I use VA Tire over on Metrotech Drive in Chantilly. They have serviced all three of our Model S's and even store my 8 21 inch rims for me in the winter. Guys there are huge fans of the Model S, I even showed them how to creep the car with app so they could find a nail in one of my tires this past week.
I try an stay away from the VA Tire on route 29 in Centreville, as it is always a mob scene (too many customers)
The Chantilly one is kinda hidden, you just have to dodge the crazy drivers that go to the Lotte Market Plaza, I always drive around back to the service bays to stay away from the crowds. Never had and issue there, they also installed my adjustable camber links in rear and have the same road force balance machines as Tesla. Also get my alignments there, they have a custom setup for the P85+ post camber link install so I don't get the excessive camber eating my rear tires up....
Did alot of searching around and end up going to G&C Tire and Auto Service in Chantilly to have my tires replace on my Model X. I was nervous about jack-point, knowing to use the jack setting on the car, etc.. Felt alittle better after seeing they had installed a Siemens and Tesla chargers. After it was done, checked the bottom and not one scuff mark near the jack.
Walked away with a great experience and best part was I was able to get work done in their lounge with free snacks ... Also the owner has a the "Not a flamethrower" that he lets folks try!
If you let them know "Crafte" send you .. maybe I can get some free service from referrals.
Same those dudes have done balance/tire/rotations on all three of our Model S's.Posted this in another thread, but had the annual inspection done at the Chantilly VA Tire and Auto (Metrotech) with no issues. The Service Centers can't/won't do Virginia inspections (I've been told) because that would theoretically make them have to offer the service to everyone, including ICE cars. Not sure if that's case or not.
They did an excellent job, and I was out in about 20 minutes total. Recommend coming on about 7:30 AM to get the first-thing rush out of the way and (as was noted) not have issues with food shoppers.
Oh yeah, it appears they don't actually offer tire/wheel storage as a general thing. That is/was for one person who has a special deal from a former manager. Wonder who that might be?
There are so many Tesla's in DC, I am shocked this would still be an issue. My indie guys has 3 Tesla clients even out here in the 'boonies'.
What does Tesla say? Seems getting one from them at their (higher) price would be better than doing two or four... Now if you will need to do a pair or four in six months or a year, then...Now I lost a tire, can't be fixed. VA Tire is telling me I have to replace all four. I would agree to two. AWD must replace all four????
Anyone ever here that line?
I went back over to the shop and I would say the driver has burned the treads off the tires. They're real close to the wear bars but I could get some more miles out of it.
They have always been good to us but this one isn't passing the smell test.
