thanks for the tip. I'm running an after market wheel, bought pre any attempt to ecomod. Been looking at some other options so thanks for the mini coop tip. Hoping to go tall and thin, similar, yet drastically smaller, to a BMW I3. Saw one on the highway, never seen a wheel/tire set up like that before.
