I see a guy on PriusChat who bought the WRG4 in 2018 and liked it. Says a Leaf owner reviewed them as better than the stock Leaf tires. Seems like something to consider. Thx. Clearly, in Europe, Nokian LRR tires rate with the best of the best (Michelin and Bridgestone LRRs). What that says to me, imprecisely, is they are worth trying here in North America.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
