Newbie Tax Question

I am considering a BMW lease and live in LA County (10.25% Tax) but also have a business property in San Bernardino County (7.75% Tax). Could I lease and register the car in San Bernardino County using my business address and then switch it to LA County at a later date to avoid paying the higher tax rate on the monthly lease? Is that even possible? Or should it remain under San Bernardino County? For context my properties are 15 miles apart.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

It will always be taxed at the rate of where it is registered. This will update if you change the registration address.
