Subject: Vibration Issue with Tesla Model S Vehicles 

If you encounter a consumer with a vibration issue on Tesla Model S vehicles, model years 2014 thru 2017, dismount and check all 4 tires to see if the tires contain foam. If the tires contain foam, check to see if the foam inside any tire has come loose. If so, replace the tire(s) with loose foam, and return for an adjustment with a return reason of “Loose Foam”, then check the vehicle for vibration. If the foam is intact then follow the below process for match mounting.

 

Why is it Necessary to Match Mount?

When tires are mounted in a random position on the wheel and the wheel is bolted to the vehicle in a random position, the individual components may sometimes be aligned to cause excessive run-out.   Excessive run-out may result in a vibration complaint.  To minimize vibration complaints, you must:

  • Minimize tire/wheel assembly radial run-out.
  • Accurately balance the tire / wheel assemblies.
