Recommended Posts

I am looking to get new set of wheels for my s type as the wheels that are on it are not original but I am having trouble getting wheels to fit that are off other jags as they want go over the calipers . The wheels look the same as the 10 spoke you normally see on a stype!!!

Hi Barry,

 

Is it possible that the calipers are not the original ones fitted by Jaguar and that the wheels and calipers came as a set.

 

I keep a file on the cars I have owned with every receipt for all items bought and used. I know it sound a bit of overkill, but have found it very useful on several occasions to do with warranties.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

That is very strange Barry.

 

What size wheels are you looking for?

 

The wheels on my car are the standard s type wheels  - 245  40  18".

 

You can check the exact specification of your car as it came from the factory by getting on to a particular site  : VinDecoderz.com

 

It will give you the detail of the wheels  --  mine read   -- 8.0 X 18 WHEEL SPORT STYLE 0

 

That might assist.  Google will /should also tell you what those wheels look like.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
