Wheels sizes

Hello,

I bring you a recent test. A 35t (340cv) with wheels of 20 and 22. The difference in comfort is major, especially on the damaged portions. (Without adaptative dynamic)
On the other hand no real difference of handling. For mine, I demanded a 19, to the surprise of the dealer.
I can assure you that this is the most intelligent option I have taken.
No difference in handling, perfect comfort and no problem for the little off road. (with adaptative dynamic)
when the visual aspect, it suits me very well. I do not even talk about the difference in price when remlacement.
My advice, except to have a perfect bitumen, ask yourself the question of not taking tires too low

But this is only my opinion.

Enjoy !

Comfort is subjective, but most people would agree there’s a drop in comfort as the tire size increases. I have 20s on my 35T, 19s on the 20d, and I’d say there is some drop off in comfort, but it’s minor. That’s the thing, though - It all depends on how much comfort the driver is willing to sacrifice, so there’s no really wrong or right choice, only what makes you happy. Case in point- Some dude is driving around in a lime green F-Pace w/ 35s on it.

lol i bet that person is not taking it on any rough roads though.

I think the 19 and 20" options leave the F-Pace lacking in the aesthetic department. 22s fill that wheel well and just look right. The ride is not that rough in my opinion, unless you're on poorly maintained roads all the time you won't notice the difference, especially on smooth interstate roads.

The 19 and 20 will have a higher aspect ratio, meaning more cushion against potholes, and new tires can be a little cheaper than 22s ($120-345/tire for 19s $199-396/tire for 22s), they will also have slightly less width (255 vs 265 on the 22s), so longer stopping distance and decreased traction in wet and snow given all other things being the same (make/model/speed rating/tread)

ultimately the largest differences are aesthetics and rough road ride quality, everything else is minor, so pick whichever makes sense for you

this topic has been beat to death here on the forum over the last two years. Especially back in the last half of 2016. Wheel sizes and weight do affect performance and ride, but so do the quality of the tires being used. A stiff sidewall tire on a 20 inch wheel, can ride rougher than a less stiff sidewall tire on a 22 inch wheel. Tire pressures also clearly have a big impact on the ride and handling. What you run on your F-Pace when it comes to wheels and tires is truly personal preference. For myself, I like the look of the 22s and I run Conti DWS 06s on therm because they are very good riding tires in that size. Better than anything else I've ever had on my cars. I've used them with 20s on an Infinity M45, with 19s on an Accord V6 2 door, and they allow you to get a compliant ride, great handling with the larger wheels. I also drive agressively around corners and my tires never ever squeal until I'm truly over the limit. I would say the way that I drive, a 20s with maybe even the same DWS06s would probably squeal quite a bit. It's personal preference.

I think we can agree one of the big draws to this vehicle is its looks. I would have a very hard time convincing myself that I want comfort over looks while in the FPace. I didn't even know that 19s were an option on this car, hope they gave you a nice discount too

^This is the key. High quality tires that are designed around wide, low profile applications. I run 22s with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ now and it rides perfectly for me, with very little difference between the stock 20" Goodyears that came on it (which road rough for a 20" in my opinion). Lightweight rims are also key if you are going that big. No Ebay specials made for Escalades.



As noted by others, I chose to capitalize on the utter dead sexy looks of the F-Pace and slap big rims and tires on it. No regrets, but to each his own.

I stuck with the 255/55/r19 on my 2.0d R sport. When the tyres wear out am thinking about replacing with 275/50r19 at least on the rear same as a Porsche Cayenne. Anyone have experience?
