I'm running 255/70, front and rear. 90% of my driving is on the pavement where a little softer ride is appreciated.
You might want the 360/80 valving, if a stiffer front end is desired.

What I used, Bilstein 5165
Front 11.3", 23-187717, 255/70
Rear 9.8", 25-177510, 255/70
Both XJs are still Real XJs
