Do you know for certain that these will rub? 10.4 inch tire width for the 265/40 versus 10.0 inch tire width for OE 255/35 front tires.

Tire Size Comparison

Yes, there were a few threads about people with this exact tire installed. It's only a slight rub when parking, but even then you're going so slowly that there's no wear/tear on it and just a slight smudge on the plastic of the wheel well on the fronts.

You do you, but I don’t think that kind of rubbing is acceptable for a tire fitment. An occasional rub on strut compression is one thing, but rubbing your fenders in parking lots isn’t great.

Another data point here--the rep at my local tire shop called Michelin directly about the Tesla-specific fitment. Michelin confirmed they are in production, but with no ETA for release.

I think I'll do the 265/35 and 275/35 setup, and replace with the T0 tires as they wear out.

*Edit: FYI, Tire Rack is now showing as backordered to December for the 275/35 non-Tesla fitment. If you need to get these tires for the winter it would be a good idea to lock down a set now.

Anyone have experience running the non TO Michelins All Seasons on the MYP.. Without the additional acoustic foam? Is it much noisier?

I have the non acoustic version. I haven‘t noticed an increase in noise. The ride is a little better and after about 500 miles I would say the range is better as well.

Much better than the P zeros

I have a couple hundred miles on this setup now. The noise is much less intrusive. I couldn't tell you whether the absolute dB level is lower than the Pirellis, but the Pirellis have an unpleasant roar/boominess. The Michelins basically sound like white noise. The ride quality is also far more supple than the Pirellis.

I couldn’t wait for the OEM T0 tires and just went ahead and purchased the 265 & 275 from discount tire direct. Got 10% off and 25% off road hazard.
