Jaguar XJ V12 Tyres

For all models of the XJ12 Jaguar saloon we recommend either Michelin XWX which is a really durable period tyre that can withstand heat, and will handle really well at high speeds and perform excellently on motorways and dual carriage ways. It is worth noting that XWX was what Ferrari fitted to their Daytona & 330 GT and some British Police forces fitted the XWX to their Jaguar Jam sandwich XJ saloons.

The P5 by Pirelli is also an extremely high performance tyre with a W speed rating and will perform excellently in the wet, and provide excellent comfort and grip. Worth noting that the Pirelli Cinturato P5 is the tyre that Jaguar requested Pirelli to make for their XJ12 back in the 1970s. Pirelli are producing these tyres again and Jaguar have tested them and awarded them the J homologation, making them the tyre of choice for their XJ12 cars

Jaguar XJ12 HE Tyres

When Jaguar developed the HE version of the XJ12, part of the high efficiency was the taller tyres 215/70WR15 Pirelli P5 was the Jaguar homologated tyre for their XJ12 HE.

XJ12 Tyres


For the XJ12 Jaguar saloon the Michelin XWX is a really durable high performance period tyre that can withstand heat, and will handle really well at high speeds and perform excellently on motorways and dual carriage ways. It is worth noting that XWX was what Ferrari fitted to their Daytona & 330 GT and some British Police forces fitted the XWX to their Jaguar Jam sandwich XJ saloons.

The CN12 by Pirelli is also an extremely high performance tyre with a W speed rating and will perform excellently in the wet, and provide excellent comfort and grip. Worth noting that the Pirelli Cinturato CN12 was fitted to Lamborghini cars such as their Espada & Muira.

Jaguar asked Pirelli in 1977 to make a bespoke tyres for their performance Luxury saloons. And in 1979 the Pirelli P5 was homologated on the Jaguar XJ12, XJ6 & XJS. Pirelli have started making a small range of P5 tyres again. Again at the request of Jaguar themselves. This range includes the 205/70WR15 P5, 215/70WR15 P5, and the 225/65R15 P5 for the later XJ40 models.

In 1982 Jaguar developed the XJ12 HE (or High efficiency) improved model of the XJ12, one off the improvements was to fit 215/70VR15 tyres instead of the 205/70VR15. There by fitting a taller tyre to improve the gearing and clearance. Currently Longstone would suggest the best tyre for these fantastic XJ12 saloons and of course the XJC V12 would be the 215/70VR15 PIRELLI P5.
