    Hi.
    My MX has chewed through a set of summer and a set of winter tires in 50,000 km. I have two sets of staggered Tesla rims.

    So...
    I'm thinking of using the 9 in wide rims from the front of both sets to make a uniform 4. Then putting a set of Michelin Defenders on (rougher for summer gravel travel; pretty decent in winter). But they don't come in 45 side wall. So would get 265/50-20.

    Does anyone have this size on their car?
    Does it run on front upper arm at all?

    (PS: I was not happy with Pirelli snow tires)

    That's a substantial difference, about half an inch. I'd be concerned about it rubbing in the front.

    I'm running 19" Model S slipstream wheels with Michelin 245/55R19 tires. I have 25,000 miles on them and looks like I will get at least 25K more on them. I am get over 300 mile of range per charge and have a great ride and no fear of potholes. Not "Boy Racer" tires and wheels but great ride and long range.
