise or performance, safety issues?
I was told by tire shop that traditional all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive cars need to have the same type of tires on all 4. Model S has 2 motors and has no drive train so it might be OK. Anyone that has experience with different tires on front and back?
