    I know it varies based on the driver's driving style...
    But at what miles did you guys change your tires? I think I heard as high as 43,000 Miles before. I am already hearing squeaking sound when I make a turn. It is about time for the maintenance for 2nd year anyway.

    Can any Tesla veteran(50K+ Miles) drivers share when you changed them?

    I needed need tires (orig MXM4s) at 27K. Got an $80 credit per tire with Michelin's tread wear warranty (not available through Tesla, but only via authorized dealers).

    I am at 31k miles, and will need a new set soon. I am thinking of stretching it another 2k miles or so.

    I changed my Goodyears at 36K. They would have lasted longer except for lots of highway miles at lowered suspension height wore down the inside of the rear tires. I turned off lowering.

    I checked it with the coin and it seems my tires are in the "tires are fine."
    I am approaching near the 27K miles.

    But when I take a sorta sharp turn, the tires make skidding sounds. Is this normal? I didn't hear them before and was worried whether I should change the tires.

    Your tires will certainly make different "noises" as it runs through it's lifetime. Your very powerful car can stand to get new tires before the "official" wear date.

    I think I am in the same boat. My guess is that I have about 2000-3000 miles before I change them.

    But those skidding sounds from U turn does gives me the alert.

    Same here. My Goodyears had about 37k, and just put the Cinturato's on.

    I changed my Goodyear Eagle Touring tires at 31k, but could have safely driven about 3-4k more miles.

    The rears go about twice as frequently as the fronts on my 2016 Model S 90D with 19"

    I rotate the rear to the front when I replace the fronts. If I catch it I roll the fronts to the back when they're the ones with more meat
