Which tyres for my Jaguar?

I am advised that my Jaguar X-Type 2004 3-litre AWD will shortly need new tyres.

Currently fitted are Pirellis 225/45zR/17/914 what do you recommend please?

Would Cross Climates be advisable or would budgets be ok? I am currently doing approx 6000 miles pa.

If you want the 4WD to be effective in winter, fit Michelin Cross Climates, Continental AllSeason Contacts of Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons, assuming you can get them in 225/45 R17. But all season tyres are not at their best in profiles below 50. Do not fit budget tyres. Check Tyres On The Drive (bit.ly/2ZlEVaR) and Blackcircles.com (bit.ly/2JM6bqG) for sizes and prices and read our Tyre Buying Guide (bit.ly/2wsFHBU)
