I think the 19’’ ones seem to go better with the soft curves of the car, rather than the angular design of the 20’’ wheels. They also allow for more tyre, which improves the ride comfort. And they are more efficient regarding range on a charge. Agree with you, they should be harder to clean, tough. Anyway, those are the ones I choose.

I’ll take 25 miles of additional range + a more comfortable ride all day long with the 19” rim. I have no idea why EV manufacturers keep trying to maximize rim size, to largely make the range and ride of the vehicle worse.

Plus a larger sidewall means less likelihood of ugly “curb rash” on your rims.

The look of the 20" is is not greater than the increase in range of the 19"...speaking mathematically.
Hahaha Yes, you are correct! The "looks" factor, which is generally perceived by some as being proportional to wheel diameter, has been overtaken by the decrease in tire aspect ratio (negative effect on looks factor -- suggests "street racer" or possibly even worse, "dope peddler"! 😆). In addition, there are the factors mentioned by others such as curb rash!

Im not going to argue about the ride quality of a lower profile tire but I did want to point out that the 20 inch Dunlops are also wider, not sure if the 20 inch rim is wider.
235x55 vs 255x45. The range difference is due to the weight of the rim.

My Platinum Plus is ordered with the 20"s

I wonder if it is not just the weight of the larger rims, but also other model trim weight differences (AWD vs FWD, etc.)?

View attachment 837 vs View attachment 838

Which one do you prefer, and why?
I definitely like the 20" wheels. Our 19" hub caps are copper color, not gray. What country are you from?

I plan to keep my 19" tires and upgrade to aftermarket wheels. However, most aftermarket and OEM wheels are 19" x 8.5". Current wheels are 19" x 7.5" or 20" x 8". Does anyone know if 19" x 8.5" will fit in the Ariya without any type of modification?

The copper color hub caps are only for Premiere version. The remainder 19 inch wheels come with grey. Please see the link below. I have seen the grey 19inch wheels in ride events.

I think it's more likely increased drag and rolling resistance from the wider tires. Also they are two completely different tires, so the compound of the wider one could have higher rolling resistance. I'm guessing the design of the 20" wheels is less aerodynamic than the 19" as well. But rotational mass probably isn't a big factor.

Ok. Thank you! I can live with the 19" gray hubcaps for my Pearl White Evolve +. I am not too excited about copper color hubcaps. The copper color hubcaps would look odd on white SUV.

Portugal. Here I can only get those 20'' with a sport pack, which includes leather interior. I prefer the black one (half leather, half alcantara) so i'll keep the 19'' ones.
