Was trying to figure out the standard tires tesla puts on Model S Performance, but it's not in the specs. If you've received your car, could you check what it is ? Curious if they install Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 or Continental...
Actually, it's on the web page:
. Note: optional 21" wheels come with Continental Extreme Contact DW 245/35R21 high-performance tires
But not on MVPA.
Elon's car has Michelins on it...
Sergiyz is correct. Just checked and that is was is on my P85
Sears has the continentals for 914.56 installed for 4---not a bad price for a large tire.

How did you find that out epley? I think our cars are coming up on the same truck.
From my delivery specialist, Ben. Can't wait for that truck to get here!
I haven't heard from him yet but I'm sure he'll get to me when he can.
@eply - why are "tire pressure sensors" called out only with the wheel+tire packages?
I mean, if I buy four 19" wheels, then have Sears or Les Schwab sell me and install winter tires, am I missing the TPM function? Or do you think this is just "marketing speak" to help Tesla sell the package with tires pre-installed?
It might have something to do with my issue of why Tesla rangers are unable to rotate or align the tires. In order to do that, I must drive 7 hours and 400 miles round trip to Boston! Crazy!
They'd need a lift. What about getting access to a local shop's lift for the work?
