    Steering Wheel Shakes when Dropping to ~40 MPH

    One of my family's favorite things to do is to accelerate off a stop light, then ease up and go back to the speed limit. We don't go too far over, just enough to get the feel for the M3's acceleration. As of about a week ago, the steering wheel started to shudder when we dropped to about 40...

    Let's talk about tires...

    We've only put 1,300 mi on our 3 so far, but as my wife's daily driver it gets at least 550/mi per week. She's not an aggressive driver but no light-foot either. If the life of the tires truly ends up being ~20k, we're looking at yearly tires. I know there probably aren't too many people...

    had tires rotated, now they squeal- why??

    So I took Nik on a road trip, went 4500 miles (see here for the blog evtrip2018.blogspot.com). I had 2k miles on the car before i left. I scheduled a tire rotation for a few days after I got home since I was over the 6250 recommended rotation point. Ever since I got the car back one or both of...

    0-60, Skidpad grip and Braking - 18" vs 19" wheels

    I placed an order for the dual motor with 18 inch wheels last week, and then saw the Edmunds track tests comparing the 18" and 19" packages. According to them, the 19 inch wheels/tires are better in following ways: 1) Skidpad improves from 0.85g to 0.93 g, which is HUGE imo. 2) 0-60 improves by...

    Denver Colorado Upgrade Mechanics?

    Now that I've seen more Model 3's in Denver, Colorado and as an owner myself, I'd like to find a reputable location to do some of my upgrades. I'm going to start with Unplugged Performance springs, which I have now received. Does anyone have any suggestions here in Denver for me to allow work...

    That $5k Performance Upgrade option, Part Deux

    (Some of this has been mentioned separately in other threads, but new information about the $5k Performance Upgrade option (gonna call it PUO here) available only with the Performance version of Model 3 helps clarify and consolidate some thoughts about it.) I currently have the $5k Performance...

    OEM Wheel and Tire Widths vs. Model S

    Here's a question for the wheel and tire gurus on the forum: Why do the OEM wheel + tire setups for the Model 3 include 8.5" wheels paired with 235mm tires, while the base Model S features 8" wheels paired with 245mm tires? What factors may have influenced this design decision? I started...

    Anyone else interested in participating in a Winter Wheel & Tire group buy?

    Snow isn't that far away for some of us, so we need to start planning our snow outfit :) I normally prefer Nokians, on downsized OEM rims, but this combination may not be an option. The Tesla solution is pretty expensive, and I really prefer Nokian Hopefully we can find a shop interested in...

    Switching wheels from 18's to 19's

    After 20 million years we finally got around to switching our aeros 18's for the stiletto 19's. Once the wheels were on, we drove around the block so the sensors could calibrate. The car detected that the wheels had changed and asked us to confirm the new size (choice of 18, 19, or 20) and reset...

    Summer Compound Tires

    Hey Everyone, I took delivery on my beautiful PW Model 3 with factory 19" sport wheels. I love driving, and the Model 3 has really impressed me so far, but when I push it the dynamics feel a bit tire-limited to me. This isn't a huge surprise because I'm sure the tires were spec'd with maximum...

    Wheel/Tyre Discussion

    Elon confirmed early on in a tweet reply to Model 3 Owners Club that the prototype wheels used at the Model 3 reveal will be produced. Since then, I haven't seen anything further about the wheel design, specifically what appears to be a single, center-point attachment, similar to formula-one...

    Aftermarket wheels: How are you going to handle TPMS sensors?

    I was planning on the Aero wheels now that I saw how great they look with the covers off, but I was considering an aftermarket set possibly for summer. So how to handle the TPMS sensors? If the sensors are standard, most of the larger wheel and tire retailers can add them and ship as a package...
