Hyundai Nexo Wheel Options

Sorry to say but i'm just not a fan of the wheels shown in most marketing material and on Hyundai's website. We're still waiting for a configurator to launch and my hope is it'll reveal another option or 2. Even if it means paying hundreds more then i'm all for it. Even different finishes will help. A darker finish can hide what i see as flaws. If not i'll do it myself or go completely aftermarket.

What does everyone else here think about these wheels and would suggest to someone not in favor of them?

I'm not a big fan of the style either but hopefully they are at least lightweight? I've seen many new EV owners go with an aftermarket alloy setup and increase their range by several miles.

weight doesn't matter to me because in reality it won't move more than the lower double digits, and that's small compared to the vehicles overall weight and systems that contribute more to its range.

Automakers have been playing around with remaking the wheel for decades, and we've seen a host of concepts/designs over the years. They were discussing thermoplastic polymer awhile back that was expected to provide up to 20% gains in range.
