I'm located in Austria, and thanks for a great forum (did a lot of research here when contemplating buying our i-MiEV).

Great find!! Those are much nicer looking wheels (IMO) than the factory alloys that came on the North American version of the iMiEV

Don

Are these the factory alloys for the NA version?

That's what was on my i-MiEV from 2017 when I bought it back in November, with all-season tires. I want an extra set with more efficient summer tires, which is why I went looking for wheels. I was extremely lucky to find those alloy wheels on eBay in Germany, because it's not easy to find wheels for the i-MiEV, especially the 15X4. Alloys, new, are very expensive.

They do have a lot of curb rash on them, so I'll try and clear some of it up before the tires go on.

Yes, those are the stock alloy wheels for the 2012 North American SE and SE Premium editions of the iMiEV. The ES model came with steel wheels and plastic wheel covers

Hi Folks,

Cool thread!
I had been planning on buying a spare wheel and tire.
Now I know about the inside wheel diameter issue, and
that our 2008 Honda Fit spare will likely work on Maeve.
Am going to jack her up and test fit.

Thanks and good health, Weogo
