How Much Do Tesla Tires Cost?

Whether you are looking to buy a Tesla or want to know why the prices are so high, the question “how much do Tesla tires cost” can be tricky. After researching this topic and finding the top three tires for each model of Tesla, we have discovered and formulated the best answer to this question.

The price of Tesla tires depends on the model; expect to pay anywhere between 196.99 and 377.99 USD per tire. The Prices of the tires are as follows:

  • Tesla Model 3 196.99 to 299.97 USD

How Much Do Tesla Tires Cost

Tesla Model Y Tire Prices

The Tesla Model Y has two variants: the performance and long-range models. The performance model uses two different tires, one for the front and one for the back. However, with my resources, we could not find a year-round tire from either Michelin or Continental for the Tesla Model Y performance model.

We only compared two different sizes and only for tires made for year-round use. Below are the tabled prices for the Tesla Model Y Long-Range compared to the two brands’ respective prices.

As seen in the tables above, these two brands only have one size tire for year-round use. Using what resources I had, we could only find prices for the Long-range version. 

If you need to buy new tires for your Tesla Model Y, Long-range, you can expect to pay between 279.96 to 313.99 USD per tire. The Tesla Model Y’s tires are a bit more expensive than that of the Ford F-150, for which you can buy tires costing between 210.99 and 264.97 USD from these two brands.

Tesla Model X Tire Prices

Again, there are two different variants for the Tesla Model X. One variant is called the Tesla Model X Long-Range, and the other is The Tesla Model X Plaid. Both of these variants use different tires for both front and back, and both front and back have different sizes.

Below you will find the price tables for both tire brands split up into different sections for the front, rear, and two different sizes. I only used tires that show as year-round tires and not season-specific tires.

As seen in the tables above, the tires used for both variants of the Tesla Model X are the same. The fact that the tires are the same means that both the Plaid and Long-Range variants’ tires cost between 220.99 and 377.99 USD per tire based on the information we could find from these two brands.

The lowest-priced tires of these Tesla models are within range of that of a standard car like the Ford mentioned above or a 2020 Honda Accord. The Honda Accord has tires that range between 128.99 and 234.96 USD per tire, according to SimpleTire.

Tesla Model S Tire Prices

The Tesla Model S Long-Range and Tesla Model S Plaid are the two variants of the Tesla Model S. Below is a table comparing both of these variants’ tire prices from Continental and Michelin.

The Tesla Model S has the least amount of tires compared to the previously mentioned models. All in all, you will be looking at paying between 278.99 and 355.99 USD per tire. This price is not the highest on this list but is still more expensive than some traditional car tires.


If you are still uncertain about some things or have any related questions, the frequently asked questions below might be of some assistance to you.

Are Tesla Tires More Expensive Than Regular Tires?

Tesla tires can range in price due to the model, tire size, and even the brand. This means that some tires will be more expensive than others. If you buy a well-known brand’s tire for your regular car, you will probably end up paying about the same amount.

How Often Should I Buy New Tesla Tires?

Depending on the brand that you buy, you will need to replace your tires between every 25 000 and 30 000 miles. You should always keep a watchful eye on your tires, and if the treads are wearing thin, you should also consider replacing them.

Can You Buy Tesla Tires On Credit?

Some dealerships will allow you to pay off the total amount of your Tesla tires by asking for a deposit and using debit orders. Buying Tesla tires on credit will usually entail a credit check to see if you are a trusted buyer. 


Though Tesla tires can be pretty costly, they can fall into the same price range as other car tires. Compared to a 2020 Honda Accord and a 2020 Ford F-150, the Tesla tires can be a bit more expensive, but you can walk away without breaking the bank while still having reliable tires if you know which brand to buy.
