Re: X-Type tyre noise
I have 6 cars and 3 of them are Jags. I help friends maintain another 8
Jags including a 2001 XJR. The LAST set of tyres ANY of us would put on
these cars are Pirellis. We have all had them and we all dislike them. They
wear poorly, they develop flat spots if they sit for more than 3 days, they
ride rough (although they handle pretty well). You have to be careful that
you get a matched set that are made in the US in order to even start to get
a decent quality tyre. Michelins, Firestones and Continental are decent
tyres but it is all a matter of personal taste.
