Warranty Escalation

Tesla says in the Warranty, after you try to get the vehicle serviced, the next option is to go through the Dispute Resolution process outlined in your warranty. I do not see where wheels are specifically excluded, but Tesla probably will claim you damaged them unless the car is very new. Maybe you can get your auto insurance to pay for them if it is road damage.

Alloy rims are notoriously easy to bend. Sometimes the bend can have zero affect on ride/handling. Othertimes will cause a vibration. Sometimes a wheel balance can address the vibration to varying degrees. Thee are also wheel repair places in just about every big city that can fix bends/rash/damage, etc. Can often restore to like new.
