Default Online retailer for XK8 and all Jag wheels

I ran across http://www.wheels-and-rims.com/cgi-b...44107315827.5c<- that link an another forum and found the prices really good on OEM wheels. I also learned this from a gentlemen named Peter Bock -
[blockquote]
"that the 1997-2003 XJ8/XJR has the same wheel fitment spec as the 1997-2006 XK8/XKR, namely: <-- I had no idea!!

Bolt pattern: 5x120.65 mm
Offset: MID
Hub bore: 73.9 mm
Lug bolt: 1/2" right

In fact, the staggered 18" MILAN wheel was originally available on both the XJ8/XJR and XK8/XKR:

2001-02 XJ/XK H59723 18x8.5 Front Two-Piece Grooved Five-Spoke, SS Lip MILAN
2001-02 XJ/XK H59724 18x9 Rear Two-Piece Grooved Five-Spoke, SS Lip MILAN

That means if you want to stay with a factory wheel, but would like a little wider selection, you might consider one of these three non-staggered 18" and 19" factory XJ8/XJR wheels:

1998-99 XJ8 H59695 18x8 Wide Grooved Soft Five-Spoke PENTA

2000-01 XJ8 H59733 18x8 Thin Rounded Grooved Seven Spoke ASTEROID

2002-03 XJ8 H59738 19x8.5 Two-Piece Thin Nine-Spoke MONTREAL


To see pictures and prices of these wheels, go to WheelCollision.com:

There are also pictures of the PENTA and ASTEROID wheels at these sites:

Note that the 19" MONTREAL wheel is similar to, but smaller than the staggered 20" MONTREAL XK8/XKR wheel:
http://www.wheelcollision.com/jag5.htm

2001-06 XKR H59753 20x9 Front Two-Piece Thin Nine-Spoke MONTREAL
2001-06 XKR H59754 20x10 Rear Two-Piece Thin Nine-Spoke MONTREAL

So, if you like the look of the 20" XK8/XKR MONTREAL wheel, but would rather have it in an unstaggered 19" size, the 19" MONTREAL for the 2002-03 XJ8/XJR might be just the ticket."

[/blockquote]
This really opens the doors for alot of options if one is looking to upgrade the wheels. Heck, the Montreals found on the XKRs are only $350 and $370 each, staggered. That's alot less than I thought. Mine (the 19" Appolo style are only $295 and $325 each. So, in case a curb does find your lovely wheel, or you just want a taller/sportier set, the options are many and some are very affordable.
