There are big benefits to be had in fitting larger wheels with lower profile tyres to the XJS and Series XJ saloon.
The original tyres are 70 profile which is very tall by today’s standards. Our wheels allow fitment of a range of profiles from 60 to 45 while keeping the diameter the same within a few percent. These lower profile tyres add much needed lateral stability to the car without significantly reducing ride comfort. Another major benefit is that a much wider range of modern tyres can now be fitted including Pirelli P6000, Falken ZE912, Yokohama AVS, Contisport M3 and many more.
Our design, in conjunction with Realm Engineering, is a 3 part wheel. The centre section is milled from a solid alloy billet, drilled to resemble the Ogle Design “Pepperpot” and finished in silver lacquer.
The outer rim is made from spun alloy and is a bright anodized finish. The inner rim is bolted from the rear into the centre and outer, and is plain anodized.
This design allows different sized rims to be fitted to a common centre.
The offsets have been designed to suit the XJS (1975 – 1996) and the ‘Series’ saloons from 1968 to 1985 (XJ6) and to 1992 (XJ12 S3). The centre bore and pitch circle are also correct for these cars.
Although the centre section is very strong, the design manages to keep the weight down to the original wheels – even though they are larger.
Either Daimler (shown above), Jaguar or KWE logos can be supplied in the centre.
Wheels are handmade and available to order with approximately 8 week lead time. Prices are under review but are currently £440 + carriage each. We can also supply the wheels fitted with tyres of your choice.
