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.
it's a myth EV vehicles weigh more than a
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.
my hummer h2 weighs more by a few hundred pounds by what was posted recently and have BF G's KM3 35s MT's and have been holding up very well.

I actually do. Failsafe in an emergency situation and not really much of a bother.
Funny, I remember the times they broke, stripped out, or you hear a chunk and watch the glass fall into the door…
I HATE cranked windows and only had them until I could afford better.
Memories of the past are so interesting on how the same thing can be viewed from different perspectives…

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
I noticed in looking at Model Y tires and wheels that the same tire with the same ratings just with an 18” center are much cheaper.
If I ever have to buy new wheels for a Model Y, I will buy 18”…

I love this UI, it's looking very mature.
I'd be fascinated to hear an interview with the UI design team about what their mission brief and inspiration was.
They're doing great work here.
Of course I need to use it first to accurately judge it.

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.
All Tesla's TPMS show the actual pressure (at least since my 2013 MS).
By "replace every 3 years", are you talking about the TPMS sensors? because replacing them anywhere near that often is just tire shop scam. I've had to walk out of a shop that insisted that I replace them with my first tire change. The same shop charged a gal I know that had an indirect TPMS system that doesn't even use in tire sensors. 😳 💸

Direct TPMS systems use a sensor on the valve stem that sends the actual pressure via radio signals. Unless they have inferior Chinese batteries they should last for ~10 years. They shouldn't be changed before that unless they've been unreliable or stopped working.

To keep your's in good shape, keep the valve stem covers on, or at least clean them out before adding air. Ruining or rusting your valve stem may force you to have to replace those expensive little sensors before you'd need to just because the valve is leaking air. 😬

Yep, one or two fail every 3 years. On Chevy, Ford, Toyota that I've had.
