Tyre Recommendations - Please Advise...........

Recommended Posts

My December 2003, S - Type 3.0 Ltr - SE + will shortly require new tyres. The car currently has a set of Avon 235 / 50 ZR 17 tyres which I like, they give a smooth run, excellent fuel economy and have a fit that is slightly proud of the rims of the alloy wheels, thereby affording some protection to the alloys from kerbing - not that this has occurred of course !! My garage suggests a change from Avon's - which surprised me as I understood early Jags were all made with Avon's pretty much as a standard fit. They suggest a variety of manufacturers from Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone etc., - saying that a tyre must have "Jaguar Fit". I have concluded that the best way to unravel all of this is to ask you - S - Type owners, what you run your cars on. it is likely that you have considerably more experience than I. I would very much welcome and appreciate your recommendations please.

I personally use Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 3 tyres. I find they wear very well and are not too expensive (locally, £107.00 each, which is pretty reasonable). I know some other owners like the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 but I have no experience with them.

You can get the Goodyear tyres from F1Autocentres. They are cheaper to buy on their website and then have them fitted at one of their centres (it's all included in the price).
