Niro Wheels

Post by Jenner » Fri Feb 01, 2019 6:58 am

Hello

I have preordered the e-niro. I have been looking at 18" alloy wheels from the plug-in version of the Niro. Will these fit the e-niro?

Actually, the plug-in version comes with 16" wheels. The 18" are standard on the 4 and an option on the others. The 16" are an option on the 4, giving significantly improved MPG. So, all the wheels on the hybrids are fully interchangeable. Although the 18s put more rubber on the road, the diameter (wheel + tyre) is the same as the 16s, so the speedo doesn't require recalibration.

The E-Niro comes with 17" wheels - presumably a compromise between grip and range. I think it unlikely that they will have changed anything to to make them incompatible, but I don't think we know enough about the EV variant yet to know for sure.
