Suits the 40 perfectly.
I can’t see how fitting a 17” wheel would fowl the V12 brakes, since a 16” fits?
I have not tried it though.
Surely the 16” Lattice wheels is the time honoured favourite/ original XJ12 wheel. If you can find a set!
naki, It didn't make sense to me either that the XJR wheels would fit a 40 but not the XJ12. After some more research, I seem to have confirmed the XJR wheels will fit on the XJ12 without any mods.
My XJ12 is black and came with 16 x 7.5 lattice wheels. I do love this wheel style and searched endlessly for a set for my SIII and never found any 16". However, I'm really tempted to go to the 17" XJR wheels on my XJ12 after seeing the photos of your black cat wearing them. I would definitely hold on to the lattice wheels though. Decisions, decisions.
I see the 1995-97 XJR with these wheels came with 225/45/17 tires. Do you recall the tire size on yours?
