Apparently, I need 2 new front tires after only 20k Kms and I was told by the main dealer that I had to buy 'low rolling residence' tires that cost €120 each or I could lose up to 25% in my range! My local garage says that this is rubbish and I can use any tire on the car. Does anyone know which one is telling the truth? Does anyone have any recommendations for tires for a Leaf? And is it normal to need new tires after only 20k? Thanks.
You CAN use any tire but you will loose some range.
When I had a Prius I replaced the tires with tires not rated LRR. I lost about 5% of MPG.
