The brake caliper of the Tesla Model Y is a unique design that utilizes a system known as a fixed caliper. Unlike traditional floating calipers, the fixed caliper achieves more stable and precise braking by transmitting braking force to both sides of the wheel hub.
The system also boasts excellent braking performance and response times, providing outstanding stopping power and braking distances. Additionally, due to its design, the system can reduce the amount of heat generated during braking, extending the life of the brake pads and rotors.
The brake calipers of the Tesla Model Y also feature high-end materials, such as aerospace-grade aluminum alloys and ceramic materials, to improve braking efficiency and reduce the weight of the braking system. These materials also enhance the durability and corrosion resistance of the braking system.
Overall, the brake caliper of the Tesla Model Y features innovative design and high-end materials, providing the vehicle with superior braking performance and reliability.

Installation time: Average installation time is about one hour.
Tools required: Safety glasses, floor jack, wrench (included with set). Note: no special tools, adhesive, or caliper modification required for installation.
Step 1: Identify the appropriate caliper cover to be installed, you have two pieces for the front wheels and 2 smaller peices for the rear wheels. It should not be an issue to distinguish them. Once you are sure that you have the correct calipers covers you can position them accordingly.
IMPORTANT : The installation approach described below is applicable to both front and rear caliper covers (i.e., the fastening approach is identical).
Step 2: All caliper covers must be positioned with rubber cap on the upper end of the caliper and the tubing on the lower end of the caliper.
Step 3: Locate the gap between the break disc and the caliper bracket.
Step 4: Use the fixed buckle on the caliper covers to hook to the caliper bracket. Push the buckle toward the center until it's flush with the caliper bracket side wall.
Note: Make sure the bracket is even on both sides and align the cover center with the caliper center.
Step 5: Move on to second buckle. Locate gap between the caliper and the disc brake. Insert the adjustable buckle and push buckle towards the center until the bolt holes are flush and align.
Step 6: Thread the hexagon bolt through the buckle hole. Then, attach the provided nut to fasten buckle.
Step 7: Tighten the bolt and the nut with the provided tools. Make sure to apply enough force to secure them in place.
Step 8: Before finishing installation, verify that the brake disc protective cover behind break disc doesn't affect the installation of the buckle. If it
does affect installation you can use a flat head screw driver to pry it to the side. You can restore it back in place after buckle is installed.
Step 9: Next, test the installation.
Place tire back in place. Install 2 lug nuts by hand and see if the wheel interferes with caliper cover when rotated. There shouldn't be any metal friction noises.
After confirming that there is no problem. Install remaining lug nuts. Jack down vehicle and complete securing lug nuts with the appropriate tool.
Drive the car at a low speed and check for any interference or rubbing. There should be no scraping sound. Once you're certain there is no interference, installation is completed.
Congrats on finishing the installation!

1.Will the Talsem caliper covers fit with my Model Y wheels?
Yes, our caliper covers fit all versions of Model Y. These custom-fit caliper covers have been designed for optimal fitment for both 19" and 20' Model 3 factory wheels.
Caliper Covers will guarantee brake caliper fitment when utilizing the appropriate Caliper Cover part number specific to the Model y.
2.What if I have aftermarket wheels?
Caliper Covers are designed for a close fit. but if you have aftermarket wheels and would like to determine whether you have enough space, measure from the back of the wheel to the front of the caliper. If you have 1/8" (approximately 3mm) of clearance, then you have enough space.
Another much easier way to test if your wheels are compatible: if you can slide two stacked quarters between the brake caliper and the wheel, then you have enough room to fit our product. Feel free to contact us directly if you have any doubt.
3.Do the caliper covers hurt or help with heat dissipation?
They help. Heat test has demonstrated that caliper covers improved heat dissipation. The Caliper Cover only covers the front of the caliper allowing all heat to escape up through the top of the caliper.
4.Will caliper covers reduce brake dust on my wheels?
Customers report a significant decrease in brake dust after installation of their caliper covers.
5.When using regenerative braking with my Model Y, will brake dust or heat dissipation still be factor?
You'll still use your brakes. But it's true that you'll use your brakes less in a Model y than someone driving a gas-powered internal combustion engine vehicle due to regenerative braking.
6.What about painting my calipers?
You can try painting your calipers but be prepared for a lot of work. First, you'll need to get the whole car up on jack stands. Then you'll have to decide whether to paint them in place or disassemble them. Either way, everything will have to be completely clean or the paint won't stick. If you're painting the calipers in place, you'll need to use a brush, but there will be areas that will be hard to get to. Caliper Covers provide a more convenient and cleaner approach.
7.Can I purchase aftermarket brake calipers instead?
Aftermarket calipers can certainly provide a different look, and, depending on the brand, they might work better than your stock calipers, but the high price point (sometimes thousands of dollars) for aftermarket brake calipers should only be considered if you mainly want an upgrade in brake function.
8.Why not install custom plastic brake covers?
Installing plastic covers on brake calipers is discouraged by many in the industry. The reason: a brake system converts the forward motion of the vehicle into heat by pressing the brake pads against the rotors, the plastic could melt causing your brakes to malfunction. In addition, be prepared to spend time trying to fabricate them to fit, often difficult installation, and, not worth the hassle. And, post-installation, it can be difficult getting them to stay in place.
9.Do caliper covers form-fit to the surface shape of my calipers like plastic brake covers?
No. Our Caliper Covers simply cover what many consider an unattractive part of the wheel.
10.Can the red coating on my caliper covers hold up to the heat?
Talsem Caliper Covers are powder coated for high heat, durability & toughness.
11.To get that "pop" of color, can't I just order red calipers with my Model 3?
At this time, Tesla OEM red calipers can be ordered ONLY with the Performance version of Model y.
12.Are caliper covers removable for brake service?
Yes. Reverse installation to remove, and then reinstall after service.
13.Can I order one with a color of my choice?
Yes. Our caliper covers are available in red , yellow.
14.Does the red used on Performance Caliper Covers perfectly match the Tesla red body paint?
No, the red used for our caliper covers is called “Red Baron.” It is a fairly standard color used by most of the popular big brake companies. Nearly all customers with red cars are perfectly fine with this color. Since the brakes are not against the body of the vehicle, the red being slightly different is not very blatant or obvious. According to our customers, it blends in nicely and looks very sharp. However, this is subjective.
15.Can I install caliper covers myself?
Professional installation is highly recommended. Instructions will be provided with the product for the installer and instructions are also available in digital format under our "Instructions" tab. Note: professional installation of Performance Caliper Covers should take 45 minutes - 2 hours depending on the experience of the installer.
16.Where can I find a professional installer?
In every area, there are competent wheel and tire service centers/shops that have specialty in aftermarket product installation. These installers tend to be the most adept at installs like Performance Caliper Covers. However, it is imperative you ask your installer to follow the instructions provided. Note: although we've had reports of some customers having their aftermarket products installed at a Tesla Service Center, in general, this is unlikely as their policy is not to install aftermarket parts.
17.Do you ship internationally?
Yes! We ship this product internationally.
