Just make sure they are rated for SAV EV use...Just one such winter tire/wheel possibility (not aero in this case, but light weight)

Sometimes with German cars the factory winter setup is the best deal, better even than TireRack. For BMW i3 that is the case. If I were in a cold state I would wait for the winter set from VW before buying any random set.
I have a call into the dealer parts department to see what they can do on a winter wheel / tire setup, but first they have to fix my car. Not pulling the trigger quite yet.Dealership tires in general and dedicated Winter wheel sets have indeed improved their cost competitiveness in the past half dozen years or so in the USA.
No, I think its the guys at Edmunds doing that test who made that mistake. Nothing to do with VW. They don't give enough info to tell what they used to calculate, I was just pointing out how their numbers don't add up and their testing methods are not very good.Do you really think VW engineering is bunch of dummies.

Yes, but which steel wheels from the bone yard? I've yet to see a "steel" offering in a 19" or 20." Everything I've seen is alloy.Just make sure they are rated for SAV EV use...
There will be offering better than this...
Steel wheels are still best for winter use...unless it is something you will not consider.
And getting hands on set from junk yards would be best money spent.
