tires

Recommended Posts

Description:  Add a setting that shows that other tires are used, for example winter tires or original/stock summer tires. In the most advanced you would almost need a complete database with all tires - rolling resistance and including the pressure as well. Most simple implementation, just a check box winter tires and resulting in a slightly higher Wh/km number.

Use Case: (most) Winter tires will have a higher rolling resistance and range will be less.

This is a great idea!

I think not too difficult to implement, I'll have a hack at it when I get some time.  Perhaps a three-way popup selector for rolling resistance: "Low, Standard, High".  Given that the actual rolling resistance coefficient isn't an easily-available specification for tires (at least that I've found), I don't think having a database of all tires is a realistic goal.
