custom tires wheels, use motorcycle wheels?
This is a multipurpose post, I am interested in a "what if" type scenario where motorcycle tires are used as opposed to much wider/heavier street tires. The object off most EV's is economy, so since performance realistically isn't an issue then.......
so how do I go about putting these types of rims/tires on a standard car? what are the benefits/risks of doing so? rather do the benefits out weigh the risks? at only about 3" per tire of road contact road friction is reduced substantially, as well as rotational mass, and drag "tires are narrower and round", the tires would wear more quickly depending on the conditions, and driving in inclaimant weather would not be good for insurance premiums. any thoughts?
A lot of money first. A good light weight vehicle. 9" motor, Soliton1, Synkromotive controller, Warp Drive Controller, Zilla Controller. A large pack of lithium batteries. 45 kWH at least. A good charger and lots of money. Oh, and more money. It will be expensive. You won't be able to do that with Lead Acid batteries. PETE
Most of the other stuff is minor compared to the car, motor, controller and battery pack.
