    Picking up a demo P100D next week. They are doing a wheel swap. What tires should I expect on 21" turbines - Pilot Sports or Super Sports? I seem to remember reading Tesla may be playing around with different rubber lately?

    I have Pilot Super Sports on my P100D that I just took delivery of with 21" turbine wheels.

    Just a little more info., I have a 2013 P85 with 21"Tesla grey turbine wheels that is currently pending sale, and it has Michelin Pilot SuperSports in 245/35/ZR21's all 4 wheels (non-staggered sizes). The new P100D I just took delivery of 2 days ago has the new "TO" (Tesla Only?) designated Michelin PilotSuperSports which have an acoustic noise dampening foam fill in them I believe. They are slightly quieter I think than my old tires, both cars have air suspension. I love both cars and have been very blessed and fortunate to have owned both as they are the best cars I've ever driven. Good luck!
