I'm a new owner of a 2017 500e too (Jan.23, 2020). I bought it to keep the miles off my new Subaru Crosstrek, and to commute to work sometimes (58 mile round trip). It's way more fun, quieter, and comfortable to drive than I thought it would be. It's very solid and substantial feeling. It had less than 15K miles on it and the front tires were worn to the point that decided to start fresh with new tires all around. I bought a set of Yokohama YK740GTX stock size tire from Discount Tires. It's not a LRR model, but I was more interested in a quieter smother ride as well as better handling, braking, and tread life. So far they have lived up to my expectations. I also upgrade the headlights, fog lights, and dome lights to much brighter LED bulbs. It's nice to see a couple of members (Biohazard and cjm1219) in my back yard. I live in the Milwaukie-Oak Grove area.
