Have just replaced the p zero's on my S for a full set of ps4s and the difference it very noticeable,far grippier with less tramlineing and far quieter,also on a plus note the fronts offer better rim protection on the wheel(still not great but a lot better then the p zero's),they are expensive compared to the Pirelli's but as soon as I drove the car I knew it was money well sent
Thanks Rich xe,
that's just what I was hoping, interesting that they are quieter, guess you hear more engine than road now!! ...not a bad thing!
Post back your thoughts when you run them on a very wet road. Great about the rim protection. :D

Hi, I just ordered four PS4S for my Jaguar XE, 225/40/19 (front) & 255/35/19 (rear). I am curious about the ones on the front, there are 2 types (https://www.michelin.co.uk/auto/tyres/pilot-sport-4-s):

1. 225/40/R19 93 Y XL | * B (Wet)
2. 225/40/R19 93 ZR(Y) XL A (Wet)

I know the first ones (*) are for BMW. Will there be any issue fitting these? Or should I go for the second ones?

Thank you!

:?: ...not sure, I'd say the Y rating is the correct one but more tech folks on here maybe able to help you, I have 20" on mine, so I'm not familiar with the 19"...

I think so too.
The sizes are the same and the load rating (XL) is the same as per the manual for 19" wheels.
The speed rating in the manual is "Y" so the first one fits the requirements exactly.
Don't worry about the tyre being for BMW, that just means BMW have tested it and recommend it for their cars.

I'll try to find those with better wet grip. If not, i'll just go with the first ones.

What would be interesting would be a comparison between all the makes, not just grip but also noise, in the dry, and the wet.

I finally went with PS4s 225/40 R19 93Y (front) & 255/35 R19 96Y (rear).

I got them for three months now and they perform very well. On wet, the grip is amazing and on dry the tires feel very soft and quiet, absorbing a lot of bumps. Before these I had the Dunlop Sport Maxx and I can tell that these are more comfortable and have better wet grip.
I would definitely recommend these tires.

I did a lot of documenting before purchasing them and a good resource for tire comparison is this website: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk

I purchased a pair for the front when the originals came up for replacing and can echo your response. I think I'm right in saying though that Jaguar only endorse the Dunlops.
