[xj40] Will 1994 Jag 16 inch wheels fit 1992?

Hi all

My 1992 Jag XJ6 4.0 Sovereign has 15 inch wire wheels, installed by
the dealer when the car was new back in 92.

The wires have not stood up to western Canadian winters very well
over the years, a great deal of the chrome on the rims and spokes
has gone missing in action, and they have been a bit of an issue to
keep true and balanced. I haven’t been able to find a set of 92
factory mags.

I recently bought a totalled 1994 Jag XJ6 4.0 Sovereign parts car,
which came complete with five Jag factory mags, but in 16 inch,
fitted with 225/60 16 tires. I took the tires off the 16 inch rims
and have delivered all five of the 1994 16 inch rims to our local
wheel repair shop to be checked for true, fixed as required,
stripped and refinished. Then it struck me that I hadn’t checked to
see if the 16 inch rims/tires will fit the 92. Enthusiasm
overriding common sense.

Before I spend the money for five new tires to be mounted on the
refinished 16 inch rims, does anybody out there know if the 16 inch
wheels/tires will fit a 92 without clearance problems?

Thanks in advance.

Paul,

My ‘91 has 16’’ wheels so you’ll have no problem fitting 16’’ wheels
to your car.

Just to double check, here is a post I did some time ago listing
the part numbers of the wheels that will fit our cars.
