From this we can only conclude that you have never been to a regular dealership. What goes on in a Tesla shop is nothing like what goes on in a dealership. At least not in my experience.
One could also conclude that people have different opinions and definitions of what a dealership is.

It's pretty clear what a dealership is in this context. It is an independent middleman who buys cars from an OEM and sells them to the consumer.

A more reasonable interpretation would be that some dealers are sleazier than others. I have found that to be the case.

One of my favorite tales on this is my colleague who used to work in a dealership. When he needed a new car he walked into a dealership and told the salesman that he had formerly worked as a car salesman, that he knew every trick in the book and this if this sales man tried any of that stuff on him he'd walk out. So the salesman tried some of that stuff on him and he walked out. By the time he got back to his office the phone was ringing and it was the manager from the dealership wanting to know why he had walked out. Bob explained and then asked, why, having been prewarned, they went ahead with the sleaze anyway. Evidently there was a long pause on the other end of the line after which the guy said "Because we sell a lot of cars that way."

See, now I'm in a dilemma. Do I actually give you sources in response to an overly literal response, or just assume you can Google it? I'm genuinely curious how to make everyone happy.
Sometimes you have to just give up trying to get your point across even when you feel strongly about something because there is always someone with time to argue. There are two threads here that I have to make it a point not to open and read when they come to the top because I don’t want to get sucked back into the never ending back and forth. It’s mostly fun here but not always lol.

Also, your your mother was a hamster and your father smells of elderberries. Prove me wrong.

This is what I have gathered so far: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R With Kevlar 35x12.50 mud-terrain tires. Also, this closeup of the wheel without the aero cover (from the glass test video):

Kevlar? Is that to complement the 9 mm bullet proofings during drive-by getting shot ats?

Many people say they go to a "Tesla Dealership" even though "technically" they're Tesla stores. But I guess that was already "pretty clear" to you in this context.
