Continental, Hankook? What is model number? Interesting to see if it is a generic tire already being sold here and how it rates on tire websites. Self sealing? Rolling resistance? Do Pro and Pro S have same tire? They do have different wheels, so will VW de-content the Pro further and give it lesser tires than Pro S? Wouldn't think so. Does ID.4 come with some emergency tire inflator?

Forgot to ask. Speed rating is probably T, but what are traction and temperature ratings?

Nowhere on my Bridgestone Alenza Sport All Season does it indicate Run Flat. Typically RF tires are labeled as such. And also typically if Run Flat equipped there is no compressor/goop provided as not needed.

Run Flat tires are also more roll-resistant than regular tires and so not typically provided on EV's to increase range.

Bridgestone Alenza Sport All Season Run Flat on FE edition.
Btw: there is of course an "Outside" labeling on the tire but no directional symbology so I'm free to rotate side-to-side on the same axle. (y)

Are the tires DIRECTIONAL? If they are, they can't even be rotated left and right.

The Bridgestone run flats are labeled “RFT”, does anyone have a photo of a sidewall?

My dealer also said that they were run flats, but haven’t verified that.

Thanks for info. Do the tires also say Alenza on them? And there is no directional arrow, right?

I just saw a video on U-Tube from BryceLovesTech (I think that was the name) that came out a few hours ago from Florida. Yeah, you can make out the words "Bridgestone Alenza" on the tire if you replay it a few times. I can find Bridgestone tires on the web with Alenza in the model name, but there are a lot more modifying words around it and they have higher speed ratings. Don't know much about tires, but I suppose the tires are made for VW ID.4 and weren't previously available. Maybe Bridgestone just modified some tire they already made to meet VW specs? Guessing all 1st Editions come through with same model Alenza Bridgestone tires?

Just checked and my white Pro (not Pro S) is updated to leaving factory! How long did your car take from leaving factory to taking delivery?

It's taking 1 - 1.5 months. It could be a little quicker if your car is immediately sailing and you live in a north eastern state.

Bridgestone does make an RFT version of the Alenza Sport A/S, but unless it's very clearly marked as such (pic attached of RFT designation next to the Alenza name on the sidewall), it's a regular non-RFT tire. I would honestly be very surprised if it's the RFT version, as I don't know of any EV's that come with RFT tires because they're heavy and not great for rolling resistance relative to a non-RFT tire.

Not directional
Does your FE show the real time tire pressure in each tire on one of the displays? That's one thing I like about my '17 Bolt. Usually have that display on when I'm driving.
