I looking forward to spring (above 45° overnight) to install my set.

What brand tire wraps and felt pads do you guys recommend for transportation and storage? Tesla no longer offers them for sale on their website. I have to believe that there's a better solution than lawn bags and old rags. My wife would kill me if I stained the cream interior with my "silly" tires and wheels. Thanks.

@Daniellane Thank you.

I like your tire storage set-up. I recognize the Costco wire rack but where did you purchase the red metal tube framing?
I bought it on eBay. Many similar items are available. I wanted red.
I tried to research the exact product for you.
I found the link to the original listing but it is no longer available. Here is all the info I couldn’t get in that research.

Shout out to Pentium2004, Navsarin, and RedS75 for the inspiration! Swapped over from the slipstreams :eek: The ride isn't bad at all (coming from both a C7 Corvette and a JL Wrangler with 33's - I don't think anything would bother me after those two!) No regrets so far!

Officially on pothole watch here in LA!! :D Gotta find a better background for pictures!

***Lesson learned: Wait until you get home, or pull over to the side to update your wheels in the system. Disregarded the warning mentioning the car would reset (didn't know how long this would take) and was stuck at a turning traffic light with a dead Tesla. :oops: Thankfully the light was super backed up, but my stomach was in knots as the people behind me (as I waved them around me) were probably like "And this is why I'll never buy a Tesla! That thing is already broken down and still has dealer plates on it!!"

When I picked up my brown CPO P85 four years ago, they just came out with a new color. I knew my next Tesla would be that color. P85D used for $50,200 and four year warranty, 34K miles, and fresh spiders. Maybe it’s just me, but if there is a prettier ‘stock’ model S, let’s see it.View attachment 475274

your front one has black tesla caps and the rears have silver. interesting design choice
