    Was at the Tesla service center yesterday, and found out if you are a new owner (within 30 days) you can go to Discount Tire and they will sell you a tire warranty.

    Just returned from there. Covers anything that damages the tire (pothole, nail, blowout, etc) for the life of the tire, if they can't fix it you get a new tire.

    $230 for all four tires - 21" P+ Tires.

    Replacement cost $549/ea just FYI.

    They did have some less expensive alternatives as well that will fit + (can't remember brands).

    Just passing along some good info...:cool:

    I was able to go to my local Wheel Works and buy a tire warranty on my 19" Goodyears for about $160 for all 4. Lifetime flat repair/replacement. I'm happy.

    Thank you for this info, I will look into it today. I recently had to replace a rear tire (sidewall damage from brushing against a curb at very low speed) at the Tesla service center. Cost was $820 for the tire ($720 + tax) + mounting.

    BTW it is interesting that the Tesla service center never mentioned this to me......:confused:
