Wait, you made it 50k miles on the OE tires??? WOW! I'm at 16K and looking at them I'll be surprised if they last much past 20k miles.

My tire thread are low but they are not balled yet... obviously the dealer wants me to get new tires, mom and pop tire shop says i can still drive a some more. I dont want to get new tire.. because I have res for Model 3 which I might get by end of the year since I want the all wheel drive. Another reason may be my OE tire lasted this long, other then rotate every 10K miles, I constantly drive on cruise even on local street and and slow the car down by taking off the cruise instead of breaking.

as long as you can stick a penny in your tread (upside down) and not see the top of Lincoln's head, you're GTG...

You may have battery fade and you might not know about it. Have you reset one trip meter and done a battery run down test?

I just passed 30K on the OEM tires, and I've got plenty of tread left. I'm thinking I'll get 50K out of mine......

No I have not done a run down test, not sure how do it do it? do I just keep the car running with heat on and see how much of power was consumed when it dies off?

Yeah. Just charge it and reset one of the trip meters on the left side display. Open your windows and turn the heat to max. Takes about 3 to 4 hours, when the car dies, you'll know how much battery capacity you have. I think the older FFE had 19-20 kWh originally.

What I do is reset my odometer before I'm going to go on a drive that will use the majority of the range. When I get home (hopefully with less than 15 or so miles range remaining), I roll down the windows and turn the heat to max, and let it run until the car dies. Doesn't take nearly as long, plus means that you haven't just used one cycle of your battery without getting the benefit of driving.

You can also estimate your battery capacity by resetting the trip odometer, driving a certain distance (again, hopefully running the battery down quite a bit), then recording the amount of electricity used. Then, one of the screens in Sync will show a % remaining of the battery. A bit of math, and you can calculate your total battery capacity. I've found doing this results in a bit higher battery capacity; the last time I did that, I got a bit over 17 kWh, whereas the run-down test showed only 16.7.
