Ensuring proper maintenance of your Tesla's tires is crucial for optimal performance and safety on the road. One key aspect of tire maintenance is tracking tire rotations and service mileage to ensure even wear and maximize tire lifespan. Here's how you can easily track tire service mileage in your Tesla:

Accessing Tire Service Mileage

To find out how many miles it's been since your last tire service, follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to the "Controls" menu by tapping the car icon at the bottom-left of the screen.
  2. Select "Service" from the menu options.
  3. Tyre service mileage is located in the top right corner of the Service page.

This requires software version 2023.20.4.1 or later.

Resetting Tire Service Mileage

When you get your tires rotated, replaced, or swapped, you can easily reset the tire service mileage. Simply tap the "Reset" button within the "Service" menu to update the mileage and keep track of your tire maintenance schedule accurately.

If you are tracking your tire service mileage in Extra Trips, navigate to your custom tire rotation trip or create a new trip, then tap the menu icon, and then tap "New Trip Segment" to start a new trip segment for your current tire rotation.

Inputting Tire Configuration

In addition to tracking service mileage, it's essential to input your tire configuration in your Tesla. This tells your car to reset the learned tire settings to improve your driving experience. You can do this by navigating to "Controls" > "Service" > "Wheel and Tire" > "Tire."

Tesla's Recommendations for Tire Rotations

Tesla recommends rotating tires every 10,000 kilometers to ensure even tread wear, maximizing their lifespan, and preventing early replacement. This rotation practice extends tire life, even for staggered tires and those without a significant tread depth difference.

Additional Tire Maintenance Tips

  • Tread Depth Difference: Rotate tires immediately, regardless of mileage if the tread depth difference between any two tires exceeds 1.5mm (2/32 in).

  • Rotation Pattern: Except for directional tires, rotate tires left to right as well as front to rear for even wear distribution.

  • Regular Maintenance Benefits: Regular tire maintenance not only extends tire life but also improves traction and stability, enhancing overall driving performance and safety.

Using Extra Trips for Custom Tire Rotation Tracking

For Tesla owners seeking more detailed tire rotation tracking, Extra Trips offers a solution. With Extra Trips, users can create custom tire rotation trip meters, allowing them to break trips down into segments to track each rotation individually. This feature provides a comprehensive approach to tire maintenance, ensuring optimal wear patterns and maximizing tire longevity.
