    I have an 85D up near Green Bay, Wisconsin so I am trying to get snow tires and wheels installed locally. It's 3 plus hours to a service center in Illinois, so I plan to avoid doing that. I received a quote for $2,600, including the sensors. This is for 19 inch Michelin ICE tires and Legano (sp?) wheels. I was surprised it was about the same as what Tesla charges. Is this amount high? Or is this a reasonable price?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    That's the current price. Last year Tesla charged far more for the wheels, but they lowered the wheel price to $300 this year.

    Ok, thanks. So $2,600 is a pretty typical price then?

    Telsa only has one price so that would be the cost then.

    FWIW, I highly recommend Tire Rack. They helped me with a very tricky fitment for my NSX.

    TireRack Rial Lugano OE Cap+sensors+Michelin X-Ice $2100. Tesla service center gray center caps $25 shipped.

    Working in the driveway under the CO2 blanket in 64 degree OH winter is a bliss.

    Now I am waiting until my Feb. yearly service to activate the sensors.
