    All,

    To those who recently took delivery on P85D with standard 19s, what tires did it come with?

    I'm curious what I might expect to get when mine arrives in a month or so. (I'm hoping for Michelin Primacy but expecting some sort of Continental).

    Thanks.
    Tim

    Just happened to be over at a friend's house today...they have a P85D with 19s and they are Michelins. Did not catch which model.

    That's a new one, I didn't know Tesla uses 19" Michelin Pilot Sport 3 as an OEM tire. I've only known them to use Goodyear Eagle RS/2 and Michelin Primacy MXM4 ....

    My December build D has Primacies on it. Surprisingly grippy in Insane mode launches and moderately aggressive cornering despite the hard, non performance compound.
