    I live in the north country so winter tire is a must. Looking at the Aptera, the 2 front tires is just regular tires and rim so that's easy. But what about the rear tire? Does it use a regular tire and some kind of special motorcycle rim? Is it easy to replace that rear tire myself or do I need any special equipment to replace it? Thanks

    From what we've been told by Aptera, the current plan is for all three wheels to be identical. There has been some discussion, though, that the rear tire might be wider, especially on the AWD variant.

    This is an image of the second prototype being trucked from the body manufacturer in Reno, NV, to final assembly at the San Diego, CA, headquarters. It's a FWD version so you can see the rear wheel clearly.
