    Hey Tesla community,

    Has anyone in the Bay Area (preferably SF) had to patch a tire on their Tesla? Would be nice to find a place that has some experience with the Model S, though would be interested to hear if you went to a chain place that was gentle enough to handle your baby :)

    Thanks.

    America's tire. I had a slow leak fixed.No charge and they are familiar with Tesla.

    Don't think familiarity with Tesla is really required to fix a leak.

    Believe it is when jacking up the car, but maybe I'm wrong.

    I've taken our P85+ to Larkin Brothers on South Van Ness and about 13th-14th St several times - I,mediate raid, very fair pricing for patching, and honest about what could and could not be patched. Especially when we still ran the 21" wheels on,our car.

    SF potholes won and we now run the 19" wheels and tires instead and no more patching.

    Lift points and lug torque specs. They also don't charge to fix the flat.
