Again…I swear I was talking about this with my wife last night! I’m also undecided, but steering towards that decision.
I just realized I’ve kinda tied my own hands - recommended wheel width for my 225 Conti’s is 6.0”-8.0”. The OE wheels are 8.5” wide…. I guess I’ll be running my R187’s for winter 🙃

You just saved me some research time. Thank you!
Went outside and found these… I was home - they didn’t even ring the doorbell!

I was about to pull the trigger on the same tires. I like your set up. The rims came in yesterday and they’re beauties. The price was unreal.

I wanted to buy the Conti’s from Quattrotires as they’ve been my go-to for years. Awesome service and warranty service. Spoke to a CS rep yesterday for a price match with Blackcircles. She needed to confirm a few things and called me this morning. Although the tires would fit fine and the load rating is good, they wouldn’t be able to warranty the tires since the speed rating is too far off from the OEM tires. T rating for Conti’s at 190 km/hr….that plenty! Really dumb, but I understand their point. I’m a warranty guy so back to the drawing board.
I couldn't resist the Costco 20% off sale today. I'm about to pull the trigger on some Michelin X-Ice Snows with the stock tire size. I haven't decided if I'm going to mount winter tires on the stock rims or the Replika R187's. First time owing Michelin's for winter. Always been a Blizzak WS/Hakka guy. I just wish it wasn't so hard to find Hakka' in Ontario. Kal wants over $1400. No thanks.

Yeah! Looking at this sale too The X-Ice Snows does seems to be a good deal cause it already includes the install in the pricing

Exactly, along with the other perks of Costco installation. I live 10 minutes from my store so that’s appealing as well. I
pulled the trigger. One less thing to think about.

Now I just have to get out my crystal ball to determine when to book my tire switchover.
Haha…it’s always the case. I usually do them myself, but if it’s included why not. The Costco near me is just down the road which is a bonus. I’m going to keep my eye on the long range forecast. When she dips below 7 regularly I’m gonna do it.

How come? I've already received my Replika rims, and will be getting my snow tires soon.
Stock rims when used with the aero caps has better efficiency, thus better range, about 2 to 3%. Always good, but especially in winter when the cold cuts down on the range, every little bit counts

I also bought the R3 from KalTire when I first got my M3. Now I would probably go with the X-Ice because the Hakkapeliitta R3s are just too loud especially since I still drive around quite a bit in the winter and the roads are fairly clean in Toronto to put up with the noise.
Thanks, I'm debating on the R3 vs the PA4 in 19" for my MY, I've had the PA4 on my BMW and they were great for Toronto winters, feel and perform like summer tires when roads are just wet or dry and were very quiet.. good to know the R3 are loud, am now thinking the R3 will be too much winter tire for what I need and should go with the PA4 for the Tesla.

Well in case anyone is curious (I was!), here is what satin black r241s look like on blue and black Model 3s. My friend and I just had our all seasons swapped to these wheels, and a new set of xice shoes mounted to the aeros.

Total damage was $2050 tax in for the wheels and tires at a local tire shop in Scarborough.
