why wasnt the original picture of dash screen posted? Why is it cropped to show all features?
Also it appears the tire pressure sensors are a bit more than what Im used to. Shows actual pressure? Those are going to be expensive to replace every 3 years.

You think your tires will last three years. How cute. EVs go through tires a bit faster than ICE cars. My wife has had her Model S since late 2016 and has never had to replace the TPMS in her tires. Approaching 100K miles and three sets of new tires. I love the constant tire pressure data. She doesn't like to see that info so we have different profile settings and it's on in mine.

Yep, 3 to 5 years expected. You see, there's no difference between the vehicle. It's the driver. Slow down, don't be so aggressive and drive safely. They'll last. You drive an ev like it's a race car because of the extra torque over an ICE vehicle that's why.

They do not go through tires faster. This is a myth.

Cars that are driven more excitedly go through tires faster than those who aren't.

EVs are fun to drive.

Not COMPLETELY a myth. The wear is the same for an ICE vehicle of the SAME weight and driven the same way. Increased weight causes more wear in both acceleration/deceleration and cornering at the same speeds. But ICE and BEV cars of the same size are rarely the same weight. And yes, the torque is addictive.

No, not controlling for weight. Fleet data shows no difference.

We know theoretically that more weight means more wear, but that's not the same as being a large source of wear vs day to day issues.

I’ll be screwed. My Michelins go bald by 20k already. Driving slow when you have some place you wanna be is… ummm… difficult.

At least they’ll be cheaper than the 37’s were for my F350.

take a look around for available 35s with an H speed rating (130 mph) and a 120 load index (3086lbs)

Goodyear and Pirelli had to *create*this combo

maybe Tesla will subsidize the expense to keep yelping at a dull roar

Cute? Ha! Your ignorance shows and that I find

Im never in a hurry. I plan and take my time. Im not on anyone elses time. You should try that.
Half the time, that’s WITH planning. Without cloning myself it’d be rough.lol

When I retire I’ll slow down, maybe. It’ll be hard to unlearn the habit.

LORD I HOPE!!!

:oops:

My truck was tuned and slightly quick for a behemoth, but busted u-joints (too much axle hop I think) and expensive tires eased me out of the throttle a little.

I am kinda concerned about the life/cost of the MT/R’s (“w/Kevlar”) vs. the Nitto Trail Grapplers I used to buy. Cybertruck ain’t light, and there should be lots of torque.

I’m hoping other manu‘s step up. I was thinking the “correct” GY MT/R w/K’s because of the sidewall molding that matches the wheel covers, but I‘m torn on those covers too.lol I’d probably ruin/lose them pretty quick. I live in a pretty rural area and see mud frequently.

I like the ”look” with the covers, but I highly doubt they’ll survive here. Plus it’ll be annoying announcing “time out…” while I stop and take them off.lol

ETA: Maybe someone will come up with some cool wheels that somehow kinda give the sci-fi look without getting trashed.

Yeah I have a feeling when it comes time to replace the tires I'm not even going to try to match the speed rating. No way in hell I'll be driving anywhere near that fast anyway.

Does anyone else feel they have gone over the top with the rectangle and triangle scheme? Just seems clunky and outdated.
Not really, the mirrors maybe but that's aero driven. Triangle logo on the airbag is cringeworthy though 😬
