Tire size
(front and rear)
235/55R19
255/45R20 (available as an option)

Above are the specs for the factory Ariya wheels and tires.

19" and 20" wheels look great, but that is a large wheel and tire package.

I know I will achieve longer range and a more comfortable ride if I downsize the wheels and tires to some other Nissan wheels, like a set of 17" wheels with a thicker sidewall.

But I have two concerns.

1) Weight - there is only a range increase if the new wheels I choose are lighter, whether they are aftermarket or factory. Does anyone know if the factory Ariya wheels are forged or if they are particularly lightweight already?

2) Brake clearance. Probably not a big issue because most EVs have smaller friction brakes than gas vehicles, but when downsizing wheels you have to check to see if the new wheels will clear the brakes.

If the size of the spare tire does not match your car, maybe you can consider installing wheel spacers. If using wheels without cavities, the standard studs should be shortened so that they do not extend beyond the height of the spacer. I had BONOSS wheel spacers on my car for almost 21,000 miles, with no issues whatsoever.

They can customize the thickness and data that I want, so that I can install new tires with different data, and the customization time is very fast, just 1~3 days.

Here is an article which introducing spacers.
Hope this helps.
