Was super surprised to learn about the inside of the Tesla tire and grateful I found a Tire Shop that could help me fix this issue. Hopefully this video helps shops that don’t know how to fix Tesla flats be confident moving forward. Not everyone can get service done at the Tesla Service station.
Acoustically insulated tires were introduced as a result of vehicles generally getting quieter. With the advent of electric cars thanks to trendsetters like Tesla, something as neglected as the noise produced by non-insulated tires become points for improvement. Thus, sound insulating tires started getting more popular.
Tesla’s noise-canceling tires could ultimately be viewed as difficulties by some tire repair centers. Nevertheless, patching up a Tesla’s tire is actually quite simple, as all that needs to be done is to peel off the acoustic foam before covering up any punctures or holes. Once the tire’s puncture is fixed, a simple layer of adhesive to the peeled off parts of the foam should set it back in place.
