Looks like Hankook Ventus V12’s. Nice rims as well. I like them.
Yes staggered, here is the setup.
HRE FlowForm FF01 Wheel Package for 2018 Tesla Model 3

255/30/20 275/30/20 Hankook Ventus
Confirm that they installed everything properly. Besides messing up the install, and then installing it too low, they missed a rear rubber isolator on my install.
Ok, will do. I'm going to go back and raise it back up to just about .25 - .5 inches under stock height as I need the clearance on the streets.
I am very happy with my new Comfort Coilovers from Mountain Pass Performance and KW. VERY happy. The car is definitely more comfortable and better handling than stock.
They were installed yesterday at West End Alignment in Gardena, CA, which I also highly recommend. Chris is fanatical, meticulous, prompt, and communicative.
The vibrations coming into the cabin are reduced. “Muted” is the word that immediately came to mind. “Muffled“ may apply. I was aiming at road defects and smiling.
It is quieter. Sound is vibration, so less vibration means less noise in the cabin. I never heard anyone say that. It was a surprise to me.
It clearly corners much better, with less body roll. Clearly. More smiles. The flatter cornering adds to the comfort as well as the excitement. I don’t know why MPP doesn’t claim this. There must be ways to measure it so they can. If there’s no app for that, how about a bowl of water on the floor, and measure the spill?
Of course it looks better. It looks right. My installer agreed with the MPP height recommendation. Mine are set a few mm above the MPP recommendation to allow for slight settling.
The stock setup was annoying. Now my M3P rides like the German cars I am used to. The only downside besides the time and money is that I will probably wear out my tires faster now that it corners better.
If you have any nice photos of your car, we would love to add it to our customer's builds/testimonials section. Glad to hear you love your car even more than before, that's our goal!
Any body from Minneapolis area, installed this, willing to provide a test ride ?
How low do you have yours set at?
So you have the Dual Motor Performance version correct? With the stock 20 inch wheels? It sounds like you experience the car as somewhat better isolated in terms of the small grain and harshness of the road? How about over larger impacts? I'm toying with the idea of getting the Comfort coilovers for my wife's car. I have the sports coilovers on mine which I love, but that's overkill for her. Getting better ride and handling if that's possible while fixing the ride height issue seems worth it. Do you have any pictures that you would feel comfortable posting? Thanks in advance!
Anyone in the Bay Area willing to give a test ride on the comfort or sports?
@BYE FSL Does the car also dip and dive less on hard braking/accelerating with the MPP comforts?
Does ride height also affect how stiff they are or is that constant?
The ride height doesn't affect the ride unless you are at the extremes of adjustment
Anyone interested on a brand new never been installed still in the box KW variant 3 for a RWD? Pm me if interest pick up only in the SF Bay Area. Part # 35287006.
Sorry, I have no input on that for you. I didn’t notice dipping and diving prior. However, since there is less side roll, I would guess there is less to and fro movement also, since it is governed by the same mechanism, no?
There is definitely less dive with the sports coilovers, but I suspect there's somewhat less with the Comfort coilovers too. The big difference is the shocks are not adjustable, and the spring rate is a little firmer on the sports coilovers. But a lot of brake dive resistance is actually coming from the shocks and not just the springs.
