Wheels for EVs and Winter Tires

From EV-olution.

Can you use any winter tire on an EV? Is there an advantage to getting a wheel designed for EVs? Are some wheels made for winter use? Fast Wheels is a Canadian company!?! Yes, it is! I answer these and many other questions in this video. I bought new Fast EV wheels for my Kia EV6 for winter use, and I bought winter tires. If you want to know why I chose these specific wheels and tires, and if you want to know more about Fast because they offer more than just wheels, then this video is for you.
