Re: 18 inch versus 20 inch tires

lastly, the wider 20" 431 style rims have a larger patchable area due to the them being wider.

Additionally, folks have install even wider non ecopia tires (Potenzas) on the 431s (maybe 10-20mms wider depending on rim).

Re: Any indicator to other drivers that you're still charging?

take a look at needtocharge app, maybe it'll help.

Re: How often long should I run Rex?

Yes. The maintenance cycle should be enough.

If you feel like it’s not starting/finishing, perhaps 30-60 days out maybe you let rex run.

Re: I3 vs i3s new member

I've driven my i3S with the "S" 20s (style 431) (not the regular 20s iirc 430 ) as well as the 19s (428). Very different feel, I would get a test drive of both models before i decided.
