So I finally got off my behind and rotated my tires yesterday. I was going to get it done at Costco, but first my local store doesn't have the Tesla lifting pads, and second after a member here posted that Costco damaged his car while doing it, I decided to just do it myself. Took about 35 minutes. Next time should be faster as now I know the pucks worked.
I went cheap and bought couple of hockey pucks from Dick's sporting goods and screwed on couple of rubber floor protectors I had around the house. What's cool about the Model 3 is that just lifting it by the rear lifts the whole side of the car. For added safety I put a jack stand on the front. One thing of note is prior to loosening the lug nuts, with my torque wrench set to 129 pounds I was able to get it to turn 1/8 of a turn before it clicked. The wheels have never been removed before so it was torqued from the factory. I only tested one wheel but all 5 lug nuts I was able to make 1/8 of a turn before it clicked.
My car has about 16k miles on it and is a dual motor non-P. I hardly ever get on the throttle. The passenger's side rear has visibly more wear than the driver's rear. Perhaps the driver's weight aids traction on the driver's side who knows lol. What is more concerning though is the inner edge wear on opposite corners, on the passenger's side front and driver's side rear (which are now on passenger's rear and driver's front after rotation). Tire pressure always at 42psi cold which I monitor at all times. To you guys with more knowledge on tire wear, is this an alignment issue?
These are the pucks I bought, in case you're also looking to DIY and too cheap to buy the dedicated Tesla lift pads. As always do this at your own risk. I splurged an extra dollar on the 10oz ones for $2.99 each. The $1.99 ones felt much lighter.
