Default XK rims

Hi lads, I need some info from you. My car came with some chromed 19 rims (see picture). I donít like chromed rims and I prefer 20 inches so Iím seriously considering to change them.
Do you know which 20 inch rims came as option for the x150 from 2012 and later?

If you have pictures even better!

There are several 20" designs from the factory that fit the 5.0L models. My favorite is called Vortex:

My favorite OE style is the five-spoke Takoba. Has anyone else been pretty disappointed at the scant aftermarket wheel options available for these cars?
I believe that the hub and bolt pattern for our XKs is a match for the latest Ford Focus RS, which has a myriad of wheel options--but different backspacing.
I'd love to hear from anyone who's successfully used wheel spacers on their XK to fit the aftermarket wheels they prefer.

I've searched the interwebz many times for a GOOD wheel cross-fit database and I can't find a one. Not one that DOES anything anyway. Closest I can find is basic Lug Center stuff, like such;
The 5 X 108 bolt pattern is common to VOLVO, JAGUAR, FORD, LINCOLN, MERCURY, PEUGEOT, PORSCHE, DODGE, AMC EAGLE, LAND ROVER and OLDSMOBILE vehicles.
Not much help there. Nothing on backspace, offset, width and diameter.

I'm SURE that in the vastness of all binary information that SOMEWHERE there is SOMETHING that would be a perfect tool for cross-fitting wheels, but Google returns 83,495,107,557,402 results in 0.083 seconds. I don't have a billion eons to spend searching every erroneous lead.

Course, I'm looking for very specific sizes that probably aren't made. i.e. 20 x 11 with +49 offset.

I suggest not using wheel spacers. Although this article was written for trucks, the same principles apply to cars.
The Truth About Wheel Spacers - Safety - Off-Road Magazine

There are lots of 20" OEM Jaguar and aftermarket wheels designed to fit the X150 without spacers. See this old thread about Coventry Wheels and the link to Braelin Wheels in Post #24.

This site seems to have a bit more then most, but still not fully what you are looking for. https://www.roadkillcustoms.com/whee...5x4.25-inches/

I also tried to see if tire rack would do anything for you, but I couldn’t find much there.

Next time I turn on one of my older computers I'll go through the book marks I have on the subject and share.

The information is out there.

As far as availability you can get most anything you want from a place that doesn't machine the lug pattern and mating service until an order is placed for the wheel. The wheel design will have a machineable block for the offset.

For example, the wheels I bought for my XK are available in [COLOR=center=#747474]20x11 offsets from +24 to +71.

It did take me a long time to find all the information I was looking for. Unfortunately it gave me less time to shop on style as I needed new tires and wanted to do it together.[/COLOR]

Cee Jay, I've checked the computers I can at the moment, and either the book marks are one that hasn't been happy since a power loss situation, or else I cleared them out.

I suppose by your 20x11 that you're trying to go wider than stock at the back?

Thanks for checking regardless.

Yes, I'd like either 315s or maybe even some 325 as they'd both fit inside the semi-cavernous rear wells. This is what I got from a site that (I can't remember who) sent me to get good dimensions;

This still leaves over half-inch of real clearance on the inside, and more than 1/4" on the outside for lip avoidance.
Fully custom-built wheels are over $1k each. That's a bit for something with probably zero Return-on-Investment. That's why I'd like to see cross-reference information as MAYBE something out there would be very close to what I need.
Tires are tires, need 'em anyway.

My wheels were by Forge Star. They have a few different styles.

Their range of size offerings are quite broad.

I don't remember what I paid for mine, but it was a lot less than $1K per wheel.

Its a bit hard for me to picture a good looking set of aftermarket wheels for your car, the color is so unique.

The single most frustrating thing about wheel shopping is wheel selling websites do not take "day to day" photos.

Instead they put up photos meant to "pop". Annoying.

"Pearl Metallic", so I guess it isn't even named a color, just the treatments. I'd first thought it would have been Lunar Grey, but that is a Silver color and not Grey. Not until I checked the paint code did I know. Wife's RX is named something like that, Stratus Grey or something, and it's quite close to mine.
I don't mind the Hyper Silver-type color wheels on it, and generic Gun Metal seems to go acceptably as well.

I looked at Forge Star, don't really care for any of them to a "buy" degree. A couple are close, but I don't like the extra crap on wheels such as fake bolts and stuff. Spokes protruding above the rim surface also make me unreasonably angry.

The thing about Full Custom wheels is that they well exactly fit. Semi-Custom (as in Not Built to Exact Specs) is that they will either need a spacer of some thickness or will just 'Make Do'.
I'm fine with Make Do at a much lower cost, but it is still Very Difficult to search anyone's inventory using Specs and not their generic "OEM-Type" listings. NOBODY I've tried even lists wheel sizes for any Jag over 9.5 width.
A quandary for me.

You could try emailing a place that is a dealer for a large variety of wheels, give them what you're looking for; let their sales guys do the work for you in finding your options. Its what they're paid for.

HA! Why didn't I think of that?
Dang, dude, I'll do that once spring has sprung.
