Only XJ40 rims will fit! Don't try the Pre-88, or Post 94 without being 100% sure, but I'm 90% sure neither will work!

I saw some real nice ones on Ebay and pm'd 93xj a while back.......check ebay.
You might have to try typing rims / alloys / jag alloys/ xj rims etc etc a few times, but you probably will find a selection

Check out these sites...really good prices if you ask me.

http://www.wheelcollision.com/jag2.htm

And if you want to just refurb and chrome them...

http://www.wheelconcepts.com/JAGUAR.htm#JAGUAR%20XJ

And then another 'buy the chrome wheel package" site

http://www.calchrome.com/wheels_jaguar.php, all US sites I believe. Good luck.

Hard to find jags in graveyards though...they are very far and few inbetween...you can easily find a taurus or sable or lincoln ls but even then the rims on those perspective cars are either butt ugly or smaller than what we already have on them!

i cant find rims for the price i was expecting. 1010tires.com is a really good place though for wheels. but 450 per wheel is a little much

Tirerack.com...I'd go their if you are trying to get rims...

Nevermind I just looked and there was nothing??? That was weird the only thing I could get was winter rims and tires for your ride and they didn't even show which rims!!!

I've worked with Detroit Wheel & Tire before, they repaired two damaged CTS wheels for me and did a great job. They're much friendlier than the Ye Olde Wheel Shoppe people in MD.

I ordered a set of Borbet wheels through Tire Rack and was shocked to find out they sent the wrong size...VERY unusual for them to make a mistake! They will be calling me today with other wheel options, most likely 17-inchers, which I would prefer anyway, if they'll fit without issue!

Thats good to hear...when I talked to that guy he was really cool and everything. I'd use him if some of their wheels weren't so expensive...

Tirerack seems like a good place and most people are extremely satisfied with the result...I'm sure they'll be helping you out as it sounds like they are!

Turns out Tire Rack doesn't have a wheel for my MY97 VDP! [sm=boohoo.gif]Went to local Jag dealer...they said up to '03 either 16x7 or 18x7 will work, but their wheels are at least $500 each. Yikes.
