I was looking to put snow tires on my MX and I have a few questions. My vehicle came equipment with 20" wheels and tires, and I was looking on Tesla website and they sell a 19" snow tire package, but I hear that customers bought it very early and they get charged immediately and wait for many weeks since it's on backordered, so I am looking into other options:
1] I heard that wheels/tires have a major impact on your EV range. Does anyone have any recommendation?
2] I was looking to buy the BLIZZAK DM-V2 265/50R19 110T XL tires and 19x8.5" wheels. Will this work on my MX? And will Tesla service center install it?
3] I know going from 22" wheel to 20" wheel gives a 20%+ range increase. Does going from 20" to 19" also give a range increase?
