Default Who makes these wheels


Iím new to the site and I was wondering if anyone could tell me who makes these wheels and where I could get a set? My name is Mark and Iím glade to own a Jag. 1990 XJ40 with 45000 original miles on it. Itís in great shape and I would really love it if I could find a set of these wheels.

I *think* they are Aston DB7 wheels, but happy to be proven wrong...

They are indeed DB7 wheels, I have a set on my TWR XJS, they look even better on it than on a 40 or 300.

Do they bolt right on; size, width, hub, offset all correct without spacers or modification?

Since they bolt fine to a 40, they will also bolt to an x300. No problems on XJS at all.



Its my never ending resto project. Currently on hold due to my daily x300 that needs attention but hopefully more progress will be made this summer.

PS

I do have new Jag inserts for centre caps too, just not fitted yet

They look great...I still think they look better on my car so if you ever want to sell them let me know. Just kiddin. I’m gonna start saving money to get a set if I can ever find them.

The number of Jags i've seen with DB7 wheels makes me wonder how many DB7's have been wrecked.

At the risk of striking a controversial note, I don't think its a question of DB7s being wrecked, simply owners swapping out the wheels for the better looking later model DB7 wheels. Beauty is, of course, in the eye of the beholder.......!

Stretching the topic... The Asteroids are great. But I always thought it would be cool if Jaguar had equipped all six-cylinder cars with six-spoked wheels (or a six-point design like the Dimple wheel), and all 12 cylinder cars with twelve-spoked wheels, with various styles. Now I see... Aston Martin may have done exactly that?! I may need a set too.
