5 days away from CT4 build lock and I simply can’t decide between the good looking and more practical CT turbo aero wheels or more unique color matched 21s

Range is important as I have a second home in the mountains 200miles away that I’d like to get to in one shot during winter.

Any experience running 21” blades and likely range at freeway speeds in 30-50F?

it seems we have the same "problem" 220 miles (350Km)

snow tyres/chains only for 20" ? ...better range with 20"

good looking 21", large tyres with less range

so it seems the solution is two sets of tyres
one 21" for summer (no problem for range, good looking, good handling)
one 20" for winter (snow tyres and snow chains and better range)

good news : you don' t have to choose !
depending when you get delivery ...

I have considered that but the extra $$ is putting me off. Might start with 20” on summers and then use them for winter tires when I am comfortable with range and am ready to get 21s. But then it might be too late to get the wheels as I want them….ah decision decisions

My guess is your range might improve by 5-10 miles, but not enough to make any practical difference. Get whatever wheels/tires you like the most.

And you need to consider the change in elevation from your home to your second home.

@Greenmachine: it’s a sin to put 19” on taycan, so go with 21“.
winter tyres? Do you really need them in CA at all?

Exactly! Life is short - get the better looking wheels.
