Default Can you use F-Type wheels on an XF?

I have an 2012 XF Portfolio and bought some F-type propeller wheels. At quick glance I thought they were the same wheel sizes as they had the same tires P245/40ZR19's. However, I found out that the rear tires were actually P275/35/ZR19's.
Dumb *** me for not realizing that the wheels are actually different in their offset. Through my quick look, I only looked at the diameter and width thinking these would work.

I've been looking up the specs on the wheels and haven't found what offset the wheels are. One one site it said 51mm offset for my original Caravela wheels and the offset on the the rear propeller wheels are 27mm but nothing was listed for the front wheels.

Anyone know if this will work for my XF?

For those who wanted to know.. I tried mounting the wheels today. The front ones for the F-Type are the proper size the rear ones protrude outwards too much.

19x 8.5 offset 49 fronts
19x9.5 offset 27 rears

The Caravela's I have apparently are 19x8.5 with 49mm offset.
Bummer.. Have to look for two front propellers

The suspension is identical for current XK, XJ, XF and F Type. Wheels designed for one will fit the other.

Sorry, but no.
Harry has proven that the very different offsets of the rear wheels mean that F-Type rear wheels will "fit" on an XF or XJ but they will stick out way too far.
And the same in reverse, if you tried to fit OEM XF rear wheels to an F-Type they would sit miles inboard and quite possibly foul on suspension components.
This is rear wheels only, yes the front wheels will be interchangeable across the range as they all use the same offset or very close (in the range of +45 to +49 IIRC).
Speaking as a current F-Type and previous XFS and XFR owner.
