With tire options, I need traction on-road without destroying tread.
I have the model Y with AWD with 10,000 miles, Eagle F-1 option and have floored it every chance I get. Normally, a car eats up the front tires first due to turning, and I do like to corner hard. But, the Y is wearing the rear tires more due to flooring it. It is quite impressive with absolutely no slippage at full throttle, even in the rain. (I watched a Dodge truck recently struggle 4 times in the rain to slowly get its one tire to gain traction from a stoplight. Sad, but seemed quite dangerous if you needed to get going and avoid an oncoming car, for example.)

I am buying the tri-motor solely based on the 2.9 0-60, as fast as a 2021 Corvette, while seating 3 times as many, weighing twice as much and hauling 85 times as many groceries home.

I will be flooring the Cybertruck many times per day. The off-road tires will not hold up, and are not needed. What option will be available for us who want zero slippage, and only want exhilarating acceleration on pavement to destroy Camaros and Mustangs?
The giant rugged knobbed out tires are great for sand, climbing and floating over things for sure.

Although.. I do think back to the old original Army jeeps and some of the wild terrain that they could manage with just those narrow square shoulder jeep tires. It was really impressive for what they were.

I'm thinking that the CT, with it's advanced traction control, with decent, solid street tires will still perform very well off pavement as long as things don't get too extreme. I'm with you in that I'd rather have, quieter, longer wear, lower drag meat on the ground. It would be fun to test them out at regular and slightly lower pressure to see how they do off pavement too.

BIG endorsement for Tesla suspension system. Not that Dodge is a worthy test but wheel hop is wheel hop on wet pavement and Teslas are putting traction down.

Buy stock in tire companies. Great tires are going to go quick! LOL
