I have been exploring the options in repairing my mistake of purchasing the 22" Onyx wheels! At $6500, I am losing 10-15% range and the frequency of changing the tire is not acceptable!
Many mentioned it is the weight of the Onyx wheels is causing the extra energy but I just saw the 22" wheels weight is 37.6lbs front, 40.4lbs rear.
The weight of the 20" wheels is 32lbs for the front and 33.2lbs rear!!!
Really? only 5-7 lb differences per wheel will cause such degradation in energy consumption??
20" SCORPION ZERO ALL SEASON Tires are approx 32-33 lb.
22" SCORPION ZERO ALL SEASON PLUS tires are approx 33-36 lb
total weight differences between 20" vs 22" config are only 66lb vs 76lb (rear) 64lb vs 70 lb (front)
TOTAL WEIGHT difference is only 32LB that causes 10-15% degradation in the range does not make sense!!
am I missing something??
