If you need to save range, perhaps try a set of performance wheels. The stock wheels are about 21 pounds each. I have a set of aftermarket ones (and there are others) that are in the 12-pound range. Saves rotational and unsprung mass.
Agree. Except that the stock 17" wheels appear to be a good bit heavier. I haven't been able to confirm yet, but will do so after tomorrow, when we mount the stock Michelins to our new wheels. The stock wheel + tire assembly weighs about 46#, implying a wheel weight closer to 25# if the specs on the Michelins is accurate.
When the Michelins have worn out, I'll be looking for a different energy efficient tire that also has some grip. I had a stoplight change unexpectedly the other day, and got into the brakes hard for the first time under ideal conditions - the car immediately dropped into ABS, and I had to threshold brake to stop in time. Not confidence inspiring. They're really nothing to write home about.
