HRE Flow Form FF15 Wheels + Toyo Proxes 4 Plus Tires
So after the original 19" wheel test using the OEM Golf R wheels/tires... I pretty much had given up hope of great looking larger wheels that wouldn't absolutely kill the EV range on the e-Golf. I actually went back to the OEM e-Golf wheels/tires because the 19" Golf R wheels/tires made the car pretty much unusable in terms of range.
But then, I decided it give it one more shot with some lightweight 19s... HRE's new FlowForm brand uses flow-forging to build a super-strong and lightweight wheel. The FF15 design not only looks amazing on the new MK7 platform, even when paired up with very wide 255/30 Toyo Proxes 4 Plus tires... my range is barely affected. This says a lot about how lightweight the FlowForm wheels are when compared to OEM wheels... especially since the tires are 255 versus the 235 on the OEM Golf R.
The OEM Golf R wheels had a hit of around 30 miles of range... and from the few weeks of driving on the FlowForm/Toyo combination, it seems to impact the range only by about 15 miles. Not a bad compromise for stunningly good looks!
Thank you HRE Flow Form and Toyo Tires!
