Winter Wheels + Tyres?

Post by XE123 » Sat Dec 01, 2018 2:31 pm

Afternoon All :)

I am looking at getting a set of wheels. What are the cheapest alloys + winter tyre combos that will fit on these cars? I am looking at a set of the 17" alloys and then some £104 per tyre Avons that I have found so far.

Any suggestions?

Cheers! :D

Why don't you just change the tyres. Do what I did and get a mobile fitter in to fit your new winter tyres then get him back next spring to change them back. My one charges about £15 per tyre. It's far cheaper than forking out several hundred pounds for wheels you might not like.

The cheapest set of tyres I can find come to £680 on the 19" wheels I have now. And then I still risk smashing up the alloys on kerbs etc if it does still slide :/

Someone has been listing a set of oem 17" Jaguar wheels complete with Pirelli winter tyres on ebay for the last 3 weeks that haven't sold with a starting bid of £400.
I have been watching them but it's collection only and I haven't got the time to travel half way across the country for them.

Do a search for Jaguar XE Winter and see what comes up.

No problem, happy I could point you in the right direction. Did you win them as I see this morning they have been sold?

Yes I did see them but although they do deliver I'm not sure on the colour and they are quite low on tread depth, 4mm, for winters.

Ahh that's true. I suppose the tread depth is what you need really :/
