What tyres does the Ariya come with? Is there a difference because of battery size? Are they designed for EV's or the same as an ICE?
Depends on the wheel size, for the 20” they are fitting Dunlop Maxx 2 which have a load rating of 101. Which is mainly because the car with the 87kWh battery is 2100kgs.What tyres does the Ariya come with? Is there a difference because of battery size? Are they designed for EV's or the same as an ICE?
I’m running on 20” and seeing 3.2 to 3.5kWh/mile at motorway speeds in the current weather. Which seems fine to me! The car configuration on Nissans website changes the ‘expected’ range when you option the 20” wheels, not by 6% mind you.The calculations are somewhat simplistic but the answer is without question. Put the optional 20" wheels on the Ariya and, depending upon your driving style and use, you will give up 5 or 6% range compared to the standard 19" wheels. (20" on e4orce). Add to that the extra capital cost, more expensive tyres, increased noise, less isolation from the road and increased possibility of kerbing the rims and you need to feel really good about how they look to go 20". Tyres are 235/55 R19 & 255/45 R20.
E-4orce Evolve and the deleted Performance model are not comparable as completely different motors. If you want to compare based on wheel size then it is the difference between adding the Sport Pack and not. With e-4orce Evolve with Sport Pack (20s) is 309 miles, without (19s) is 314. Like I said, a drop in the ocean...
Mine has Bridgestone (Advance with 19” wheels)I was surprised to see the Ariya coming out with Dunlop tyres when all marketing and demo cars in both 19 and 20 inch had either Bridgestone or Michelin tyres.
