Hey Everyone,

Wanted to post photos of Soot, with his new shoes. After doing some research, I figured out the OEM wheels from a Jaguar F-Pace would fit the Mach-E perfectly. I also wanted to go to a 20 inch rim, and a wheel that was wider. After much agonizing, I decided on a 20X8.5 rims with 245/45 20 tires. Not sure how negatively it's affected my range, but not too worried about it. I'm super pleased with the results and my new ride.

Cheers Everyone

Is it the camera angle or did you Match 20s in the rear with 18s in the front? It has a nice rake. How is the ride? Stifff?

Amen. Thanks for posting and digging into it.
Im in Alaska and I heard someone in a First Edition got stuck in the snow and could obviously tell after it got too late, that wider tires for one thing would be better for winter conditions.
Strategically 😅 it seems Ford made sure I don’t have to drive mine in the snow until fall. Well done Mr logistics genius computer button clicker chooser 🍻
But, I will feel the stocks and I’m sure I’ll be going little wider, regardless the range loss. I got extended range and one way to work is 36 miles. I don’t intend on driving whisper ever and I do intend to blast my HVAC as I see fit. So the tires won’t be worse than me for range loss, 😂

Wider tires will improve grip and performance in the summer. But narower tires are generally recommended for winter conditions because they have a better chance of cutting through the snow rather than floating on top of it.

Nice rims, your sizes are exactly what I want to install on my RWD as replacement of the "ballonish" 18inch. What brand and type are your rims? The inside looks to be graphite instead of black which I much prefer but couldn't really find any rim in that colour combo.

Could you post a picture from the side without angle?

Search on the Jaguar website...(these won't help with the stiff suspension😉)

I was thinking snow shoes? And if you use studded tires, I guess more narrow? But ice skates are narrow and metal and they ain’t that great for stopping on ice, they’re designed for beautiful art on ice, example “Blades of Glory”
If you’ve bought winter tires from Costco in the last decade then you’ve one bought Blizzak style. (Soft and siped) You have to have surface contact doe surface traction. So, I guess it depends on the type of winter conditions you experience. But I was born and raised in Alaska and I’m not getting my experience from a book.
However, I am not an engineer 😆

that's looks great... I'm really interested in how it affects the Ride and also the range.

Curious why you went with OE Jag wheels instead of aftermarket?

Click on the picture and you get a larger one. Apparently the logo didn’t make the cut.. eternal shame

It looks awesome, I was wondering which OEM wheels would fit the MME. I'm planing in getting a new set of 18" for winter tires. Luckily I have several months before the white sh^&*t starts falling again :)

As with all things, there are a lot of "it depends" in there. If you were trying to drive on 24" of snow then you need very big and very wide - think of the extreme case of the Yellowstone vans with 50" balloon tires running at 4psi.

But if you are trying to drive on 5" of snow over a road, then you might want to cut through the snow and get right to the road surface and bite that. Too much floatation means you are spinning on a pile of snow rather than biting a road.

In CO, a popular choice for offroad and winter vehicles on roads is "pizza cutter" tires - tall and narrow so you cut through the little bit of sand, mud or snow, and grab the road or rocks underneath.

But one way or another, the biggest difference is the rubber compound and tread design - a well designed modern winter tire is a thing of beauty! They really do work very well.
