    I have a new MS with the 21's and a staggered setup.
    What is the best tire pressure to run them in?
    Thanks

    I believe 42psi for the 21s, but mine are not staggered. As noted, door pillar should give specs for as delivered config.

    Ok, I keep getting conflicting info.
    Called Tesla and was told 42 in the fronts and 40 in the rears. They were suppose to put a sticker on the car but online says 40 all around if you have the 21s and staggered setup with the Air Suspension, which is what I haven and bishoppeak says 42 all around.
    Mmmm

    Thanks a bunch, I have the 75D, same color but the Grey Wheels, do you have the Air Suspension? I have it and found a Tesla site that said 40/42 if you have that option.

    I have the air suspension. Perhaps your smaller motors and battery make for less weight and hence, lower tire pressure. I'd go with what is on your sticker.
