    Abarth 16" wheels weigh 18.3 lbs. my 15" konig dial in weigh 10.9lbs for $103 a piece and you can get 15"RPF1 9.8lbs for $215 each.

    Bringing this back from the dead.

    I have had my 17" abarth wheels on for about 5 days. On my daily commute I have seen a drop from 4.5-5.0 mi/kwh to 3.8-4.0 mi/kwh. I expected a little drop but 20+% is nuts. I am back to the drawing board and likely going to lightweight 15's.

    Have anyone else with 17's seen that crazy of a drop in range?

    Not that big of a drop. Keep in mind that tire circumference is a factor. Usually a switch to a 16" or 17" increases your tire height/circumference, which the car cannot take into account in mi/kwh. Wheel/tire weight is a factor, but it is a small factor. The biggest factor is the usual change to a wider tire, which has a considerable effect on aero drag. If you change wheels/tires, the only reliable range change metric is the remaining battery percentage after driving a fixed course, before and after the change.

    I went slightly taller thank stock. I basically have two routes I can take on my daily commute and traffic is typically pretty consistent. I am hopeful that there were possible other factors that killed my range the past few days like a headwind or tire pressure. Im going to bump the pressure up a few psi and drive a few more days with this setup. If its still this bad I am pulling them off and simply going back to 15" light wheels.

    My work commute is 40 miles one way and I typically consume 45% heading to work and 50-55% heading home. Ill gauge the rest of the week and see how it goes

    It's not the wheel size but using tires that aren't low rolling resistance. I had a 10%-20% drop switching to Yokohama S Drive tires, on the 15" OEM wheels. Highway range dropped only a little but in-town range fell drastically.

    Sticky tires will definitely reduce range, as will wider tires. If you combine both together, you're in for a pretty stiff efficiency penalty.

    I'd love to dress up our 500e with some fancier wheels, but I'm not willing to sacrifice its range in order to bling it up a bit.

    well that's the other factor that's perplexing me.

    I had the car for 2 days before installing winter tires which are horrid for rolling resistance. Ive been able to average 4.5 to 5 mi/kwh WITH winter tires. I went straight from winters to my 17's.

    When I put the 205 Direzzas on the range indicator scared the crap out of me. It wasn't real though, I ended up going more or less as far as before.

    I would stay away from "Wobble" bolts if possible. Most of the larger wheel and tire companys don't recommend them at all. I went to 17" Mallory 4s with the 4X98mm pattern, running 205 45 Michelin A/S Grand Touring series tires. These are great drivers, but I I found my range has taken a drastic dive. I don't mind around town, but round-trips of 35 miles each way are cutting it very close. I need more research on this, and may end up dropping to a 195 series and getting back close to the overall circumference of the dinky little 15-inchers.

    If anyone else here has some experience with this problem, please let me know. Thanks.

    I Would try the original 16" Abarth wheel with the 4x98 bolt pattern and low resistance tyres 195-45-16, range drops a couple %, not dramatically RH-899-T.jpg
