Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Tires on Tesla Model 3

The Tesla Model 3 comes with Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires. A common replacement is the Pilot Sport All-Season 3.

Opinions compared to the OEM Michelin Primacy MXM4

The OEM tire is an EV specific tire, so there is no doubt that the Pilot Sport will have better grip and perhaps a better ride, and definitely lower efficiency.

Range and efficiency with Pilot Sport A/S3+

Some Model 3 owners say that the Pilot Sport A/S3+ decreases range by about 10%, using about 25-30 wh/mi.

I went with 245/45R18….the original OEM tires were perfect for my commute and I only needed to charge when I got home. [These tires] lost about 30 miles.

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ Compared to Continental DWS

I’ve had both the A/S 3+ and Conti DWS previously on Audis — they are both excellent but the A/S 3+ are better overall with exception of snow handling where the DWS have a slight advantage in my experience. The A/S 3+ shine in the rain and most other normal driving conditions. Highly recommend either but will choose A/S 3+ when it comes time to swap out.

It’s a phenomenal tire, and if you have an all-wheel drive version of the model 3 I think it’s good enough in the deep winter, except maybe in snow Belt states. And in the dry it’s shockingly close to the PS4. Not as close in the wet perhaps, where the PS4 has got to be the best tire ever including even most track tires.
