I would like to change the stock 17" wheels of a 98 XK8 for a set of 18" Sport wheels.<br>Is it a simple change operation, or will I have to change the suspension settings?<p>Thanks <p>Paulo

You should not have to change the suspension.<p>FYI. The Xk8 (as well as many other Jags) have a bolt pattern of 5x120. The acceptable offset range is 18-20, and the center bore is 73.7. You may need these in case you decide to use a non-Jaguar rim.<p>Justin

My mistake... forgot to type the .65 in the bolt pattern.<p>The correct pattern is 5x120<b>.65</b>. There is a difference.<p>Justin

I've got chrome Enkei Excocent wheels, 18x8.5 +12 for sale. 50 miles driven on them total. However one rim has a small ding on the lip. I bought them new w/o researching =( I paid $600 each, and am willing to sell them for $1800, OBO. I can provide pics if anyone is seriously interested. <br>
