The Yokohama tires the previous owner had on my ’90 XJ-S Coupe were worn out. I wanted to replace them with the (uncommon) tire size that was stock: 235/60R-15. I’ve read that the XJ-S is the only car that takes this size, but I am not certain. Local tire shops couldn’t find the size, charged too much, or took too long to order. One of the guys agreed to install tires if I got them. Searching the Internet, I found that Victoria Tire had a couple of choices at decent prices. I was first going to order the Pirelli P6000 with the recommended V speed rating (150 MPH), but it turned out that they could not really get them in the needed size.
I opted for the Michelin Pilot XGT H4 “Passenger High Performance All-Season” - $110 each. They were delivered to my home in New Jersey from California in two boxes for a total of $499.27. These tires are “H” speed rated (130 MPH), lower than recommended, but faster than I ever plan on going.
My local tire guy installed and balanced the set of four for $60 (I made sure he put all balance weights on the inside of the rim). The tires handle decently and have good traction on dry pavement. Watch out on snow…
