I've ordered an S85 that I am getting in December and I'm not sure what to do regarding winter tires.
My option is either spend $4K with Tesla and buy their winter rims and tires and get the delivery centre to put them on before I pick my car up
Get tires installed from a third party place by them removing the tires off the rims and putting on the new tires OR buying new rims and tires.
Of course cost matters and I think the $4k (or whatever it is in Canada) for tesla rims and tires is pretty expensive... but I do want the tires installed correctly with the sensors and correct torque.
What do current Tesla owners recommend I do and what have you guys done with your own vehicles.
If anyone can suggest any place in Mississauga/Brampton/Richmond Hill/Markham area for tires that do a great job that would be appreciated along with what to get.
I would go with a separate set of rims+TPMS+tires. They don't have to be from Tesla, so you either get each of them separately based on maybe price and/or preference; or wait for a used set of rims to be listed by one of the owners (you have time until December).
I'm personally going with Nokian Hakka R2s (took an appointment today), and will be using my current 19" wheels for winter. And I will buy a used set of 21" rims for the summer later. The sensors can be bought from TireRack for $479.64 (shipped to Canada including taxes and fees).
With all the positive stories I hear about the Nokian, I will not buy anything else. It looks like we will be having a serious winter this year as well and it's a RWD car after all.
