After all the discussion in other threads about P85Ds being delivered sometimes with 245 rear and front tires and sometimes with 245 front and 265 rear (like the P85+, staggered wheels option), things had apparently settled down with the main consensus being : c'mon, it's all wheel drive, there is no wheel spin 0-30, so it's ok if yours got delivered with 245s all around.
Now in the latest announcement if you listen to Elon's answer to somebody asking about chassis and handling upgrades for the new ludicrous speed power boost, he clearly says that handling does not need any improvement on the P85D, as it already is great as it is, you just need to have the staggered wheels - 'IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE'
Why would they then ship their P85Ds (like mine) with 245s all around? Is Elon's comment more subjective than technical? Don't get me wrong, I think the car handles great, beyond expectations, but I was surprised to hear that. Any other opinions?
