Welcome!Reviving this thread that I started 5 months ago when I lived in California; my wife and I now live in West Vancouver and we are very happy to be there! The summer weather has been fantastic and we’ve been enjoying the many hiking trails that are so close to us. Before moving I installed all weather tires on my Model 3 and have now decided to buy a set of winter tires for my Model X so we can get up into the local mountains for snowshoeing.
My question is; what are the pros and cons of buying just winter tires compared to winter tires on a dedicated set of wheels? I’m leaning towards the latter, as it will be simpler to change one set of wheels for the other, keep my summer wheels from being damaged by twice a year tire swaps, and the storage space required is the same.
Suggestions for winter tires and rims combinations for an X are welcome. The simplest solution, though not the cheapest, seems to be to purchase what Tesla sells at 2015-2020 | Model X 20" Slipstream Wheel and Winter Tire Package
I will search existing threads on this topic. Thank you!
We also went the route of dedicated rims/tyres - makes the whole process easier, and whilst your neighbours are scrabbling around trying to get an appointment to swap things over, you drive out your garage having performed it yourself in minutes
Which part of West Van are you?
