Default Dimple wheels confusion

I'm looking to buy a set of Dimple wheels for my newly acquired X300 XJ6..

I noticed there are 7J and 8J versions available for the Dimples. Should I get the 7J or 8J if I'm looking to get a more classic/elegant look?

What are the differences between the two? I see that the 8J is slightly more 'concaved' than the 7J - apart from that, is there any other difference?

Thanks!

7J and 8J refer to the width of the wheel, i.e. 7 inch and 8 inch wide.

With the wider wheel you will need to fit wider tyres with a lower profile. So the 7J wheel should have 225/55/16 tyres and the 8J wheel should have 245/50/16 tyres.

I think the 7J is a 17 inch wheel used on the X308 model

I have seen a version of my 16 inch dimples in a larger version but the same dimple pattern

You can rattle around on this websight and see if you find the 7J
