20 inch wheels
Below are the specs for the all season, OEM 20 inch tire from the Tire Rack Site. These tires were specifically designed for the F Pace. They are certainly not junk as some OEM tires can be, the price alone should tell you that there a much less expensive alternatives when the time comes to replace them if you want to go that route.
In the 5 months that I had the OEM tires on after taking delivery of the vehicle and prior to switching to my winter tires, I was quite pleased with them on all counts, handing, noise, traction. In a few weeks they will be back on the vehicle as I switch over near the end of March.
These tires are top specs for traction and heat dispersion. A W speed rating is described on the Tire Rack site, as useable for exotic sports cars but with an XL rating to be used on a SUV, Crossover or Light Truck.
The mileage rating of 240 likely will give you about 25,000 miles to 30,000 miles of use. For a high speed rated tire with top traction and heat dispersion that is not to shabby. The problem with wear ratings is apparently they are determined by the tire manufacturer and not independently tested. Most articles on the subject will tell you that the mileage rating is a good indicator between tires of the same brand but not reliable as a measure between brands.
Every tire is a compromise between a number of factors, traction, noise, ride comfort, mileage, speed rating to a name a few. Generally as you go up in speed rating and traction you get a softer stickier compound that wears more.
W speed ratings are rare so when and if it comes times to replace my tires (I may not have too since I only drive about 8,000 to 10 thousand miles per year and about 4 months on winter tires and trade every 4 to 5 years) , I will likely drop down to a V rating which will give me much more choice, less expensive and more mileage, although mileage for me is not a significant factor for replacement tires because I will likely be close to trading in the vehicle. A W tire is designed to drive at sustained speeds of up to 168 mph while a V tire is designed to go at 149 mph. I have no plans to race or drive at sustained speeds approaching 149 let alone 168. My winter tires are Pirelli V rated and I am sure I have never approached their performance limit.
BTW, I like this vehicle so much that if Jaguar offers an extended warranty I might consider holding on to it longer that my usual 4 to 5 years so replacement tire mileage may become a more important factor.
