Set of four new Michelin X-Ice 245/45R19 tires on Tesla OEM 19-inch wheels

For Sale Winter Tires, TPMS, and - $1,500 - Firm

Moving to a warmer area.

These tires are brand new and have never been on the ground. The current version TPMS sensors (Continental 433 MHZ) were purchased on October 3, 2017 from The Tire Rack. The tires were purchased on October 17, 2017 and mounted, filled with nitrogen, and dynamic balanced by Costco on excellent 19-inch Tesla silver slipstream wheels with Tesla logo wheel caps. The tires come with a 40,000 mile warranty. The set been stored inside since mounting.

The Tesla cost for this set is $3,400.

Michelin X-Ice Xi3 tires are the best tires available for severe winter conditions. The X-Ice Xi3 is Michelin's third-generation Studless Ice & Snow winter tire developed for drivers looking for ice and snow traction along with predictable handling in cold, dry and wet wintry conditions. They meet Michelin's Green X standard for low rolling resistance. Green X will extend your range. They are also quiet with a good ride.

You may wish to read the reviews on these tires at Consumers Reports or the Tire Rack. The Tire Rack also has excellent information on why 19-inch wheels (not 21-inch wheels) and high aspect ratio tires are what you want for winter conditions.

The rubber used in all-season or summer tires is not designed for conditions below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. That rubber gets harder and loses traction even in dry conditions. The rubber used in Xi3 tires stays flexible and retains traction in the cold.

When winter conditions come to your area, you swap your summer or all-season tires for this set and you are ready for slippery conditions. The set of four will easily fit inside a Model S or X if you have a tire shop make the switch.

All warranty and related paperwork is available to the purchaser.

You will pay the shipping cost itself. I will package the set of four for shipment to you by the shipper of your choice at no cost. Alternately, you may pick them up near ZIP 96061.
