First post, just finalized my car #13565. Can't wait!
Forgive me if this questions has been asked/answered. I couldn't find search feature on the forums, which I find odd.
My current car (BMW 550i) has had terrible problems with pothole damage to the run-flat tires (and in one case, the rim) over the past 2 years.
Has anyone had any issues with pothole damage to the wheels/rims on the Model S? I know they're not run-flats, so that alone with mitigate a lot of the issues, but I'm also moving from 19" wheels on the BMW to the 21" on the Model S.
I'm trying to
a) get a sense from others if they've had problems or not
b) decide whether or not to buy tire/rim insurance
c) decide whether or not to buy a set of 19" wheels for the winter months
Thanks for any feedback!
