In short. Yes.I don't want to hijack your post, but I have a question.
With my Prius, the 16" wheels gave lower CO2 (keeping it free of London congestion charge) and gave it more MPG compared with the version with 17" wheels.
Would smaller 16" wheels on the LEAF, get you further on a charge than with 17" wheels?
There's a visia at nissan Westway Altrincham and that's riding on 16" wheels. I can imagine that will be a hard to shift car when it finally gets registered at some point!I've only ever seen Leaf 40s in Tekna spec, with the 17s.
They already look too small, swamped by the somewhat bulky bodywork.
It must look hellish with 16s.
It's not as if changing to the 16s would give much more sidewall, there's only 5.25mm difference in sidewall height between the 205/55x16 and the 215/50x17.
