Tesla adds Model 3 snow chains for 20″ Performance wheels to online store

Tesla Model 3 snow chains for 20″ Performance wheels have been added to the company’s online store.

The Maggi Trak Sport 214 snow chain is a unique type of self-adjusting and easy-to-install chain that utilizes four clamps and one fixing point for installation. Rather than wrapping the chains around the inner portion of the tire, the outer wheel side of the drive wheels is used as the single fixing point over complex inner side attachments. Excellent traction and durability in snowy conditions are to be expected from the aftermarket addition. Previously, snow chains were only available for Model 3 with 19″ wheels in a dual motor and rear-wheel drive configuration and were produced by a different manufacturer.

Tesla’s store also notes that the Maggi Trak Sport chains are only approved for Model 3 Performance 20” wheels and Tesla-approved 235/35R20 tires. Additionally, they should only be installed on the rear wheels. For $290, the snow chain package includes a nylon protective bag, one pair of chains, and an installation guide, and delivery is anticipated to take 2-3 weeks.

According to the manufacturer, the self-adjusting nature of the Maggi Trek snow chains ensures a perfect grip between the chain and the tire tread. The gripping unit design has a smaller profile that won’t compromise the minimal space between the outer tire and inner wheel well, resulting in a safe and quiet drive. The Maggi Trak Sport snow chain system is also available for the Model S.

Peace, love and the re-creation of the Woodstock van

Back in 1969, the owner of a 1963 Volkswagen Standard Microbus asked artist Bob Hieronimus to paint the vehicle, which would transport one of the bands performing in 1969 at the Woodstock Art and Music Fair. At Woodstock, the van was featured in an Associated Press photograph and became an icon, even appearing in the liner notes of the official Woodstock record album.

“The bus is really about being one people on one planet,” Hieronimus said in a news release after a three-year project to recover — and later to re-create — restore and repaint the famed “Light” bus, which came to symbolize Woodstock and the Summer of Love.

“On every side of the bus is a story — many stories — and the stories all point to unification, working together and a higher conscientiousness, which is what Light really is all about,” Hieronimus said.

The new “Light” van is the result of a three-year endeavor by Canadian documentarian John Wesley Chisholm and Hieronimus to re-create the van ahead of Woodstock’s milestone anniversary in mid-August in upstate New York.

“It’s a time machine that takes people to the past, through the present and to the future,” added Chisholm, who also worked with Volkswagen of America and the greater VW enthusiast community on the project.

The completed van was unveiled this past weekend at the Orange Country Transporter Organization Winter Meet in Long Beach, California, which served as the starting point for a cross-country tour that will take the van to the festival’s 50th anniversary celebration this summer.

According to the VWoA news release, Hieronimus and Chisholm hoped to located and restore the original “Light” bus. However, after six months of searching, they decided instead of create a replica. A Kickstarter campaign helped fund the acquisition of the same model, though the vehicle was in need of extensive restoration.

After the bus was restored, Hieronimus and five other artists spent six weeks re-creating his original paintings on the vehicle.
