As most First Edition members know, our tire choices are quite limited for the 22” wheels. I had an alignment issue that chewed up the front wheels so I had a decision to make:

— Replace my tires with the same summer-only Pirelli P-Zeros and use my Ram 1500 as my ‘snow tires’

— Replace my P-Zeros and then buy a second set of rims and put on snow tires

— Use a slightly larger size tire on the 22” rim to open up more brands to be considered.

After meeting a nice forum member who had an extra set of 22” 5069 Rims and Tires I decided to buy those from him as the tires were in great shape. This allows me to have a proper set of wheels and original rubber in case my experiment went poorly. So now I had two full sets of 22” 5069 with Pirelli P-Zeros so I wasn’t any farther ahead.

I shopped around looking for tires in the 265/40R22 instead of the factory 255/40R22. I found these ones I had never heard of before—Sailun Atrezzo SVR. Apparently they are made in Korea.

The reason why I went with this tire is that they were only $188 ea instead of around $600 ea for the P-Zeros. My biggest concern was that they would be noisy, rough or too inefficient on the highway. So far they aren’t too noisy although I wish I could have transferred the foam noise inserts from the original tire into these ones. They make a slight ‘ping’ noise sort of like when you bounce a yoga ball when hitting cracks in the pavement. Nothing too noticeable however the P-Zeros didn’t sound like that. Took if for a couple hundred km run and there isn’t a noticeable decrease in range although it is too soon to say for sure.

I figure better to take a range hit than a wallet hit!

Anyhow, they look nice and suit the car well. There appears to be lots of tread so they should be good for this winter. I should have mentioned that I went with an all-season instead of a full snow tire. I don’t think the slight difference in diameter should affect things too much but only time will tell.

I think the majority of the noise problems I had with my Ford electric was finding a tire that handled and didn't make much noise when they got worn down. The Ford was much quieter than the Jag, (with the Jag's planetary gear sets) so having a quiet tire was more of a concern. The Jag's gear whine probably helps hide some of the tire noise. Of course it takes a while to get to that worn down tire. My Jag has the most accurate speedometer I have ever had. Changing tire size will affect that accuracy. It looks to be about 0.7 mph error difference at 67mph. Not bad. 255 = 671.9 rev/mile, 265 = 664.9 rev/mile

Nice find!

I'm running Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus all-seasons in 265/40R22 in rainy Seattle. They fit, but it was close with (~1cm) clearance from the suspension components. A little noisier than summer tires, but not objectionable. They perform well in spirited driving and do not hydroplane easily.

The Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 is available and should also fit. I would LOVE to try the Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 Plus tires at some point. (They were not available at the time.) I have them on my other cars and they have gotten me out of places I really should have been stuck in.

Those look great, though I have never heard of them. With the advent of the Mach-E, another option has arisen from Continental who now makes tires in our stock 22" size and load range. About $1100 for a set vs the $1500 for the Pirelli P Zero, though you may loose some tire performance points (Grand Touring Summer vs Max Performance Summer).


I installed a set last month to try them out. Will report back after some time.
