I have recently bought a 2000 Daimler Super V8 & have 2 queries :-
Daimler wheels - instead of having the elegant Daimler wheels it has 18 inch Jaguar BBS wheels. My car has to have 18 inch wheels because of the size of the front brake callipers. I have looked on the internet & found on eBay 17 inch Daimler wheels but not 18 inch . Were 18inch Daimler wheels made ?
Tyre Profile - what is the largest profile tyres one can fit to 18 inch wheels to provide a more comfortable ride ?
you’re on the wrong forum - while over 50 years the cars were sold as “XJ” the technical development ushered in quite different cars, dealt with in various forums at this site. You’ll be right on https://forums.jag-lovers.com/c/x300/23.
All that being said there might be some members of this list able to give you some info …
I had exactly the same issue with my SV8. I preferred ride over ultimate grip and bought a set of 16s only to find they foul on supercharged cars. The Daimler compromise was 17s which will fit fine (18s were XJR).
Yes I do have grey callipers with Jaguar on them . The car has 255/40 x 18 wheels . I think because of the callipers I am stuck with 18 inch wheels . Can I fit 45 or 50 profile tyres to make it more comfortable. I used to have a Daimler XJ 40 & it was supremely comfortable & wafted around !
