i've been buying set of 2 19" OEM Goodyear tires (245/45R19) for my 2013 Model S from Tesla every 18 months for the past 6 years at a cost of just under $500. The tires last about 30,000 before being replaced with 1 rotation at 15,000 miles and have very even wear.
i am contemplating getting BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S tires from Costco because Tesla has raised the cost of the tires to $550 for set of 2 Goodyear tires; am told mostly due to cost increase of labor rather than cost increase of the tires themselves.
Debating on getting my next set of tires from Costco not only for cost considerations but also because Tesla charges approx. $45 for flat repair to plug a nail hole, where as Costco has free flat repair (if repairable) and free tire rotations.
i am contemplating on the Michelin Energy MXV4 ($265 each), Michelin Pilot Sport3 ($240 each), and BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S ($195 each).
Leaning towards to BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S because of cost factor and also it was rated as one of the top performance tires back in 2016 for superior handling on wet, dry and snow traction, and are rated. None of the reviews i've searched on-line had discussed road noise factor on those tires, which would a primary consideration for my purchase decision.
All opinions and feedbacks on recommended tires will be appreciated.
Thank you all in advance.
