Default Tires and money on an X300

In addition to my earlier post -regarding needing readers input regarding a 1996 XJ6 -TIRES & WHEELS. The wheels on the XJ6 looking a little "boring" -no offense -just taste. My stock chrome wheels on the 2006 XJ8 may look nice on the 1996 car. Yes??

The tires size on the 2006 is 235-55-17 -and near new

The tire size for the XJ6 -SHOULD BE: 225-60-16 -the tires onthe carare GENERAL's and look like new snow tires!

My speedo will not be so accurate - but how about the look of them? Noise - ? Handling? Should I just stick to whats on the car now -

This may save me $800 in tires - but is it good in the long run?

THANKS very much once again for the help.

Cheers,

John

Please try one and report back, my understanding from reading the experience of others is that the bolt pattern is different. Thus I am led to understand that X350 wheels will not fit on any preceding model.

The picture is my '97 VDP with a decent set of'94 Kiwi's. I'm not a big fan of the chrome trim on most cars, but its addition along with the wheels helped transform a big refrigerator into a car that people notice and appreciate.

I still have a nicer set of the wheels on the shelf, if that looks like an appealing option.
