When I ordered my E Pace I spotted the option to specify All Season rather than the standard Summer tyres. So that's what I asked for.

The car has come fitted with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV tyres. Looking on the Goodyear website these are labelled as Summer tyres. So I'm wondering if Jag have missed that option when building the car. Could anyone else tell me what tyres they've got and whether they specc'd Summer or All Season tyres?

Thanks

I also took the all season tyres.. the brand is Vredestein(dutch tyres) and has 4 little marks, a snowflake, raindrops, sun and one other i don't know right now :) .. that means it's all weather.. so yes i have the all weather tyres.

I ordered all seasons tyres.On checking my tyres they are Good Year F1 Asymmetric AT SUV 4x4 M&S which I am happy with to be all seasons tyres.

There the same ones I have. Just been to a local tyre retailer and they've said that they are Summer tyres in their opinion. And that's what the Goodyear website flags them as too.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric AT tyres are all-weather and probably an extension of the exclusive JLR-Goodyear deal on these types of tyres as announced June 2017: http://news.goodyear.eu/events/goodyear-suv-4x4-press-event-june-27-28-2017/goodyear-supplies-jaguar-land-rover-with-original-equipment-for-the-new-jaguar-f-pace--land-rover-di/s/763c85bf-d07e-4d69-be07-b4f142f771e7

These 'AT' variants are not easily available in the aftermarket domain in Europe so may be the reason why the local tyre specialist don't recognise them. They probably only know the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV. In Europe the Goodyear aftermarket all weather tyres are marketed as 'Vector'.

Hello

For hard winter conditions . .winter rubber is best, plus when I go to France to see my parents is a legal requirement

but really does make a difference having winter tyres ... but at a extra running cost and expense

May be an additional check? Does the AT-variant of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric hold the 3PMSF marking (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake)? This is the official symbol identifying the suitability of the tyre for demanding weather conditions (below 0 degrees Celsius).

I am unhappy about this. When we spec'd the car I asked why it said summer tyres he said that was the normal tyre and other countries had more of a winter tyre option. Turns out thats not the case and we really have summer tyres. Ours are Pirelli 245/45R20 103Y.
I googled them and reviews are not positive. Dissapointed though to have asked the question and received an answer that was not correct. I also asked 3 times if I could have red Brake Callipers to be told no three times and now it turns out there is an option for that.

Interesting to say the least.
It is true that the 3PMSF indication is developed for winter tyres (https://www.goodyear.eu/corporate_emea/our-responsibilities/road-safety/winter-tire-recognition.jsp) but almost all manufacturers put the symbol on their all-season tyres as well to indicate that they perform under 7 degrees Celsius.
The typical Goodyear all-season tyre, the Vector, holds for instance the 3PMSF symbol (https://www.goodyear.eu/en_gb/consumer/tires/vector_4seasons_suvgen-2.VEC4SSUVG2.html).
Curious to see how your dealer will respond?

Hi murchison2003
Not sure what you're confirming as the link does not mention the tyres fitted to the e-pace? Yes they are Goodyear F1 Assymetric. But not SUV 3.... They are Assymetric AT (All Terrain). So how does this erase all doubt!!!
