Wheel required

Recommended Posts

Looking for 18 inch triton wheel, to be used as full sized spare, due to the fact that the get you home wheel supplied with my S type wont even go on the hub without fouling the EPB. No tyre req. Admin please feel free to remove if not allowed and accept my apologies.

There's a few on flea bay, just put jaguar triton wheel in the search. They aren't too bad but be wary of the repaired one. They will probably be OK for a spare.

Don't discount a repaired wheel as alloy welding is an art and will be done professionally.   

If it's a spare your after any style of wheel should do as you'll be reminded to get the proper wheel repaired so you don't forget and get stranded with a flat spare!!

Had cause to change the wheel to the get you home tyre through  puncture, after fitting, the EPB would not release, so ended up putting the punctured wheel back on and inflating it to get me to the nearest tyre company where i had 2 rear tyres (Goodyear Eagle F1) fitted because i like to have same tyres on the axle. Hope this answers your question Simjag.

Ok, but why did the wheel hit the EPB?

Cheers.

You tell me!  Havn't got a clue methinks its the wrong wheel the dealer put in on purchase because its even the wrong jack. Dealers, you got to love them.

Thanks.
