Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
Hi, i have a jaguar x type 3.0ltr 2004..i have just purchased a set of inovit dtm alloy wheels 8.5x19" with 235x35-19 tyres but the problem i am now having is that when passengers get in the back it makes the rear tyres rub on the arch when going over uneven road surfaces and also when taking off from a standing start,,also the front wheels slighty rub on the inner wing covers when on full lock,,i was told that upgrading from 17" rims with 225x45x17 tyres to 19" with 235x35 tyres would give me no problems but it has give me lots of stress as the replacement wheels cost me nearly a thousand pounds and i cant even travel with rear passengers,,is 8.5j to wide or is there any modification i can get done to stop the wheels rubbing?as i really like these wheels,i gave the company i purchased the wheels from all my jaguar details and surely they should have told me that the wheels i wanted to buy would be no good but they said they would be fine,,not the case..please please help me with any suggestions you have,,kind regards dave (uk)
I really don't think you will be able to use those rims and tires, probably the biggest is going to be 18" wheels. The 8.5" rim is too wide. An 18" came as the stock size on the sport package for the Jag, it's 7.5 wide. I don't think who sold them to you really knew if they would fit or not. Without wheel spaces and raising the suspension, I don't think they'll work on the car.
