I have just bought a 2016 XE 2.0D (163 PS) Automatic.
Beautiful car, drives like a dream.
However the tyres (225/45 ZR18 95Y, front & rear) are rather rubbish - Hankook on the front, Falken on the rear.
The TPMS is OK on heavy load setting, but the “handbook” pressures as displayed for light load seem to be for 17” rims (41/38psi) so I get a constant under inflated message when I inflate to the sticker values (34psi all round). Just to add to my confusion, the rims don’t look like Jaguar OEM - 8 pairs of spokes rather than 7 pairs.
We’ll be driving to Italy via Germany in September so I would like to replace the tyres before such a long (and, in part, potentially high speed) journey.
- Have I got the right wheels?
Do I need to get new 17” rims?
Will TPMS work with any rims or does it have to be Jag OEM?
Can someone (anyone?) reset my “handbook” values for 18” wheels?
