Default XL tiyres

Just a quick question about tyres.
Will be needing 4 new 225/45/18 tyres for my gridspokes soon. Being a zt saloon do I need XL (xtra load)rated tyres .

Not sure what mfrs spec is for ZT but XL rated have more rigid sidewalls which will made the ride more harsh. I swapped back from XL's that I inherited on my 17" Meteors to 91V and the ride definitely improved.. Depends whether you are happy with a hard ride.
