Is this real?Does anyone who have test the range of 22" wheels?
I don't own an X, but 10-15% range seems to be way too high. The S range difference between the 21 and 19's is typically less rolling resistance from all seasons on the 19's to sticky high performance summer tires on the 21. The X has all seasons on both sizes. They are both SUV/truck tires in a sense in order to handle all that extra weight.
whatever the exact range difference this is true for any car with a variety of wheel and tire sizes.
Car X with 22 wheels style Y with tire size Z of Brand A type B vs
Car X with 20 wheels style L with tire size M of Brand C type D
Tons of variables and US tire manufacturers won't give you rolling resistance data per tire style and size. Heck in the EU they only have to do it by brand/style and can hide the per size differences if they are small enough.
Take a Toyota or Chevy or BMW, doesn't matter. It's all about aerodynamics, unsprung weight, rolling resistance, and such. The physics of the universe don't care what label is on the car.
Yup. The price we pay to have cool looking wheels. Drat. ;-)
I agree.If model x 90D with 22" wheels lost 15% range,it only has 350miles range left.Even 75D driving more 30miles than 90D!
Yup.Tesla is open and transparent.But it's too much we pay to the 22" wheels I think.
Yeah,I agree.But before I choose the configuration.The Tesla official website didn't tell I'll loss so much range.
Wow 10 - 15%. That is a significant hit on the range ... a loss of 25 - 37 miles of the EPA rated range.
What is significant is that people are oblivious of this aspect of 'high-performance' tires.
They sacrifice efficiency in EV and ICE the same.
I think the impact is due to two factors ... The low profile tires and the increased size/weight of the wheels.
I wonder if you use these with summer tires if that would help?

This. Changing tires is easy. Getting a forged wheel that is closer to weight of the cast 19' would probably make up most of the difference.
