You can find photos of the wheels in this album in the Photo Gallery. Here is a photo of a car with winter wheels on it, also from the Photo Gallery:Can someone please post a picture of there Karma with the winter tires on it?!?! I want to see how it looks with the winter rims on it???
Strobe. my good man!! Your photo in the snow doesn't make me wonder about the Fisker in Winter, but it certainly makes me respect anyone who can live through those conditions and not hibernate! Yes, I am a thin-blooded California guy, and although have spent much time in Alberta, that white-out picture makes me want to just stay at home warming my hands around a roaring Tesla fire!Here are a couple of pics from last winter.
The other is that with the lovely flaring of the rear wheel well that adds so much to the look of the car, the front part of the wheel well catches all the gravel thrown up my the front wheels. I put a 3M plastic there and it was shredded in only a couple thousand km. The paint is completely speckled there now and so I am looking for other options for protecting this area.
I am located in Southern Alberta and bought my Fisker on Dec. 7, 2013. I have almost 23K km on it and it is my daily driver. My car was TERRIBLE with the stock 22" Goodyear F1's. Could barely take a corner at all and got stuck on a 1 degree incline in the snow. Very embarrassing to be driving such a fine vehicle and can't get through an intersection. I have a set of aftermarket 21" rims with the Yokohama W-drive tires and it is like night and day. The car is heavy and so pushes the snow tires into the snow and ice and it sticks a lot better. I would agree with the previous comments about still having to be respectful of the conditions but it is significantly improved. I have noted a couple things with winter driving: My HVAC system can't keep up with the extreme cold. I have had my car out in temperatures colder than -30 Celcius and it gets a little chilly in the cabin. Maybe just my car, hard to say. (Interestingly, seems to do OK when the defrost is on so maybe it is just a sensor problem.) The other is that with the lovely flaring of the rear wheel well that adds so much to the look of the car, the front part of the wheel well catches all the gravel thrown up my the front wheels. I put a 3M plastic there and it was shredded in only a couple thousand km. The pain is completely speckled there now and so I am looking for other options for protecting this area. If you want a pristine car, don't drive it in the winter. If you want a beautiful car that will get you through most driving conditions, enjoy all winter and be prepared for some wear and tear on your car.
Couple of other points: Battery range goes down by about 20 percent. Combination of increased draw from heating system and decreased capacity of the battery in cold weather. I can get about 65 - 70 km on a charge in the summer and this drops to 45 - 50 km in the winter.
Also, the anti-slip system works really well!!!
