Sorry if it's stupid question. I hit a curb and now I have rumbling noise when braking. My car 2 month old, should I go Tesla service or I can go to regular body shop? Because I think Tesla would charge me more, right? Thx.

You should inspect the area around the wheel(s) that struck the curb. Look for any obvious signs of damage or foreign objects lodged anywhere.

Also, you don't explain whether or not you experience any other symptoms while driving or otherwise. Are there any?

Not sure if it's common on these vehicles, but my previous car was notorious for having debris caught in the brakes. Check the dust shield, calipers + brake pads to make sure nothing is stuck in there.

Are you sure it's not a bent rim? It's only during braking?

I've certainly had plenty of small pebbles get temporarily stuck in my wheels.
