Standard 21" tires on performance S

Standard 21" tires on performance S

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...

Thanks

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...

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.

Epley | 08. Oktober 2012

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?
