It was fairly funny when I was airing down and all the TPMS sensors were going crazy. Then I realized the light load setting existed in another menu!

It's funny how much difference that really makes with the 22s!

The one thing you need to remember to do is change the setting in the dash to Light Load mode for the TPMS. I really like that it has this option.
What great information. I copied this to my deale to do this when mine arrives so I dont have to experience this. Thanks again!!

Actually it was good to experience 'perfectly acceptable' ride on my 22s at the higher pressure despite all the 'warnings' and low expectation, then be even happier with the ride when adjusted for "light load". You would think Jag dealers would be instructed to set pressures at 37 for test drives to optimize the initial I-Pace experience!

I think the car as a whole is still to new for most dealers to "set-up" the best experience. My dealer constantly tells me I know way more about the car than they do.

I saw this recommendation on this thread a while ago, and now went to the lower pressure on my 20" wheels.


I now see an alert that I am at low load 'tyre' pressure in my center gauge area when I start up.


Is this what you also see?

Yea, when I start the car I see a notice letting me know that my tires are set for light load. It goes away right away though. It's more like a reminder.

I went for the 20" wheels and maintain recommended air pressure. I like firm ride and find it quite comfortable.

Those of you that are reducing tire pressure may be putting a additional risk on rim damage when encountering road hazards. I don't know if it makes much difference but it will make some difference.

Good Morning from the east coast. In that same vein. My car seems to chatter (left front wheel) when I go over uneven surfaces like a bridge or from black top to concrete or expansion joints. It's at the dealership now. Thought it might be a air suspension or tire issue. Anyone have a similar issue? Tire pressures seem good.

Yes, I absolutely notice this! It does it all the time even with lane departure turned off. Let us know what the dealer says. It's like the traction control being way overly sensitive or something...
