Hello,

 

What are your experience on driving with wheels sizes in Subject. I read a bit and see difference in visual style and performance. I am very interested what is your experience and what would you recomend personaly?

 

Regards,

Luks

Luks,

 

I had 20" wheels on both my XJ Supersport and XKR, and they were fine, and also looked good.

 

Some people reckon they give a harsher ride, but I never had a problem, and the cart tracks here in Devon leave a lot to be desired !

 

ATB,

Hi Luks,

 

A lot depends on the car you are driving. For the x type [i had a 2.5 AWD] the 17" wheels were regarded as the optimum, and gave a comfortable ride as well as a fast one on the X type, which is 12 inches or more shorter than the XJ. It also has a smaller engine and less bodyweight.

 

Also a lot depends on the colour of the car if you are looking for appearance.  A white car spells black wheels,and any other colour says silver.

 

Stick with the 17" though!

 

I will look out for you when I am in Galway in the summer.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

What would be the offset changing from 20" to 18" on a XKR? I detest the BBS wheels and the method of checking tyre pressures.

Got 19's for sale. 😉 looks fantastic with no loss in ride comfort or acceleration. If fact i would say its better plus the handling! Had 17's before....

Pic below of them on the car. I can get up close ones if need be. They are BRAND NEW and i mean BRAND NEW!  So condition is.....as new! They didnt come of anything! I purchased them special order from Germany so they have only been fitted to my car. For 2 months and 1 month of that its been in the garage. As far as offset ill dig out invoice and have a look as top of head i dont know. Im selling them WITH the new tyres for £800. Making a huge loss on them 😯 but car is up for sale.
