The tire pressure warning system on our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe isn't the good kind. Like our BMW 328, it will tell you when you have a flat and on which tire, but not what the exact tire pressure is.

    Why are there so many nails on the roads of California?

    Here in IL, I think my last 2 flats were screws though I'm not sure why they are prevalent (for me).

    Eh, only $30. That's nothing compared to the cost of replacing those 20" tires. On Tire Rack, you have 2 options, either $1,354 a set (Pilot SS) or Pirelli P Zero for $1,478 a set. That's, of course, not including shipping and installation.

    "Turns out 550 horsepower through the rear wheels and monkey-grip from the fronts has a negative impact on tire life."

    You are forgetting the impact that not having to buy the tires yourself has on tire life too.

    Is it only me who thinks patching a high performance tire, close to the end of life is a bit risky, especially when your driving the car aggressively?

    If you're buying a car like this, you shouldn't be worried about tire life whether you pay for the tires or someone else does. If you can't afford tires, you can't afford this car.
