    My understanding (tirerack and others) is that these won't be available until November or later.

    Also, I sent an email to [email protected] asking that they evaluate these and give us an official Tesla report on them as they are the only non-summer tires (AFAIK) that are available for the 21" OEM wheels of the Model S.

    The response was positive -- that they will include the tires in future analysis that they do every few months and that they will let me know the results. Hopefully they will provide something at least semi-formal and grant permission to post the information.

    This is central european type winter tires. If you live in an area with much snow and ice this is not good tires... If that is the case go for anordic style winter tires like Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 or Hakka 7/8 if studded.

    Oh and go down to 19" and square setup... 265 winter tires will be very "snaky" ride ;-)
