7. Slide the wiper blade down and into the wiper arm to
secure it in place.
If the wipers remain ineffective after cleaning, replace
the wiper blades.
Replacing Wiper Blades
For optimum performance, replace the wiper blades at
least once a year. Replacement blades must meet the
following criteria:
• The blade on the driver's side must be 26 inches (650
mm) long and 21 inches (530 mm) long for the blade
on the passenger's side.
• Ensure the connector on the replacement blade is the

Replacing Cabin Air Filters
Model X has an air filter that prevents pollen, industrial
fallout, road dust, and other particles from entering the
cabin through the vents. Tesla recommends replacing
these filters every 2 years (every year in China). Cabin
filters can be purchased at the Tesla online store.
To replace the cabin filter:
1. Turn off the climate control system.
2. Move the front passenger seat fully rearwards.

How much cargo Model X can carry depends on the
number and weight of passengers. The following
calculated load limit examples assume passengers weigh

so that it is heavier than GVWR or exceeds the
individual GAWR weights.
CAUTION: Never load more than 110 lbs (50 kg) in
the front trunk. Doing so can cause damage.
Calculating Load Limits
CAUTION: Never load more than 176 lbs (80 kg) in
the lower tub compartment of the rear trunk or
more than 397 lbs (180 kg) on the upper floor.
1. Locate the statement “The combined weight of

occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX lbs or
XXX kg” on the “Tire and Loading Information” label.
2. Determine the combined weight of all occupants that
will ride in the vehicle.
3. Subtract the combined weight of the occupants from
XXX lbs or XXX kg (see Step 1).
4. The resulting figure equals the available cargo load
capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount equals
1400 lbs (635 kg) and there will be five 150 lb (68 kg)
passengers in the vehicle, the amount of available
cargo capacity is 650 lbs (1400 - 750
(5 x 150) = 650 lbs) or 295 kg (635 - 340
(5 x 68) = 295 kg).
5. Determine the combined cargo weight being loaded
on the vehicle. That weight must not exceed the
available cargo load capacity calculated in Step 4.
WARNING: Trunks are the preferred places to
carry objects. In a collision, or during hard braking
and sharp turns, loose items in the cabin could
injure occupants.

Wheels and Tires
Understanding Tire Markings
Laws require tire manufacturers to place standardized information on the sidewall of all tires. This information
identifies and describes the fundamental characteristics of the tire. It also provides the tire identification number
(TIN) for certification of safety standards, and in case of a recall.
1
Tire category. P indicates that the tire is for passenger vehicles.
2
Tire width. This 3-digit number is the width (in millimeters) of the tire from sidewall edge to sidewall edge.
3
Aspect ratio. This 2-digit number is the sidewall height as a percentage of the tread width. So, if the tread
width is 205 mm, and the aspect ratio is 50, the sidewall height is 102 mm.
4
Tire construction. R indicates that the tire is of Radial ply construction.
5
Wheel diameter. This 2-digit number is the diameter of the wheel rim in inches.
6
Load index. This 2 or 3-digit number is the weight each tire can support. This number is not always shown.
7
Speed rating. When stated, indicates the maximum speed (in mph) at which the tire can be used for extended
periods. Q=99 mph (160 km/h), R=106 mph (170 km/h), S=112 mph (180 km/h), T=118 mph (190 km/h),
U=124 mph (200 km/h), H=130 mph (210 km/h), V=149 mph (240 km/h), W=168 mph (270 km/h), Y=186 mph
(300 km/h), (Y)=vehicle's top speed (exceeds the "Y" rating).
Specifications
215
Wheels and Tires
8
Tire composition and materials. The number of plies in both the tread area and the sidewall area indicates how
many layers of rubber coated material make up the structure of the tire. Information is also provided on the
type of materials used.

Maximum tire load. The maximum load which can be carried by the tire.
10
Maximum permissible inflation pressure. This pressure should not be used for normal driving.
11
U.S. DOT Tire Identification Number (TIN). Begins with the letters DOT and indicates that the tire meets all
federal standards. The next 2 digits/letters represent the plant code where it was manufactured, and the last 4
digits represent the week and year of manufacture. For example, the number 1712 is used to represent the 17th
week of 2012. The other numbers are marketing codes used at the manufacturer’s discretion. This information
can be used to contact consumers if a tire defect requires a recall.
12
Treadwear grade. This number indicates the tire’s wear rate. The higher the treadwear number is, the longer it
should take for the tread to wear down. A tire rated at 400, for example, lasts twice as long as a tire rated at
200.
13
Traction grade. Indicates a tire’s ability to stop on wet roads. A higher graded tire should allow you to stop your
vehicle in a shorter distance than a tire with a lower grade. Traction is graded from highest to lowest as AA, A,
B, and C.
14
Temperature grade. The tire’s resistance to heat is grade A, B, or C, with A indicating the greatest resistance.
This grading is provided for a correctly inflated tire, which is being used within its speed and loading limits.

Wheels and Tires
Uniform Tire Quality Grading
The following information relates to the tire grading system developed by the National Highway Tra…c Safety
Administration (NHTSA), which grades tires by tread wear, traction and temperature performance. Tires that have
deep tread, and winter tires, are exempt from these marking requirements.
Where applicable, quality grades are found on the tire’s sidewall between the tread shoulder and maximum section
width. For example:
• TREADWEAR 180
• TRACTION AA
• TEMPERATURE A
The quality grades are described next.
NOTE: In addition to the marking requirements, passenger car tires must conform to Federal Safety Requirements.
Treadwear
The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled
conditions on a specified government test course.
For example, a tire graded 150 wears one and a half times better on a government test course than a tire graded 100.
The relative performance of tires depends on the actual conditions of their use, however, and can depart significantly
from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices, road characteristics, and climate.
Traction
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are: AA, A, B, and C. These grades represent a tire’s ability to stop on
wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C
might have poor traction performance.
WARNING: Defective tires are dangerous. Do not drive if a tire is damaged, excessively worn, or is inflated to
an incorrect pressure. The safety of the vehicle and occupants can be adversely affected. Check tires regularly
for wear and to ensure there are no cuts, bulges or exposure of the ply/cord structure.
WARNING: The traction grade assigned to the tire is based on straight-ahead braking tests, and does not
include: acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning or peak traction characteristics.
Temperature
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and
its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
Sustained high temperature can cause the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead
to sudden tire failure.
The grade C corresponds to the minimum level of performance that all passenger car tires must meet under the
Federal Motor Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel
that exceed the minimum requirements.
WARNING: A tire’s temperature grade is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.
Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat
buildup and possible tire failure.
