Sorry to post this twice, but this is likely a better thread for what I am asking ----
At this point, I think I'm debating the EVO1+ wheels (18/8.5 size) vs the martian 18/7.5 wheels for the winter tire set on my M3P
The EVO1+ wheels with their aero covers would give more range than other non OEM18in wheels, due to the covers, however the EVO1+ wheels seem to come in only one width, the factory 8.5 in.
I wonder if the additional 16lbs of weight loss comparing the weight of the EVO1+ to the Martian 18/7.5 in wheels in combination with running a more narrow tire on the Martian 7.5in wheels, such as a 225, instead of the stock 235 I would need to use on the 8.5in width EVO1+ wheels, might mean that the martian wheels provide equal or superior range gains compared to the one size 18/8,5 inch EVO1+ wheels with aero covers, running the stock 235width tires??
EVO1+ 18/8.5 (only size) wheels with aero covers are clearly superior to the martian wheels for aerodynamics, however......
Martian 18/7.5 wheels win in weighing 16 lbs less per set, and the 225 tires on the 7.5in wide Martian wheels have less rolling resistance than 235 on EVO1+
What are peoples thoughts on that comparison????
One other issue is that the martian wheels are out of stock for 6-8 weeks and no one answers the phone or my emails at Martian, while the fastwheel distributor for EVO1+ wheels has been very prompt with answering my questions. Martian doesn't seem to have much customer service.
