Hi - new to forum - just wanted to know if anyone has tried these tires. Walmart has them for about half of name brands (Continental, Michelin) and they Nokian claims they are engineered for electric cars.
I've seen Nokian promoted on TeslaBjorn's Youtube channel - mostly the snow tires. His emphasis is noise, but I'm interested in efficiency. I'm getting a little better than 4 miles per kWh on my 2016 with Michelin ES, which I believe are OEM. With PG&E electricity currently at $.28/kWh, I'm looking for all the efficiency I can get.
Yep - the rolling resistance of good corresponds to what i found on their website - the EU tyre label shows fuel efficiency of C on a scale of A to G. The Michelin Energy AS has an EU rating of B. Couldn't find a comparable Continental, but the US Continental site shows the PureContact LS as a 9. The Continental TrueContact Tour is a 10. but not made in a size that matches the Volt.
