I don't get it. Every wheel/tire choice is some sort of compromise in the end when driving on the street. My MY is a street car, not a race car. If I am exceeding the pretty high limits of the stock tires on the street, I am likely driving way too fast for the street.The looks. So many people are into the big wheels/thin tires these days.
On the skidpad the MYP was .94g and the MYLR .88. The MYLR specs are right in line with the BMW 330xi for lateral acceleration which has been a benchmark car in its class for a long time. If you move up to the M3, it crushes both the MYP and MYLR with over a 1g. If was tracking the car all the time (not the ideal car for that and the M3P would be better anyway), I'd get a dedicated set of wheels/tires for the track.
I am not going to notice much of a difference in the lateral acceleration capability on most roads between the LR and P. Those big heavy wheels sure look cool on the P for most people. Too many tradeoffs for me in every area; heavy, worse ride quality, easier to curb, easier to get pinch flats, fewer tire choices, terrible in cold weathe,r and more expensive tire choices to name a few. If you live where the weather ever gets below 50F, you'll need another set of tires at a minimum. I get what Tesla was trying to do with the MYP, they definitely could have executed better on the wheel/tire combo.
