The Tesla Model 3 Performance is an exceptional performing vehicle, it's fast, fun, and full of new tech. I took my Model 3 for a 2,000 mile road trip, and on that journey, all was going well. That is, until we hit a pothole. If you can believe it, a single pothole cost over $2,600 to fix, and required 7 hours of time from start to finish, leaving the Tesla service center.

While Tesla isn't to blame here, low profile tires are becoming the new trend, and they're not any good in my book. They're expensive, heavy, and cause ride quality to suffer, all for what some feel is improved aesthetics, and perhaps some slightly more responsive steering. But the Model 3 Performance only offers one wheel size, so tires with less than 2 inches between the wheel and the road are the only option. Do any of you have low profile tires? How has your experience been?

Thanks for watching everyone! Lots of pothole fans, this is great! I try not to have a negative vibe in my videos, but I think some frustration probably shined through in my tone on this one. Hope everyone is having a wonderful, pothole-free day!

legit EXACT same crack happened to me with the EV Wheel Direct Wheels, the tire somehow didnt blow though, the pothole was unavoidable

Not showing the pothole??

235 is not a narrow tyre

I live in Illinois where's the pothole so I can avoid it.

You could have bought two Mac pro monitor stands

If you only lived in Puerto Rico😂
There are at least three potholes per road

A similar issue occurred for me at a Subaru service center. No Subaru Service Center seems to stock the tires that come with the 2018+ STis. Nor do they stock the rims that come with those cars. I had to leave on bent rims and tires off of a lot vehicle. Thankfully, World Subaru of New Jersery agreed to give me some tires off a lot vehicle... but I ended up needing to repair all 4 tires and repair 3 rips anyway. So all-in-all that was about a $2,500 bill as well. Thankfully, that was only the tires, labor, and alignment. I had purchased a “no-questions asked wheel warranty” when I bought it and the repairs to my wheels (including unrelated curb rash) were done free by a local wheel repair facility.

I am safe, I am on 15 inch.

So you changed 2 tires on the right side and left 2 tires with 25k miles on the left side!? You should have put the 2 old tires in the front and the 2 new tires in the back and maby the alignment wouldn't be necessary...

I got rid of the low profile wheels on my last car and replaced with ones 3" smaller. Much smoother ride, better mpg and tyres choose half the amount!

Well worth it.

In many states, you can actually file a claim to get your repair bill for a pothole, if you report it. Check the state's rules. You would have to know exactly where the pothole was.

Opinion counts for nothing 😭 lmao

Never buying a Tesla. Thanks
Also reminder to everybody GET THE EXTENDED WARRANTY! GET WHEEL AND TIRE COVERAGE! Saves your life.
Gar Manarnar
all the prices seem totally reasonable and i bet you'd be paying still at least half that on a car half that price if you fucked up two tires and two rims
Tim S
You should have your city or state pay for the damage. I live in Michigan ( the land of potholes) and I have heard of people doing that and winning.

I bought Mercedes c and e with 40 profiles in 18 inch.first mod was putting 17 inch with 50 profiles ,slightly big in diameter,but saved me thousands.

You aren't Jason. This video isn't started with hello everyone and welcome

If it's pulling to the right and needed a wheel alignment, let me suggest something else is BENT and needs to be replaced.

Electric Car Road Trips - Everything You Need To Know

Are EVs practical for long distances? - Sponsored By AutoTempest

I drove my Tesla Model 3 from Idaho to Michigan, about 2,000 miles, to find out what it's like to road trip in an electric car. The Tesla Model 3 Performance has an estimated 310 miles of range, so I packed it up with a friend and drove across the country. This video will cover many of the questions surrounding electric car road trips.

Questions include: What kind of realistic range will you get on a single charge? How far can you travel in one day? How much time does it take to recharge an electric car? How much longer is an electric road trip versus a gasoline road trip? How much does an electric road trip cost? How do you know where to charge your electric car? What does Tesla do well for road trips? What about driving a Tesla sucks on a road trip? How useful is Tesla's supercharger network, and how does it work? How can you handle range anxiety during an electric drive? How comfortable is a Tesla over a long distance?

Overall, the video serves as an in depth look at everything related to driving an electric car significantly further than the vehicle's range on a single charge. Enjoy!
