Just wondering if anyone has measured the ID of the center bore on OE Jaguar wheels, as opposed to the well-known 73.85 mm measured at the hub. I’m basically trying to see how much tolerance there is between the hub OD and wheel ID, as the set of wheels I’m looking to buy have a 74.1 center bore. Thus far it seems this will be just a tad too large/loose, and I’ll have to get the center bore machined out to a 76.0 or 78.1 to then be able to use custom-ordered hub-centric rings. I know I could just treat it as a lug-centric wheel, as it will have tapered seats and lug nuts, and tighten it gradually and sequentially, but I’ve never liked that “solution” and I’d rather have a centering ring if at all possible.
Reason I can’t grab the measurement myself is multifold, as all my tools are at home in the US and the local friend whose home garage I borrow from time to time for minor DIY stuff doesn’t have calipers, on top of the fact that the current wheels are also not OE, so no guarantee that their center bore is correct, either. I know there are a number of folks here with aftermarket wheels as well, so I figured it would be better to ping the forum for info before making the order, rather than jumping in and having a “dang it” moment later.
