    Just curious what tires come with the 19" wheels. I noticed in the Tesla shop that the 19" wheels come with "235/40/19 – PIRELLI WINTER SOTTOZERO™ 3" tires. Wondering if the AWD w/ 19's come with the same "winter" tires if upgraded at order time.

    They come in 3 types but I think the standard factory configuration is Continentals.

    According to the Model 3 Owners Manual (page 132)
    Continental, ProContact RX
    Hankook Ventus S1 Evo3
    Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

    Thanks. I'm getting the P3D- w/ the 18" wheels. I'd really like to upgrade to the 19" wheels with all season tires (Tesla doesn't allow that option...so I'm going to purchase the wheels separately). I wonder if I can have Tesla ship the wheels with a different set of tires.

    Alternatively, I could go w/ aftermarket rims - but I really like the OEM 19" rims.

    Or...I could just get the 20" OEMs...but then I'd need a non-summer tire.

    Does anyone know if there is a recommended "touring" tire for the 20" rims?

    Ahhhhh!!!! This is just driving me crazy...
