Thanks mate! Anyone else heard anything new regarding 22" all season / winter tyres in other countries? Nothing from Continental yet?

I'd be worried about potholes and flats with 22" snow tires. I'd rather have lots of tire in roads that ice over every year. That's just me. Flats are no fun in the snow.

Jaguar i-Pace FE Photon Red 20" wheels, "Leaper"
Two Chevrolet Volts in service
24.2 kW x 480v 3ph solar array self-installed.

I will have a dedicated set of 18 wheels for my snow tires. 235-65 18. Narrower tire with higher sidewall is the way to go for winter tires.

I don't want to start a discussion since I know there are many different opinions on this matter, but I don't see why 22" should get more flats than 18". Also there are split opinions on whether broader or narrower is best on different winter conditions. On snowy roads I think narrow is better, but you also have to remeber that this is a heavy car so the tires will get pushed hard through the snow. When breaking more surface equals better grip as long as you have good tires. And the width difference isn't that massive?

22" wheels give tires less room to deform before hitting metal, damaging the rim on bigger impacts and increasing chances of a flat. They're not all quick flats, but wheel damage is far more likely. We're getting 20s with the FE, but I'd prefer 18s for normal driving, even in a canyon. A race track is a different story.
