When Jaguar first introduced their XJ12, V12 model of their excellent XJ6 saloon, they initially stuck with the same size tyre as the XJ6 which was ER/70VR15 or as we now know it today 205/70VR15. We would suggest that the 2 best tyres for these cars are either 205/70WR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN12 or 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX and the temptation would be to fit PIRELLI due to Jaguars long standing relationship with PIRELLI.

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. They also fitted a PIRELLI P4000. Currently Longstone would suggest the best tyre for these fantastic XJ12 saloons and of course the XJC V12 would be the 215/70VR15 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™
