    Looking to buy the rear tyres 285/35/22.
    My local tire shop offers 2 different Pirelli Scorp ZERO but they cant tell the difference from their system. One markt only TO and one marked Tesla, should there be any difference or are they acctualy the same? I guess they contain the noise canceling foam. Looking for the quietest tire they have.

    TO is the OE Key for tires specifically designed for Tesla at Continental. I´d imagine the TO code has the same meaning at Pirelli.
    Fun fact: Early Model S was delivered wit 21" with MGT OE key, which is the code for Maserati.

    The Pirelli Scorpions are pretty terrible in bad weather, specifically snow. I know they say all-season, but they are not.
    Avoid them if you can

    Original equipment.
    If you change out for winter tires then disregard my comment :) They are great in great conditions.

    If it says something like "Pirelli noise acoustic" thats what it is. It matters because of foam inside to prevent road noise.
