    When you start your car on a full charge, how many EV miles are you seeing? Before rims vs after. Also, if your commute is 30 miles roundtrip, I'm guessing you must drive around 50 total miles per day to get that ~110mpg average.

    Found this pic online so obviously not my stats but what should I be looking at to see "how many EV miles"? Screen Shot 2018-08-21 at 12.37.09 PM.png

    Yours may by default be displayed as a % - you can change that to show the actual miles estimated. I think you can also view it in one of the menus on that screen if you keep arrowing down. Surprised you haven't looked at it, I'm fixated on it every day as the car is sooooo much better on ev!

    I had it on percentage which I watched like a hawk but not that I have it on mileage, I can better see how many miles I'm getting out of each EV drive. This pic was taken this morning right after I left the garage on a full charge. Not sure what trip I had selected here to show AVG 999.9 MPG, ha ha ha, I typically have my trip set to standard odometer and Average MPG

    I use 8-10% more EV battery percentage on my 17" wheels versus the stock 15s. It's a big hit considering I don't need to use fuel on my commute, but with 17" wheels I do.

    @burnout8488 - That is about what I would guess I lost by plus sizing to 17". Is it worth it? NOOOO. Do the OEM 15" wheel look like a dumpster fire? YASSSSS.

    Thats crazy considering you have RPF1s! That's the wheel I have my eyes set on too, but specs similar to @Munch's

    Yep, they're pretty light for 17s but the 15s are sooo much lighter. If I had 17" eco tires it'd probably be a bit better though.

    I love how it drives on these tires though, very sharp steering and less body roll.

    OK, everyone in this thread is showing off lager than stock custom wheels mainly for looks. I was looking for winter wheels for snow tires. Went to Discount Tire Direct online, and got this wheel (MB Icon) with Michelin Xice Xi3 for less than $500 total (tires, valves, and wheel, including lugnuts, mounted and balanced, shipped free). With sale and rebates, this 15 inch alloy wheel was cheaper than steel wheel and much lighter. Have not put on yet. No snow on ground, though yesterday low temp was down to 32F.

    That looks great, what are the specs on the rpf1?

    Btw: where did you get the window visors from?
