2 week old Leaf, first post!
Not sure if I should have started a new thread, so I tacked my questions on here, appreciate you comments
Getting ready for my first winter (getting range anxiety after reading winter driving threads)
I commute in lake effect snow (South West Ontario) so snows are needed
Have 2018 SL with 17 alloy rims, will swap out steelies to keep the salt off them
Will have Nissan quote but likely to go after market
I see some tires sites say to go to a 16 inch steel rim, wouldn’t this change speed and distance?
I wasn’t planning on installing TPM but read somewhere that if not present the system won’t let you turn traction control off – can anyone confirm or deny this
I need to rock the car several days in the winter to get unstuck out of snow drifts so I have to be able to turn off the magic
Any thoughts on weight of alloy vs steel and effect on vehicle?
I also see mentions of a pretty severe range reduction with snows – what could be the cause of this (weight, rolling resistance, fake news)?
So far loving it
