I had a tire go flat on me yesterday due to something that punctured a hole in the passenger side rear tire.
I have a dual-motor/AWD Tesla 3, 2018 with 11.3K miles.
The car came with Continental tires 19" wheels.
I have not heard back from Tesla yet if the tire is bad or if it can be fixed but it appears unfixable due to tire wear is getting close to wear bar. The puncture is in the later outside edge of the tire and the tow truck guy said he did not think it would be fixable.
Give that, I will likely need two tires? I'm not thinking 4 because the front tires have more tread left than the rear.
Can I put on Michelin A/S 3 as the pair on the front or back with the other pair being the original Continental tires?
I'm not a fan of Continental and have loved the Michelin Pilot Sports on other cars I have owned.
