19 Inch Rim and Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 Tire on Tesla Model X


Okay, first thing we want to do is go to
suspension and put it into Jack mode This is the standard tire on the right and
the snow tire on the left these are the covers, the lug nut covers
and this is a tool that I have bought You can get them from Amazon and from Tesla.
Makes it easy to remove these covers. This is the jack pad
on the bottom of the battery When you set up your jack you want to
make sure that you put your jack here. This is a thirteen sixteenths lug nut. I want to make sure that they are
loose before I jack the car up Here are the standard lug nuts
that comes with the Tesla. The lug nuts that come from Tirerack with this particular rim is not a hex lug nut It requires a special wrench.
I guess it’s a theft resistant type of lug nut. These are unidirectional tires
which means they should only rotate one direction.
Tirerack has conveniently marked
the passenger side. You can also look on the tire itself.
They have a symbol that indicates
the direction of notation. The specs for tightening these lug nuts
is 129 foot pounds which is pretty tight After you install the tires
the tire pressure monitoring system will not register the new sensors
until you drive it for a while I didn’t have to do anything
other than put the tires on and drive A view of the car with the
suspension set to very low Standard height

  1. Just a minor mention. You really don't need to brake the lugs loose before raising the vehicle if you are using an air gun to get them off the vehicle. If someone is simply using hand tools to remove the lugs then yes you need to brake them loose before raise, not with the air tools though. It will save you some time since you already have what you need to get the job done quick and easy.
