    I’m assuming you mean 205/70-15 like the later series 3 E-type fitted when it had power steering.

    https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/classic-car-tyres/jaguar/e-type.html

    for power steering cars we suggest the Pirelli P5, because this is the tyre Jaguar asked Pirelli to make for their power steering luxury cars.

    6 cylinder cars drive better on the 185-15 Cinturato CA67 which we will have back in stock in a couple of months, or the 185VR15 Michelin XVS.
    However some people like a wider 205/70-15 tyre on here because it fills the wheel arches, and they like the look. And for these non power steering cars we’d suggest 205/70–15 Cinturato CN12 or XWX. But really put function in front of fashion and fit a proper period 185

    Hi Dougal,
    What is the difference between the Pirelli P5 and the Pirelli CN12 in the same dimension?
    I know the story of the P5 J development from the Norman Dewis book and drive the P5 on my Jag, as I have the CN36 on my Dino. Great tires, better than the (beautiful) XWX.
    But why does Pirelli offer 2 tires in the same dimension?

    Thanks for your expertise!

    CN36 is a 1968 tyre that was developed with Porsche and Pirellis first stab at low profile tyres, very much aimed at progressive handling The CN36 was developed for the Fiat Dino and Porsche 911

    The CN12 is a 1972 sportscar tyre, use by Maserati and Lamborghini and Jensen sportscars as a transition from full profile tyres to low profile tyres.

    the P5 was devceloped in conjunction with Jaguars XJ series and their suspention and steering set up of the period, with a bit more emphasis on quietness and comfort, and a slightly later nid to late 1970s tyre
