If you register with Jaguar Topix and enter your chassis number, you can get a whole load of info on the standard build

Dunlop (Dunslip) Sportmaxx 2. 255/35/20 on fronts, 285/30/20 on rears, if you have the staggered set up like I had on mine.

Jaguar recommended these tyres and they were marked 'J' rated.

Plenty of evidence on here of the sidewalls splitting, so personally (and I think others here will too) recommend Goodyear F1 A3 or Michelin Pilot Sport 4S.

I can confirm sizes on MY2012. How mine are Pirelli and side walls(protective part) are very easy to damage.

I have 255/35/20 all round, Which models came with the staggered setup?

I guess I'll be keeping away from Dunlop and Pirelli

Re register, doubt if there is any check.

My pre-facelift Portfolio had staggered wheels and tyres. 285 on the rear, 255 on the front.

Current face-lift has 255's all round.

Tyre pressures sticker covers all possible options, both the XF's I had came with same size tyres all round.

Thanks for clarifying.

Where do you buy your tyres from?
I have a good local tyre place, but Michelin Pilot 4S are difficult to source (especially 285). I got mine from Oponeo and had them fitted locally. Used them a few times and good prices and delivery.

Asymetric 2? Any reason you didn't go for the A3s? I had them on the last car - fantastic tyre.


Gators:
They've been discussed on here an other forums.

General consensus was that they'll do the job fine when intact.

What happens after you kerb a wheel is the big unknown.
Most here believe that the gator may fracture under centrifugal force, and shatter - possibly causing damage to paintwork.
None on here that I know of have them fitted for this reason.

I hate to see them. Like leaving the plastic covers on your new sofa. :eek:
