    I would suggest manually checking all 4 tire pressures. You can also call the service center and have them check remotely it’s likely they didn’t change one of the settings between 19” and 21”. Or that one of your wheels might have the wrong or bad tpms sensor! From what I know they have a few places to make the change like the air suspension settings etc. above and beyond the one place we have control over which is in the tire pressure monitor reset screen.

    I'm going to bring them down to 42 psi. I don't think it will help my road noise but I'm hoping. Mine are really loud around 45-50 MPH as it almost starts a pulsing resonating sound. Almost sounds like I have off road tires on the car. The car is pretty new and has had a second alignment since it was delivered with the steering wheel so crooked so I'm sure it isn't that. Anybody else's arachnids really loud? I see they have acoustic sound deadening in them but it sure doesn't sound like it.

    Ya mine are also very loud vs the 19 inch wheels and tires I had before, obviously the 19" wheel tire combo has more tire sidewall to absorb the road imperfections and reduce the transmitted road noise. Also worth noting I do not have the sound material in my Arachnid tire set as they came with Pilot Sport 2 tires from the early / first program. I'm actually going to be swapping on a set of Pilot Super Sport tires with the sound material soon and ill be sure to let this thread know if I notice any difference.


    Back to pressures, always check the pressure cold / before you drive and set accordingly

    From the Tesla service manual ... PSI variables include wheel diameter, suspension type, dual motor and staggered rim width:cool:

    Hmm,, what would you go with on Performance Plus RWD but on winter 19" squared rims? They are set to 45 at the moment.

    (I run staggered 21" arachnids in the summer.)

    Good question ... I would recommend 45 PSI for the rear and reduce the front to 43 PSI for the Performance suspension :cool:

    If I'm not fully "utilizing" my car in winter would that still hold true? I'm driving on winter snow tires, I really am not ripping around like I do when it's warm in the summer and I'm on 21's...

    Since you are running winter tires you should be fine with 45 PSI all around.
    Here is a quick summary of the effect of different tire pressures for performance driving :cool:

    Car looks great but this is an Arachnid wheel thread and those are Cyclone 19" wheels not 21" Arachnids
