Michael: I don't think anyone makes a 22'' winter tire, so the winter package includes both wheels and tires. In the US, the winter package costs around $6000, still pretty expensive but much less than what you are quoted. Since it is the same car, the US winter package should fit your car.

I have snow tires for my Karma. They make it look suspiciously like a Ford F350.

The only alternative I can think of is to not drive the Karma during the winter. That's my plan, and also why I bought a big ol' pickup to haul the kids and their ski gear around all winter long...

Good one Scott. I had to think about that for a bit. :)

I'm sure you can find 3rd party wheels that'll fit for a lot less than $6,000.
One thing to remember is that you will probably need appropriate tire pressure sensors. I paid about $3,000 for winter tires for my Tesla Roadster. With the larger wheels and tires I would expect somewhat more but 6K does seem a bit high.

Hey, Don A:

I have a deposit on a Tesla Model S from when they first began and there where only options of Signature or not and there was the added production positioning based on being a Roadster owner, designated a S, P, or R respectively. Have you made your deposit since the new updates? If not what did you do to add the Performance package as I am thinking about doing this for my P #95 reservation.

There is no selection needed at this time. My reservation is for a Signature, options will be selected at a later time. That is just the configuration I will select when that time comes.

Or for the $12K cost of the tires @Michael is looking at, you can use @Scott's F350 solution: buy four F350 tires, and they throw in the rest of the truck for that price.

I think the winter rims are atrocious!!! The circuit blade rims have to be among the best design features of the car!
