    I just upgraded my wheels to 22" turbines but I am not sure what height to set the suspension to? I have no issues with "low" (no slopes to contend with) but have heard that setting to low will wear out the tires faster?

    What do you guys with 22" rims set your height to on the X and why?

    Thanks!

    Because of the shudder issue Tesla aligned all cars at “low” setting that will be the best for wear and to avoid the shudder at fast acceleration

    Mines on low for 7k miles and wear is good at 45psi

    I’ve been set on low since delivery with 22s, 25k miles, even tire wear thus far. Around 5mm.

    This guy knows what he’s talking about. I had camber issues on my AP1 on low but not on my AP2. It’s just old info now on the wear.

    I have been driving with low setting since delivery in April, 2017; 20k miles - no issues.

    Set psi to 45 instead of 42 and low or very low won't give you inner tire wear (22s with 24k)
