Hello everyone, I got my E-up a few weeks ago and I got some new 17inch wheels for it.
205/40/17 on 7.5inch wide rims.
Weight added is 8kg/per wheel
132555

Diameter remained the same but since they are wider, it lifted the car 2cm off the ground which is a bonus since it's very low.
Braking distance is 2m better than before from 100kmh.
Aceleration went up to 11.4sec 0-100kmh as opposed to 10.65sec that I got before with the stock wheels

The car slowed down quite a bit and the consumption went up by roughly 20%
And regenetive braking was negatively affected as well, it is about 4% less than with the original wheels.
The new wheels

20% is huge, I'm amazed at how much of a difference it makes. They do look fun however.

Agreed - I'm also surprised that it is that much just for a 20mm raise and 40mm extra width. The downsides strike me as a lot to pay for good looks.
