    Like all things, there are pros and cons with upgrading to a Plus 1, 2, or 3 wheel & tire combo.

    For me, the pros far outweigh the cons.

    Plus 2 = 17"
    Plus 3 = 18"

    Looks nice and Enkei make good quality wheels, OEM for a lot of manufacturers.

    Any idea on the weight of the Vulcan wheel? I don’t see any weight spec online.

    They look real good !

    I bet they handle great and I'm sure your Prime now feels like a much sportier car.


    EDIT: Give us an update as soon as you get a few hundred miles on them.

    I was finally able to drive the last couple days. I’ve gone from 5k+ miles a month to <400 since March. I went on a 600 mile round trip Tues-Wed. The car feels much more in control on curves and at speed. I really like the way it feels. Fuel economy looks to be down about 10%.
