But, no wheels, right?
I have to agree with a lot of people, they are not attractive. Considering my daily commute of around 100-140 miles (Depending on which clients I go to), I would have to stick with the more attractive tires. If Tesla came out with a version of the Silver spoke performance wheel with a dark material filling the holes between spokes, I would be interested.
So do you think the LRR tires like the Michelin Energy will add much to the range of the S over and above the standard Goodyear tire that the TireRack does not consider to be LRR tires? As a Signature buyer and without the Aero wheels, I can't decide whether to just go straight to the 19" wheels that I personally like better or take the standard 21" wheels with the thought of selling them down the road and changing over to the 19". The other complicating problem is that you can't buy the 19" wheels seperately at this time. In other words, Tesla will not at this time, sell you a second set of wheels. Maybe a few months down the road they will, but right now no. That leaves into question what the cost would be to convert your car from 21" to 19" too. if the tires are close to a $1000 for four and the wheels are $1000, that is $2000 total.
Based on what we have learned from Tesla - it looks to me like BMW-compatible aftermarket wheels fit. Hopefully, they will confirm that (or Tire Rack will when they see a car). That would provide a lot of 19" and 20" choices.
Is flat really what you want or do you want a slight convex shape?
Would a film that is not completely rigid be a lot worse than something rigid ( because it would flutter )?
