I have a daily 110 mile commute in the Boston area where we get considerable snow. I have heard that the 18” wheels get slightly better range ( not sure if that’s due to the aero caps or size). I have also heard that the 19” are better in snow but am not sure why that would be. My question is, which option would be better for my overall commute. I am partial to the 19” sport wheels in that I think they look so much better on the car. I am not overly concerned about the range hit of the 19’s unless it’s more than 10%. I would like to avoid paying the extra $1,500 for the 19’s and have to get snow tires as well upon delivery in Feb - March 2018 ( I hope). I am a first day reservation holder estimated configuration Jan - March 2018. Maybe I wont be able to configure until March, delivery in April and no worries of snow this year. Then I could save money and buy snow tires for next winter ☃️. Still left with the tire wear and range questions of my daily commute. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
