RapidE Wheels Size

Any ideas what kind of wheels RapidE is going to have? I can't find the size of current wheels that regular Rapide has right now. Apparently, there is a slight difference in battery usage that depends on the size of the wheel. It seems like current Aston Martin Rapide has a basic wheel size of 20 or 21, does it mean that Rapide's electric version is going to have the same size?

Probably something pretty wide for performance and launch grip. Maybe something similar to the BMW i8's 215/45 front, 245/40 rear tires?

That's a good assumption I believe. Do you know if there is a tire size of the current Rapide in the official Aston Martin site? I can't find it there.

Current Rapide's come with 20 inch wheels and odds are it won't change on the electric version this forum is about. the only change we might see is them use lighter materials. I want to say they will use carbon fiber but even for Aston Martin that might be too much of a cost to take on, but we should expect something lighter than normal.
