    When I got back to my car today, which was parked in a public garage, I was thrilled to see some really lovely person decided to slash my two tires on the passenger side. Really lovely!

    I need to find replacement tires.

    The Continental model that are on the front (265-45R20) are not in stock at the Walmart that is near me.

    Do I need those exact tires or can I get something similar?

    Thanks in advance for any advice - anything will cheer me up today.


    P.S. A few days ago I made the genius decision to turn off Sentry Mode - I'm so annoyed at myself. I was able however to get the license plate number of the car that was parked next to me when I pulled in. The local police are looking in to it.

    Try your Tesla service center. They won’t price gouge you on the cost. Tire prices are competitive with TireRack. Plus you can be sure that your car with be lifted properly.

    Terrible news. If you have your own jack pad adapters I would use discount tire. They have always been good to me. Otherwise the SC is your best option. Hope your X gets new shoes soon!
