Hi all, as you know the standard wheel size will be 20" with option for 22", normally the range increase when the wheel size is smaller like 19" or 18" but those sizes are for now not available in the configuration. I don't know if the range from Fisker is calculate based on 20" if so it will mean that smaller size will increase the range, that's would be good for winter season with maybe 18" winter rim. Anyway a big rim on the snow or ice will have a planing effect. A friend on me has a Tesla Y sport with big wheels and he cannot reduce the size for winter because the galiper size. On the other side the look would be not great so I think that I will get 20" for summer and 18" or19" if possible for winter.

Sounds like a great plan!
20" wheels with Bridgestone summer tires
19" winter wheels with true winter only rubber

btw, we Canadians (and other cold winter regions) will lose between 30-40 % of driving range during the Winter Months (Dec, Jan, Feb & Mar)*

Does your M3 have a heat pump? I feel like I heard some do but I thought that was only newer models. If the Ocean is equiped with one I think we can expect less range loss in the cold.

The short answer is NO heat pump.

Delivery happened quicker than I originally anticipated....

You, Blu, are a true early adopter. Very impressive!

While on the subject of wheels, are the 22" a no cost option? I put the 20s on my form, but if 22s are no cost, I'd prob opt for those. The tri-blade thing is very cool.... But it would hurt range.... Ohhhh decisions decisions.

My understanding is the black 20” wheels are standard on Sport and Ultra. I thought I saw that the 22” wheels were a $1,000 option. (I could be making that up….)

I got my Model 3 on May 17, 2018. Pretty similar timing. Yes, I wish mine had a heat pump and the slightly larger battery pack that the new ones have.

As far as wheel options go, the smaller the wheel, the better the range. I'm not crazy about the 20" wheel looks, but if it is standard, I'll deal with it. It will be interesting to test efficiency with different wheel options.

Hopefully Fisker should advise later on the range based on different wheel sizes, to follow.

I do notice the kW consumption difference between my 18" stock Tesla wheels and the 19" forged (and lighter) wheels.

My guesstimate is a 10% loss from 18" to 19"....
maybe I should install the smooth hub covers onto the 18's....Nah!

I stand corrected....my consumption difference is 6%
accordingly to this accompanying chart (331 km to 311 km)

I get about 5% more miles with the aero covers on my 18" wheels. Granted, that is at highway speeds.
