    Hey Rob43! First and foremost, thank you for the insightful article you authored on wheels. Your thread was very helpful in finding these beauties. I studied all your points and the first thing I did when I went to a wheels shop was tell them I needed lightweight wheels that wouldn't weigh more than 18 lbs, it narrowed the field extensively.

    To answer your questions:they are wrapped with 225/45. Weight is 21 lbs. Total weight is 39 lbs per wheel/rim combo. It appears I gained around 1 mpg as these are actually lighter than the stock OEM's. These Nurburgrings came with the 54.1 to 72.0 hub rings, so yes, they're installed.

    Did some investigation this afternoon:):

    Here’s what the inside of the throttle body looks like after 8k miles:

    Nice and clean;).

    Then tried to figure out how to route a catch can but the PCV hose appears to be long and the space is tight:

    So I punted for now(y).

    Met with the original seller of my second cord to swap it out:).

    The old:

    The new:

    Since he doesn’t have an electric car (and saw how he sold the old one), he let me keep the old one too:D.

    Now rolling with 3 cords so one will always stay in the car with one plugged in at home and one at work(y).

    That was funny....

    ****************

    I had some leftover lip spoiler, so I drove over and Stole your Prime today. Then I installed my leftover lip spoiler on your hood, it's my
    belief that this will help keep rain & snow off your front windshield while driving faster than 25 mph !!!

    On Thursday I put her in HV mode and switched on the heater than drove 25 or 30 miles.
    I could smell the heated air for about the first 10 miles and opened the windows for 5 minutes to help clean whatever had accumulated in the heating system.
    Our Prime is very seldom switched out of EV.

    OK, after 43 seconds of extremely hard work (kidding), I got my new Lip Spoiler installed !!!

    I installed it in the hatchback cargo area to help with things not falling out after a shopping trip, so far it works like a charm & look halfway decent too.

    Also have our Prime a wash too, as it needed it:eek:.

    Holiday parties out in the ag lands have their pluses and opportunities:whistle:.

    Thanks again @512systems for the parts(y).
