A problem with that thinking when it comes to wheels is that the offset and bolt pattern severely limits the market to sell used aftermarket wheels from a Jaguar 5.0L XKR.

The wheels will fit a Volvo wagon of a short year period and have a decent offset for the car.

They will fit some XF's and XJ's.

They may fit the latest generation of Ford Mustang, but I haven't checked if the offsets would work.

That is about it.

There are some other cars with similar bolt bolt patterns, but the offset needed would make for incompatibility.

From a value perspective, this isn't like your Porsche 928 where there is a serious aftermarket wheel market, and a multitude of 944's, 928's, and 911's, spanning decades of shared lug patterns and offsets. (There are also several light trucks and VW's that fit the Porsche wheels as well.)

I would pursue your other modifications first, and see where it leaves you.

Aftermarket wheels offer a terrible value proposition from weak demand and limited market.

The Porsche 928 was very similar... Only a select few manufacturers has the right bolt pattern and offset available. Many go with 3 piece custom for that reason.

The wheels that allow for custom offsets are typically $5k or more for a set or quality forged, but there are a few companies that do custom offset alloys in jaguar bolt pattern for under $2k (see Stance wheels - similar to HRE, work wheels, etc).

Either way, wheels are definitely at the bottom of the list in terms of priority and how I want to spend money on the car.

Just making sure since you mentioned resale value.

I bought and use aftermarket wheels and I am happy with their performance.

I do consider them a considerable value loss based on my research before getting a set made to order.

The Porsche is easier for someone to figure out how to jack and change out wheels, owning multiple wheel sets is more common.

A barely related observation, the tire weights for 19" vs 20" for these cars remain about the same. It isn't like my 944 where there is a lot of difference between 16" and 17".

I think that the internals are actually different on the PAE back box and they have different part numbers.

That picture was to compare an XKR with an XKR-S so I would assume that the back box was different. The question I thought was asked was is the back box the same for the XKR with standard exhaust and the XKR with the PAE option exhaust.

Correct, but the PAE backbox and the XKR-S have the same part number which is different to the standard one.
