Regarding weight. Seems like the stock rim is 30 lbs.Also, is this rim lighter or heavier than the stock rim? Will these affect mileage for good or bad? How will it affect the ride? Sounds like these are wider…. Will that improve the ride?
Sorry if I am asking a lot of questions but I am really interested in new rims but don’t want to compromise mileage. I commute 60 miles one way a day.
Here are the weights for our rims in 19 - inch size:
[AW01] - 19x9.5" - 22.4 lbs. This one is 1" wider and has a 900 kg loading index. So for Mach E, it will be lighter.
[AWzz] - 19x9.5" - 19.4 lbs. This one is 1" wider and has an 800 kg loading index. So for Mach E, it will be a bit lighter.
[AW05] - 19x9.5" - 23.1 lbs. This one is 1" wider and has an 800 kg loading index. So for Mach E, it will be a bit lighter.
Regarding [AW11] and [AW12] we did not make them in other sizes than 22" at this moment and we don't have data for them.
So, here is the answer to your question. You won't see any range decrease even going a bit wider, because the overall weight of the assembled wheel will be less. Also if you get proper tires, the overall diameter should stay almost identical to stock wheels. Most likely you will even get a bit more range, but we need to do real-life tests to provide specific data.
You will see improved ride quality because the unsprung weight of each corner will be less, which affects the right quality a lot.
We are happy to answer as many questions as you have
