Tire Rack released Tesla Model Y tire sizes confirming staggered setup for Performance version

Blue Model Y

It looks like TireRack.com may have jumped the gun, as they now have both the Long Range (LR) and Performance versions of the unreleased Tesla Model Y on their website.

Tire Rack, which has been in business for 40 years, shows the LR Model Y will not have a staggered setup for either the 19″ or 20″ wheel options.

Much to the excitement of a number of Tesla fans, the Performance version will have a staggered setup, with larger 275/35 wheels in the rear.

The benefits of a staggered wheel setup on car like the Performance Model Y will be seen with better weight distribution, resulting in better balance, as well as a lower center of gravity which will further improve what will already be impressive handling.

After announcing the first deliveries of the Model Y will occur in March 2020 in the US (mid-2020 in Canada), the LR RWD version of the Model Y disappeared from the Tesla Design Studio. Now just the LR AWD and Performance models are available for purchase, starting at $72,390 CAD and $84,390 CAD.
