I'm going to replace the Pirelli's on my 98 xk8 (17") - any opinions on other brands (positive or negative)? Thanks for your comments!!

I have a 98 xk8 and decided to replace the Pirelli's with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. I found them to be a very good tire and unless your "racing" your Jag you will find these tires made for the real world. The Michelin's still handles well in the dry plus I found the Pirelli's to be darty under heavy braking on uneven surfaces and the Michelin's stop straight as an arrow. The Michelin's really work well in the wet, and living in PA I had a few chances this winter to put them in the snow with GOOD results.
I hope this helps you.
