Regarding replacing only the rear tires, you may want to read the following which I posted not long ago. The car's traction control system was not very happy.

I also posted the following details in the past about how mixing new and old tires affects the car:

More to the point of this topic, I have 73000 miles on my 2014 i3 Rex.

As of today (Feb. 28, 2021).....My 2014 i3/rex has 153,000 miles on it. Bought used in 2017 with 48,000. Top electric range at full is only 60 miles or so (eco pro +). All said, I have had no maintenance except a replacement 12v aux battery, front brake pads and tires and oil change. Daily commute of 100 miles.

This is great! We're trying to decide whether to keep ours or not but this is encouraging, though the 60 mile charge is discouraging. What was it at it's best? Ours is 2017 and still 160ish full charge in hot weather.

I'm currently at 89K miles for a 2015 BMW i3 REX. Bought used in Sept 2017 at 20K miles and was doing 22K miles/year pre-covid. Since covid and remote work I'm down to 10K miles/year. Despite early dealer overcharges (see previous post), I really like the i3 as a city car (ie. I still do 150 miles/day on rare occasions). Plus coupled with solar, the fuel cost is zero at a time when even hybrids are paying $4.50/gal in places. Warranty has long expired so I'm encouraged to see guys well north of 153K miles on their i3 with no issues.
