Model S 21" Winter Wheels/Tires

Hello. Back in October, I ordered the winter 21" wheel/tire package from Tesla. The delivery/installation has now been bumped twice and currently sits at Dec 19. Has anyone ordered and received the 21" package? I'm starting to worry that they'll never arrive and as I live in the Colorado mountains, rolling around on my summer tires is not ideal.

I haven't been able to find the 21" tires elsewhere that would match the current staggered setup. I found a set of Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3 at Discount Tire but they're 245 front, 265 rear instead of Tesla's set up which is 265 front and 295 rear.

Any input/advice would be much appreciated.
 
In general I thought thicker sidewalls (smaller rims) would be better for snow tires but don't remember if studded or not majes a difference. But tesla isn't "in general" all the time so I don't know.

Can you find 19s? Maybe it's a blessing in disguise that you can't get the 21s

I had ordered in August, and after 4 different pushes on delivery I had to give up and order a 20" winter wheel and tire package elsewhere (Vredestein Wintrac Pro tires). I would have preferred the OEM staggered setup but couldn't wait any longer.

The last straw for me was I was told Nov 11 would be "pretty accurate as far as getting the parts" and the day before it was pushed. I hate to sound pessimistic but I doubt the Dec date holds. There was someone here that ordered the winter setup in Sept '21 and didn't receive until April or so '22... So, well after the winter.

I don't live up where you are, of course, but I've been happy with the performance of the Wintracs during the last snow right after TGiving we had down here. I thought I'd miss out using a 255 square setup and while they definitely don't handle like the summers, they've been solid when I've been enjoying the drier days and some speed.
