Buying a Jaguar F-Type - which wheel size is best?

I will shortly be ordering a new Jaguar F-Type S coupe. I have seen you comment many times on wheel sizes so could I ask whether you would recommend 19 or 20-inch wheels?

What do you want? Ride comfort or track day grip at the expense of ride comfort? For ride comfort, better tyre life and less vulnerability to pot holes I'd go for the 19-inch wheels. Even though the tyre profiles seem to be similar the 19-inch tyres are a bit more comfortable.
