Tesla approved tires list? Need inexpensive tires for lease return

Does anybody know where you can find a Tesla approved list of tires? I need to return my P90D (lease return) in September and I need new 21". I'd like to save some money and buy less expensive tires but I want to make sure Tesla will accept them. I've heard from my Tesla SC that there is a "Tesla approved" list of tires but they didn't have the list.

Does anyone know if such a list exists or what the cheapest (decent) tires Tesla will let me return the car with?

As long as all 4 tires are the same brand you will be fine. I bought the cheapest tires I could find when I turned my Chev volt lease in. Not a problem.
 
i just put new Falken Azenis FK510 staggered setup on ours last month. we only have about 4 months left on the lease so i didn't want to spend $2000+. total price w/ tax and install at discount tire was $895. they are actually great tires - i don't notice any difference compared to the OEM michelins. very smooth and quiet.

p.s. i lease a lot and there are rarely any requirements other than some minimum tread depth and having 4 tires with "matching" brand. i have never been dinged at lease termination for using a non OEM brand. a lot of CPOs that were previously lease returns are probably going to get fresh new tires anyway.
