Jaguar XJ-S Wheels

Jaguar XJ-S Wheels

The objective of this page is to illustrate the various types of wheels that may be used on a Jaguar XJ-S.  For organization, they are divided into three categories:

Wheels that came fitted on the XJ-S from the factory.

Wheels that came fitted on other Jaguars from the factory, and will fit an XJ-S.

Non-Jaguar wheels that fit the XJ-S.

It should be noted that there may be some differences in just what will fit an XJ-S.  Notably, in the early 90's the IRS was changed from the venerable inboard brake system to an outboard brake arrangement, and indications are the later outboard brake configuration -- in concert with the revised bodywork from 1992 on -- will permit the use of wider wheels than the earlier cars could handle.

Also note that, somewhere along the line, Jaguar apparently installed some spacers in the steering rack to give the car a larger turning circle -- perhaps to clear wider wheels.

And with the introduction of the XJ40 in 1988 came a revised lower ball joint design that will fit an XJ-S and reportedly provide a little more clearance for wheels.


Please help support the move to the new site, and DONATE what you can.
A big Thank You to those who have donated already!
