Question Winter tires

No manufacturer produces 22 inch winter tires for the I-Pace? Yet? The only 255/40R22 I find are summer tires?

Still I saw an I-Pace with 22 inch wheels on the winter test at the end of a YouTube-video. Does it have summer tires or prototype winter tires?

These cars were fitted with all-seasons tires according to the journalist. And the traction was awesome om snow. At the sneak preview end February this year the I-pace in question was fitted with Goodyear Eagle Sport All Season tires.

Its usually better to downsize your rims/tires for your winter setup as they perform better in the snow. A smaller and narrower tire has better grip and performance in snow or ice. This is both because the smaller tire cuts through snow more effectively and because the weight of the car is focused on a smaller contact area.

It should be possible from a fitment perspective but you have to consider how it can negatively impact ride quality and what it can possibly throw off.

Ok, thank you for this. The Eagle Sport All-Season doesn't have 22 inch though? At least not 255/40 R22 here: https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires...ViewSizesSpecs

I agree with this, but still I wonder what kind of tire they used on the 22 inch rims. Which 20 inch rims and offset will fit on the I-Pace? Same as will fit on F-Pace and XF? I guess you don't have to buy original rims? My dealer said nothing about this.

Why could it negatively impact ride quality? If they are balanced and light weight alloy it shouldn't be a problem?

18" wheels come on the base model, and appear to be the same on the F-pace. You should be able to find some 'take-offs' or aftermarket wheels cheap. 18" gives you better traction, especially if narrower.

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