I have Michelin MXM4s (OEM) on my Model 3 LR. Michelin owner's manual says that directional tires have arrows molded on the sidewall showing the correct rotation direction. I don't see any arrows molded on my sidewalls. I presume that means that they are not directional and that I should follow the picture on the left for the correct way to rotate them. Does that seem correct? FWIW, these tires are for sale on Summit Racing website and it says that they are directional.

Any tire shop is fine. Many will do it for free if you buy your tires there. I use a local shop where I have always purchased my tires and they rotate for free. Others here will mention Discount Tire, Belle Tire, Costco etc. You need to make sure they have the pucks to raise the car correctly but in my experience, Teslas are so common now they know what to do and it's not an issue.
Thanks, appreciate the response! Sorry it took a while !!

Why not just do it yourself? I just passed 10k miles and still hadn't received a notification to rotate my tires, so just did it myself. Took my time, cleaned the inside of the rims, checked the calipers and pads, checked the tire pressures and filled to 42psi, and in all took me about 45 min.

Total cost: $0 You just need 2 jacks and do it in your garage or driveway.

Good for you. I don't have even one jack, and this is not something I'd attempt by myself. I can check the tire pressures and fill them when needed, but that's about it. I'd rather take it to a tire shop and have it done right, for a few bucks.
