I knew going into this car purchase that I was eschewing my self-imposed declaration (after multiple Subarus) that all ours cars would now and forever all be AWD. Sigh. But I couldn't resist the Tesla's pull. So here we are... what to do, what to do, what to DO?
If you've followed along this blog, you know that I've been planning for Winter since before we bought the car. In fact, I was one of the first owners to get the TST wheels from TSportline back in May. They actually arrived here long before the car did... and tortured me for months. MONTHS waiting to see them on my car. Lest you not appreciate how tortured I was, I will let you share in this pain... for you shall not see them mounted on the car until Part 2. BWAH-HA-HA!
The Model S tire size is conveniently weird. I say conveniently because the lack of available tires means that your shopping is pretty quickly over. Like a NBA player shopping at Payless Shoes it pretty much comes down to "I'll take whatever you have in my size... and please don't hurt me." Fortunately I was so far ahead of the seasonal shopping curve that prices were pretty satisfactory and my local store even had the exotic Nokians in stock for less than the Michelins. Glory be!
дерьмо out of them! Yay Finland! Wouldn't you love to see Boris' dashcam as he scampered back to Russia being chased by angry Finnish farmers?? So they know a thing or two about dealing with snow.
Not that you would, not that you could, but I wanted to see what they'd look like on the Subaru. How could I just roll them into the garage without trying it? Oh yeah, that looks pretty good! After a while I bet I'd even stop noticing the scraping sounds. The hourly gas stops would be tiresome, however.
Part 2 will be from our test mounting of the set and how to reprogram the TPMS sensors on your Model S. I leave you with a little preview picture:
