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

Those I-Pace rims won't make it into production, just too intricate for it to be financially feasible. But I wouldn't mind getting those as an option, or maybe the ones from the Jaguar XJ.

I'm not too fond of those rims on the XJ... they seem too bland for the more exciting styling of the I-Pace in my opinion... maybe these ?

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.

Anyone concerned about weight?

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.

We'll probably get cast aluminum wheels as those are pretty light, but I'm willing to take a range hit for a set of forged rims as those are sturdier and there's just so many potholes these days.

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.

Greetings Cats,

FYI The bolt pattern is standard 5x108 and the centre bore for the wheel hub is 63.4 mm.

This is a standard [common?] size and you will find OEM fitments from Ford, JLR and Volvo products in a variety of rim sizes from 18", 19", 20", 21" and 22". Using the above specs is how you access the aftermarket. The TPMS sensors are widely available on the aftermarket for cheap and will integrate seamlessly with your car without a need to visit the dealer.

Any dealer who tells you to only use JLR product is full of shit. full stop.

Don't forget the offset. Also the lug nuts might not seat the same. Thread pitch on bolts could be different.

Agreed. All of the above are true. Yes you always should take certain precautions to ensure there are correct fitments, tolerances and hardware and not cut any corners either. I'm not suggesting this is a mindless installation.

Generally speaking though the rims are interchangeable. It dates back to a time not too long ago when once Ford had all of these brands under their umbrella and so standardized them to their SUV wheel hub - 63.4 mm with 5x108 bolt pattern. This corresponds to when Volvo coincidentally first started offering 20" and 22" wheels as an option ($$$$$) on the XC90.

the XC90, Ford Edge, most Jaguar SUVs, Lincoln SUVs etc all have the same hub specs.

I weighed the optional 18 inch wheel/tire set (yes there is an optional 18 inch wheel for pre-2022 I-Paces) and it weighed in at 57 pounds (the oem wheel is 24 pounds minus the weight go the tires). I don't know for sure for the I-Pace specifically, but having purchased summer wheels and tires (and using the OEM as the winter set) in all my previous cars - I have always been able to purchase aftermarket wheels that were lighter (sometimes significantly) than the oem wheels. I went with 20 inch TSW Nurburgrings and went 30 mm wider on tires (265/45/20 continental summer tires) and managed to drop 4 pounds per corner despite the increase in diameter and width. A good quality aftermarket wheel/tire set will usually be less expensive than just the cost of a set of oem wheels (which are outrageously expensive).

I'm interested if you've seen any loss in range with the wider 265's. There's a lot better selection in that size, they look better, and they should still fit the stock 20" rims. I'm not a fan of the stock 20" Goodyears.

I know that I lost some range, but I drive mostly around town, and the last road trip I took w/air on and temps in the high 80s (75 miles each way) I averaged 2.67 mi/kWh one way and 2.57 the other way on freeways and two lane country roads w/ a few stop lights thrown in. Around town it ranges from low 2's to mid 3's mi/kWh. I don't drive for range, and like pushing the go pedal...so I know I don't especially contribute to range efficiency :) GOM shows 244 miles on a full charge today.

The wider summer tires improve the handling significantly (I'm comparing them to 18 inch all seasons that are 235mm wide though). I would imagine wider and stickier rubber would also be an improvement over the 20 inch all-seasons but can't speak on that, personally. The only noticeable difference that isn't a total positive (but isn't a negative either) is that the steering gets really heavy in dynamic mode..not horrible, but definitely noticeable over the thinner tires..I am getting to like it more as I get accustomed to it, but that was a change I wasn't expecting. The more aggressive look is also an added bonus. I will make sure to look closer at the range when I go back to the stock set with the oem size winter tires...if it isn't too cold by then to skew the results..

That is a stubborn misconception.
Wider tires do NOT increase rolling resistance. The RR comes virtually entirely from the flex of the shoulder of the tires, the friction from the contact patch is marginal. Wider tires have broader shoulders and will have (slightly) less resistance.
They will have a marginally higher aerodynamic drag.
What you will notice when swapping tires is that new tires have more resistance. Not being well scrubbed-in yet, deeper profile grooves etc cause this.
(That is what Tesla sells their cars with special OEM tires with only half the profile, makes for better stats and official range).
