The original wheels off my 2000 DB7 VV fit perfectly on my 2002 Jaguar XJR R1 (Brembo brake package), in fact the brakes on that car are almost identical to the AM.

Also tried the wheels on my 1988 XJ12, they fit but the centre hub on the fronts sticks out far enough as to stop the centre caps from fitting.

I would think though that they would fit on any X305 (and earlier XK8)Jag as they use the same front hubs as the V12 Vantage.

Wayne l agree with you on this site,do you think it worth a PM
to a select few to see if we could get them to try it. They would have
to be none members of course.
The wheels you mentioned are any 14.5 ET, and could l use any with
with an ET of more than 14.5 please.

I think the vantage wheels, which are around 32-34 ET, fit on the i6, but not 100% sure. There may be an issue with the centre caps fouling on the hub bearing caps, I seem to remember reading. The Vantage wheels would sit around 20mm further INboard on an i6. I'm not sure that would be a good thing.

If you're after some different wheels have you considered a set of the speedline magnesium wheels which were an option for the i6, they look very smart.

Wayne was that my answer to the 14.5 ET on the DB7 i6.
Still looking for a spare so can put blow up spare in shed.
And if l have an ET of 14.5 what is the highest ET l can use please.
Yes it was.

6" is the measurement from the inner outer rim to the wheel mounting face which comes out to 34 ET in metric.

The wheel is 8" wide X 18" in diameter.

I guess your 14.5 ET came from your current compact spare?
