Can any of those lucky enough to have their I Pace already tell me what tires come standard on the 20 inch rims? I can't find anything in Jag's literature.

Don't know specifically about the 20" wheels, but I know my I-Pace with the 22" wheels is coming equipped with Pirelli P-Zero tires; I assume the Pirelli P-Zero tire is the standard summer tire on all USA bound I-Paces. But I could be incorrect. FWIW - when my Pirelli's wear out, I will likely go with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S (which have as good if not better grip, better traction in rain and longer tread wear); not a huge fan of the soft Pirelli's.

Mine came with Goodyear 245/50 R20 105V All Season

Ugh. Sorry. GY < Pirelli < Michelin. I've tried no less than a dozen tire brands and models on my sports cars & SUVs over the past decade or so...I've found that the Michelins are the best by far; don't think I would ever get GYs, but they'll eventually wear out and you can replace them with another brand. :wink2: Best tires I've ever had are the Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

I’ve been buying tires for 40 years. Every brand has ‘good’ and ‘bad’ tires. Not every Michelin tire is the best and not every Goodyear tire is the worst. I’ll withhold judgment on the tires that are on my car until I’ve got a few more miles on them. In my experience, TireRack does a pretty good job of reviewing tires and the user feedback is generally helpful.

Yeah, go look on the Internet for reviews on Michelin Pilot Super Sports and variants. I've had many Pirelli, Falken, GY, Bridgestone, BF GoodRich, Continental, etc. tires on my previous Porsche Macan Turbo, MB AMG, & BMW. My 700HP/TQ GT-R wears only the Michelin Pilot SS now; all others are crap on the GT-R, imho. In fact, after the horrible Bridgestone runflats that came with the GT-R wore out, I switched to the Michelin Pilot SS and never looked back. :grin2:

The Michelins are the BEST all around tire for sports cars and sports SUVs. The Pirelli's are good but softer, while the Michelins have the best dry AND wet traction as well as longer tread wear. Hopefully you'll have good luck with the GY's on the I-Pace. :smile2:

Don't you want tires that have less rolling resistance for maximum range?

Sure, of course but certainly not at the sacrifice of traction (especially in rain); we often get torrential rainstorms here in South Florida and driving on the highway in such a storm can be quite unnerving when you either don't have the right tires and/or the right vehicle. I would say you can play with the inflation of the tires in terms of rolling resistance but again, over-inflating too much will cause excessive tread wear in the middle of the tires.

Thank you all for responding. I switched my BMW's run flats for Pilot SS and agree they're probably the best. Sounds like I'll have to wait and see if I get the GY all-seasons on my I Pace. If so, I'll wear'em out and replace them with the Michelins - and proper winter tires for this season. I don't like summer tires in cold temps - too much like hockey pucks!

I just checked my order. It says "Tyres Pirelli," "235/65R18 LRR All Terrain." I guess LRR means low rolling resistance.

The specific model of tire that my car has are the Goodyear Eagle Sport. The 245/50 R20 105V appears to be a 'new' tire made for Jaguar. For what it's worth, the UTQG is 560/A/A. In the limited driving I have done with snow on the road so far they seem to be 'ok', but not great, as far as traction is concerned. This model of tire does have good ratings by TireRack, including the user reviews.

Also, it does not appear Michelin makes a Pilot series tire in this size yet.

Hello All,

You are right about the Michelins. Best all around for MANY car types.

On my second set or 4 for my Honda Ridgeline truck. (new in 2012), and 2nd set for "her" Lexus SUV (2013)

They last for a good while, and they wear VERY EVEN.

I have the i-Pace and I'll let the Goodyears wear out then it's Michelins for sure.

I'm curious what kind of range your getting with your 22" rims.

I'll let you know when I actually get my car, lol. :wink2: It was supposed to be delivered at the beginning of November, then it became mid November after arriving at the GA Port on 11/3/18 and now after getting hung up at the Port and something with the driver's seat track requiring a repair (like a recall or something?) ahead of delivery, the latest status shows it going on a transport truck tomorrow, Thurs, 11/29/18 and it being delivered to my Jaguar dealer on Fri, 11/30/18. If that happens, I will take delivery on the vehicle either on Sat, 12/1/18 or Mon, 12/3/18.

Guessing the 22" wheels only make a negligible difference in the vehicle's range but we will see. From what I've been reading, it seems that the colder weather degrades the vehicle's range more than anything. Luckily for me, I'm in South Florida and today is the coldest day it's been all year...low of 46 degrees F and a high of 60 degrees F but it's supposed to be back in the 70's tomorrow. :grin2:

I picked mine up two weeks ago and heard a knocking noise coming from driver side strut area. Found out there's a tech bulletin on new parts for strut and air bag assembly coming in Dec. My dealer already ordered for my car.

I have 20" and getting 234 miles. Actually had a range problem when I first got there car, would charge over 195 miles. Dealer did a software update and recalibrated the battery. Then it charged to 279, but on next charge 245, then charges after 234.

I only wish the onboard charging capability was higher. 7kw for home and 100kw for DC fast is much slower than I'm used to from my previous Tesla. But my I-Pace is far superior in build quality, performance and handling.

The more I have been driving the Goodyears on the snow/ice, the less I like them. Very poor traction overall. They aren't bad in fresh snow, but packed snow and ice they are downright horrible. I just may swap them out before winter is over.

No Michelin's anytime soon...

I reached out to them because I'm really not liking the Goodyears and this is what their response was...

Thank you for your interest in MICHELIN® tires!

We do not make a tire can safely support the weight of the 2019 Jaguar. The Jaguar require a 105 and our tire max load in a size 245/50r20 is 102.

Example:
105 - Max Weight is 2,039 lbs per tire
102 - Max Weight is 1,874 lbs per tire

Unfortunately, there are no plans to increase the weight of the our tires in this size.

Plus Size them...Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ 106Y, 500/AA/A in the alternative plus size of 285/35/22 (for the 22" wheels). These will likely be my 2nd set of tires after the OEM Pirelli's wear out. :wink2: See if they come in 20".
