Can anyone direct me for a set of 2 tyres as I plan to replace in my Model S85D. Plan to get done at the earliest.
To be of good quality, with less price.
Location is Bristol.

Try Blackcircles for a shot at a decent price, I am planning of replacing 4 of mine in a month or so. Will probably give Avons a go as the come in a little over £500 fitted.

You can price the tyres to be sent to you or to get them fitted at ATS or whatever is near to you.

Thanks Biffa for this note.
I have however took to kwik fit from the advise of the Bristol service centre, as my MOT is due in a week time. Service center doesnt have the required appointment to fit the tyres. So for 2 of them came to £ 403.
Did this evening and will do the MOT next week.

Anyway Thanks for your note as well.

Can any tyre fitting place do the tyres, does the Model S require specialist equipment to lift??
Any tyre place worth visiting can do the tyres, there's nothing unique to a Tesla that isn't relevant to other cars (ie lift points, torque settings, air suspension etc)

For your own piece of mind, if you have air suspension it might be worth putting it into Jack for them (first put it into Very high, then press Jack). They often can;t find their way around the menus

Yes, you are correct.
I have taken to the Kwik fit shop in Gloucester Road, Bristol and explained the process. They have done only one Tesla Tyre replacement earlier.

I did manually checked the manual for jack and Lift position as I have Air suspension.
Followed the steps:
1. Increase suspension to very high.
2. Jack mode enabled
3. Then showed the engineers the points for doing the Jack.

All done within an hour.

Note: They did mentioned that the Auto checking on Tyre alignment may need to be valdiated with the Tesla Service centre as they dont have the necessary equipment to check.
I am planning to do this in Service center. I might need to take appointment.

Switch off your alarms too; else once the car is jacked the alarm will go off. As Anto said above, show the jack points - and give them the settings for torquing the wheel nuts (175 Nm). They are much higher than other cars in the same category and some places are surprised with such a high value. Once place I went didn't have a torque wrench that went high enough and had to borrow one from another tyre place!
