So I've been using all weather tires for my vehicles in Calgary for several years now. Our roads are rarely snow covered for long periods of time. I am using Nokian WRG3/G4 on my current vehicles. They have worked well over the years. Unfortunately they don't make a tire that will fit the Tesla Model Y factory rims.
So after a lot of researching I was able to find a 19"x8.5" Replika wheel that would fit the new Michelin Crossclimate 2 tire. With a 35mm offset the tire sits at almost the exact same distance out from the fender as the 20" stock wheel. I purchased the wheel/tire package from Tire Zone here in Calgary. They matched the price of wheel/tires from any of the online stores. Picked up the TPMS from Tesla.
I'm posting this in case anyone else is looking for an all weather combination for their Y.
So far I'm happy with the look, ride and noise on the dry roads. Keeping my fingers crossed that the snow performance will be acceptable.
Each wheel/tire is six pounds lighter than the 20" Induction wheels from Tesla.
How are you finding the CC2s? Decided to go with dedicated winter setup (Nokian Hakkas on 18s) but really like the simplicity of all weathers so interested to know how it's working for you.

I like them so far. They work well in the snow. Have not tried them much on ice yet. They do seem to hold more of our gravel than the Nokian WRG4 did. Took me a long time to pick all the rocks out the other day.
 
Hey everyone. I think my SD card failed on my MCU, because maps won’t download anymore. Kind of annoying because Tesla was in there twice (daughter board recall and SIM card swap) and didn’t tell me there was a serviceable wear and tear item. Tesla wants to replace it with a 16 GB card and I’d rather use a 128 GB high endurance card so it’s never a problem again.

Anyway, I met a guy at the super charger at Cross Iron that did LTE upgrades. Does anyone have his contact number or know of someone that does that? I figured I could get that done along with the SD card, possibly more conveniently at home or the super charger. Thanks all!

That was probably Darryl Kolewaski, he has a service/parts/accessories company called Canada Electric Car Management and can do most service at your home or office in Edmonton or Calgary.

Please forgive me if this is the wrong forum for this entry…

I ordered my MY in October 2021. LR, Blue, 19”, white interior, and tow hitch $73k. I understood there would be a wait time and was happy to wait for the delivery. Original D date was March/April, then May, then June, then July/Aug now sometime between Aug to October!!! October will be 1 year.
Before everyone goes into the chip shortage/Covid etc. which are very valid reasons, odd thing is, couple weeks ago I created an order with the exact same specs and showed delivery of May 2022??
Believe me I am a realist, and don’t fall for conspiracy theories but either they are baiting people to order cars with a fake delivery date or I’m starting to think they are pushing my order because they can make an extra $14k by fulfilling new orders ahead of mine!

There is bad faith legislation in Canada and I am wondering if anyone knows if Tesla has been held to task on their false delivery claims?

I will be purchasing the MY for 2 reasons, I still believe it is the best EV on the market and also to force Tesla into selling me a vehicle at $14k less than the current price

That May delivery date is a guess, based off of the options you pick. If you pick the options (including color) that Tesla has in the assembly line, then you car gets built fast. If not, then it’s a waiting game for when those specific options go to the assembly line.

Hopefully this will become less of an issue as more lines ramp up, but there’s no way to know when.
 
I ordered in Oct and EDD was April. was waiting to move into our new house and SA said just wait to move before filling in contact info with address.completed that end of Dec and new EDD is June. Not pointing fingers but I believe that advice delayed my D date. Friend order in Sep and got his mid Feb.

That could explain my postponement as I too changed my address and delivery from YEG to YYC.
My only issue was a new build (exact specs) showed delivery of May and Ive been pushed to sometime from Sept./Oct.
I could simply be letting my disapointment get the better of me because 3 weeks ago i recieved an email to prepare for delivery and organize payment/financing, so of course I thought D was imminent then date got pushed :(

I'd visit your local Tesla dealership and see what they say. Looking at the forums it seems like they have been delivering Oct 2021 LR models. I have the same order except black interior ordered Oct 26 and current estimated delivery of June 9-23. I mean it could be some issue with the white interior that pushed your date so far back but if that were the case I think you'd see others reporting much longer dates too.
