TESLA MODEL Y WHEELS AND WINTER TIRES

Posted by:tire specialist1

TESLA MODEL Y BECOMES A SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER CAR WITH LIGHT WEIGHT WHEELS. FRIGUS EV ICE 3 ALSO INCREASE RANGE

In this article we will try to explain how the wheels work on electric cars like the Tesla Model Y. Many people have been waiting for the Model Y, and finally now the car came to Europe. Model Y is equipped from factory with 19x9.5 and 255/45R19 tires or 20x9.5 with 255/40R20 tire dimensions. The STRO norm and our inhouse team recommend 19x8.5 or 20x9 dimensions based on a solid foundation, respectively. Narrow wheels is less weight, and the correct width of the rim in relation to the tires reduces edge driving. You do not have to buy new expensive original rims, especially when you only need 1 or 2 rims. To avoid aquaplaning and the wave of water in front of the tire on wet winter roads, FRIGUS EV ICE 3 offer the most efficient anti-hydro pattern of all winter tires.

THE MASS ROTATION FORCES IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TO THE WHEEL FOR EVs, INCLUDING TESLA MODEL Y 

Motorsport and biking, it is common knowledge that the wheels must be as light as possible at the farthest radius. There are small weight differences between different tire brands, but on the other hand, the weight differences can be significant for wheels. Forged wheels are less weight than cast wheels, and cast wheels by the "rotary forged" method are the easiest way to reduce the weight of the wheel itself. In motorsport where the wheels have a significantly smaller radius than the Tesla Model Y, approximatily 7 HP reduced energy consumption for each kilo you reduce the weight of the wheel. Tesla Model Y wheels have a much larger radius that will give savings of 10-11 HP for each kilogram reduced, and additional energy if the savings occur exclusively in the outer ring.

18 INCH WHEELS ARE TESTED ON THE MODEL Y

See video from TeslaBjørn and how he rates  the Model Y with 235/55R18 Winrun on the superlight weight ZAX Turbin X. We do have some good winter tires in 18 inch for Tesla Model Y. 18 inches versus 19 inches OE Tesla Model Y wheels is 5 kg/wheel savings, which reduce the energy consumptions with 50 Hp under average driving conditions. See recommendations on the site.

WIDE AND LARGE WINTER WHEELS COLLECT A LOT OF DIRT INSIDE THE WHEEL DURING WINTER TIME

Dense "turbine wheels" collect a lot of dirt in the winter, especially on the rear wheels and it is normal to wash out 1-2 kg with solidified mud layers that do not settle evenly around the wheels, and imbalance occurs. If the wheel are more open, it is easier to shovel away the dirt from the outside. You must remove the OETesla Model Y wheels to get the dirt washed out, preferably 2-3 times per. winter season.

See comparisons between the Tesla OE wheels and the ZAX Wheels recommended for the Tesla Model Y. Below we have a comparison in 19 inches. We recommend the most optimal rim width for both the tire dimension and the car. The same impression gives the same center center of the tire and the same outer beak dimension on the tire. Some people think that wider rims give a new different tire side position, but that is wrong. See the calculation form for the tire side when you click on see pictures. Then for you also see a picture of the tire side position in relation to the original.
