22" Tyres

I'm needing to get a full set of 275/40/22's

I've not had wheels this large or tyres on my previous RR's with such a low profile.

So my "go to" would be Pirelli Scorpion Verde but before commiting to £1k of tyres, any of you folks got real experince on other brands ?? Its not so much the money (although it helps!) its about noise and comfort, these 22's are pretty harsh for a floaty boat car.

What do you have now ?

I have Conti's (both summer & winter) and have been happy with them - I'm on my second set of each Shocked

Michelin PS4's seem to be getting good reviews, but I've not tried them (yet)

I put a full set of 5 Conti Silents in 285/40/22 on - very quiet and the ride is a little better due to slightly larger rubber in both width and depth - they are oem fit and are marked LR L405 Vogue SE 4.4 V8 DIESEL ~ #16

Agree with the above especially 285.40.22 section tyres, they give more protection to your rims and actually look better than the 275.40 .22 profile, I've used both budget and branded Pirelli for normal city and motorway driving, no off roading, I change them when they get down to 3.5 mm the budgets are a bit noisy compared to name brand

I've got Conti's Cross Contact LX Sport , whatever the hell thats really means ?

The reason I'm lloking to change them is I've got excess NSF outer wear, someone on here mentioned this may be a Conti trait..... just saying

I'm only going by the tyre ratings rather than personal experience, but aren't the Contis a lot louder than Pirellis?

Scorpion Verde - Fuel C / Wet B / 71db
Scorpion Zero - Fuel A / Wet B / 69db
Continental - Fuel B / Wet C / 75db

I'd go for the Zeros to stick with a M&S tyre, as there is quite a big difference between 69-75db. MY19 SDV8 Autobiography

I'm going by 20" experiance on my L322 but the difference between Scorpion and Scorpeon Verde was pretty obvious to me. The Verde was so much more compliant and handled way better, the difference between 10+ years of development I assume. Thats the only reason I'd default to Verde or Verde Plus, there are btter tyres out there just I'm not familair with them.

I do like the suggestion of going 285 though !

Looking at pics of tyres, that would straight away indicate worn suspension arms or a tracking issue and our vehicles are very sensitive when it comes to tracking, it is agreed that Hunter alignment systems are the best way to go, as it deffo wont be the tyres fault, its only going where you point it but if tracking and alignment are out that pic shows the result, suggest checking first before spending any money on new tyres Thumbs Up

This is where I started from, the excess wear. I'm going to swop the wheels round for now and get it examined by my local friendly garage for suspension wear. I can't feel anything in driving it but then would I ?

I need to be a little cautios as I bought the car two/three months ago with a so called "VGS Gold"warranty and if I can get that to pay for it all the better.

Been running the PS4s for a couple of years. Best i've ever had to be honest, wet handling is incredible, hard wearing too, got them on the porsche as well, there was a discount code flying about too, i'll have a look.

I'm going to have a devil of a job deciding on tyres when my current 22's are worn.......

......my usual approach is to buy a new set of wheels..... Laughing Laughing 2017 4.4 SDV8 Autobiography

Just put a set of verdes on mine, although 21’s not 22’s, very pleased with the performance so far. Excellent in the wet and been quiet up to now. I also tow a large caravan and had no problem there either.
