Hello, there,
my lease (model S 2017) will end in March 2021. I need to replace a tire now, I plan to replace it with the cheapest one.
I called America's tire, they gave me three options:
GT Radial being cheapest; then Good year RSA2, Good year eagle touring being most expensive.
I am wondering is there a reason I should not save 60 bucks and go with the cheapest one given that my lease ends soon?

Thanks!

Most leases require all 4 tires to match at turn-in. (And have a certain percentage of tread left, check your lease documents for details.)

If you're just turning in a lease and tread depth is the only requirement, I see no reason not to save the $60 and get the cheapest tires unless you would just hate rolling around on cheap tires for 3 months.

you can probably go even cheaper trying to find a used set that has about the correct depth

Depending on the finance company, they need the original tire rating and/or models to match.

Assuming the other three tires are good, get the same exact tire so they match for peace of mind. Find a used one if you can.

How are they on efficiency?

Really can't tell. Bought the car (used from Tesla) in May. Replaced tires in June. Only have used car for local short trips, very little freeway driving. I can't tell the difference in noise between these and originals. They really grip the dry road and are good in the rain.

I would just look in the classified section here and find a matching tire or even full set of used tires that are OEM to avoid issues.
