Tesla Winter tyres

Hello,
We have recently taken delivery of a Model X, and now it's time to change to winter tyres, we are wondering what other Tesla owners do.
Apparently, Tesla are partnered with Euromaster, how does this work? Do they just fit the tyres onto your existing rims or replace the whole wheel? Are they keenly priced or can a better price been found elsewhere?
TIA

Re: Tesla Winter tyres

You make an online appointment they supply a set of tyres and wheels if you ordered them when you bought the car.

Euromaster can keep your out of season wheels at a charge or you can take them home with you.

Tesla tyres apparently have foam in them. But you will only find out if...

I am having my winter tyres fitted on Friday...

Re: Tesla Winter tyres

I assume that the foam is inside with the purpose of noise reduction.
Otherwise no other technical purpose, so you can use any regular tyres for replacement - just look for low-noise (which probably also have foam), high pressure (as X is a heavy beast) alternatives.
No special "Tesla tyres" exists as they don't make tyres - most tyre manufacturers produce tyres with foam.

So no reason to go to any Tesla-tyre-specialist and pay their probably overcharged tyre/replacement/storage fees.
Unless you like to pay extra unnecessarily.

I use reifendirekt.ch to order tyres.
And an official garage across the border in DE to store and exchange my tyres.

So when you ring Euromaster do you have to give any reference number?
I'm sure we bought the winter tyres when we ordered, but so long ago I can't remember.
I emailed Euromaster and they just quoted me 1600chf for new tyres.
I thought they would ask for the VIN or something?

This kind of things are in the contract. Just read it, somewhere there should be the price of the winter tires. If not there, you did not buy them.

You must surely have an invoice from Tesla (usually by email) for the original purchase?? If you bought winter tyres they will be on it.

I have 18" Pirelli Winterreifensatz at CHF1874.60* - so your price from Euromaster is cheaper!

If you complete Euromaster's online booking form which requests your VIN and other details and whether Euromaster store your tyres. If you say yes then all will be OK. I guess if they don't cross reference with any then you don't have any...

*that's with standard Teslas Model 3 wheels too, but not aerohubs.

Re: Tesla Winter tyres

Yes I found the invoice in the Tesla account. We did buy the winter tyres.
Euromaster should have took our VIN and they can see if we have wheels.
I have now got an appointment to have them fitted.

Will they just charge a fitting fee now? if so roughly how much?

TIA

Have to say I am surprised you are worried about the cost after the above. I paid CHF179 in March for changing to summer wheels and storage and cleaning of the winter ones.

I can see why the share price is so high, their customers are not price sensitive , will that last, I doubt it.
