X-Type tyre noise

My X-Type is fitted with Pirelli P6000 Powergy tyres, which seem to
generate a lot of road noise on most surfaces. Can anyone suggest anything
better and quieter?

Re: X-Type tyre noise

I have the same problem with the 96 VDP I own. The Pirelli 6000's are
noisey and a bit rough on the road. I've tried different air
pressures with little differences. I've ridden in an older XJ6 with
Michelin PILOTs and they seemed to make a world of difference. Then
again, it cold be the car.

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.
