    They are identical to the ones I took off, im fairly sure at the time I got the link from someone on the teslamotorsclub forum who had researched a few.

    Super will get some next week thanks. I dont trust their website :)

    Got two tyres today as i was working nearby.

    https://www.discounttyres.ie near Blanchardstown,

    They always stock some of these tyres they said 235 45 ZR 18 98Y

    €235 fitted and balanced each. Could definitely have shopped around a bit more but was convenient.

    Last year I got 2x Michelin Pilot Sport 4 235/45 R18 98 Y XL, MFS, ZR from Openeo for €166 each, and paid €25 per wheel to fit, so worked out €191 per corner fitted, which I was happy enough with, so will most likely go the same route again this summer.

    I see Openeo now have the (T0) Acoustic PS4's for €210 each!! Not sure I can stomach an extra €200 for the 4 acoustic's!!


    But just looking again on Openeo;

    Why would you take the PS4 over the E Primacy? E Primacy is A rated in fuel compared to the PS4's B rating, and though the PS4 is speed rated to 300km/h compared to the E Primacy's 270km/h, would that ever really matter in the real world, with speed limits? E Primacy is even coming in at 70dB compared to the 'acoustic' PS4's 71dB!

    As a side note, Tesla measured my thread depth last week when the car was out with them having the upper control arms replaced and the ball joints re-sealed;

    Front's: (49,000km) Driver side: 4.5mm Passenger side: 4.2mm

    Rears: (19,000km) Driver side: 3.2mm Passenger side: 3.8mm


    Whats the thread depth on new tyres typically? 10mm?

    Not sure, they said i wont need to change my fronts until i need to change those rears again, so another 30k.

    That would be 60k on the fronts.

    I think most are around 8mm, except Bridgestone who try and be really eco and only give a reputed 5 or 6mm..😏

    Continental Conti Sport Contact 5 ContiSilent - €205 per tyre,

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4 Acoustic - €225 per tyre


    Prices fitted from Tyreland, thought that was fairly decent when looking online.
