EV tires are tires designed specifically for electric vehicles — They’re lighter, more durable, and more expensive.
The Tesla Model 3 comes with 235/40R19 Continental ProContact RX tires with ContiSilent technology. The tire has a unique tire design, with a layer of foam on the inside of the tire to dampen road noise.
While this feature wouldn’t make much difference to road-noise in a gas-guzzler, on a Tesla Model 3 it makes all the difference.
How to Increase EV Tire Life.
Electric vehicles wear tires fast and they’re expensive!
Keep your tires at the right pressure and check the alignment yearly.
The best way to extend the life of your tires is just good driving habits and common sense. As tempting as it may be with all that smooth instant torque, avoid super hard acceleration, cornering, and braking.
Are EV Tires Expensive?
Yes. We recommend replacing your EV tires with the same ones that came with the vehicle. Don’t roll the dice on the features you bought the car for, like quietness, durability, and efficiency.
