The I-Pace has been showcased with the same rim and it is sort of appealing, but probably won't cut it for me as I'm already getting bored and sick of it. Have you guys considered switching to another Jaguar rim from the other models on the line-up or are you hoping the production model will be brought forward with different rims? Or do you like these rims and are hoping they stay?
These are the rims that are currently on the I-Pace as we see it
The biggest problem will be finding something light weight because odds are what will come stock, is light weight. Im not wiling to spend $7,500+ for a new set of wheels. Only other wheels i'll get is a winter set, or just throw winters on these.
I didn't even think about that. That should affect range quite a bit right? Isn't there talk about LRR tires or something around that?
Well if you start factoring in all the other ways you can negatively impact range by doing things aside from adding different wheels, then yes. Unless you have no option, like needing to haul extra cargo, then by all means go ahead, but no one NEEDS to have different wheels, they just want it. But at the same time theres no problem with that, just know what you're getting into.
Not too worried about wheels failing like that, especially oem wheels. If they were some cheap XXR wheels or something then yea, but I can't see an OEM wheel failing that easily and if it does, you bet they'll cover it right away.
