I am thinking about getting a ForTwo EQ and the car I looked at in the Smart Leeds showroom at the weekend comes with Conti.e.Contact tyres, that are designed for electric vehicles.
Previously we had a Toyota Urban Cruiser and only after we bought it did we find it ran on an unusual type of tyre, normally designed for light vans, and so getting replacements was both more complex and costly. As such when looking a cars since then I always check to see how easy replacements are to source.
I have checked QuickFit, where I normally get tyres, and they don’t stock the Conti.e.Contact tyre.
Are these tyres fitted at standard to all EQ vehicles and if so do people stick with these, if replacements are needed, or change to other tyres? I assume it would be possible to fit a more traditional type of tyre of the same size, but I don’t know what sort of impact this would have in terms of efficiency/range.
