Pirelli P-Zero: Share your thoughts

When we're told the XJ's successor is supposed to get more sporty overall, picking from the best of what the current XJ has to offer creates a good starting point, that being the hyped up XJR575. It wears a set of Pirelli P-Zero tires that get as wide as 295! Oh and these aren't exclusive to the XJR, other Jaguar models favor high performing Pirelli tires. Does anyone here have experience with Pirelli tires on Jaguar's and how early into the 2019 XS(XJ) should high performing Pirelli's start being offered?

drove my friends Jaguar XE-S and I have to say if this Jaguar XS will feel just as controlled and stable with P-Zero's as it did with the XE then I will have no complaints, however I don't demand much of any car I have so for the average user these will be fine.

Did you find that those tires required a "break in" to really get them working at peak levels or what? Some people I know with performance tires really push the point on temperature.

That only really matters when you're racing and the tires need to be warmed up, but for general driving there's no need to break in tires or warm them up.
