Lemme get some input!

Was cruising through the classifies on craigslist the other night and found a hidden gem with the right bolt pattern. Its a great deal, plastidipped dark anthracite grey. I would be putting them on my Mk3 ingot silver hatch, what do you think?

See the wheel and tire guide for ideas that should work. I'm not sure what the hub bore spacing is on the jaguar wheels though as the Focus ones are 63.9 mm. Chances are they will work fine as long as you get them centered properly before tightening down the lugs, might need the wheel adapters to center the wheel on the hub though.

Assuming "wheel pilot diameter" means hub diameter, then they should fit. A quick Google search showed the wheel pilot diameter of that year S Type to be 2.49 inches, or 63.246mm.

They should fit. Not guaranteeing but the Jaguar has 12.5" rotors and two piston calipers, bore size might just be perfect. And the Jaguar came with 245/40/18s for tires, I'd go down to a 235/40/18 to keep the Speedo the same and your profile the same.

if they are meant for a 400hp V8 Jag then I bet they are good enough for a Focus. Try them out. Oh and they were an $800 option to upgrade from the stock 17" wheels.

And I said the thing About the brakes because at 5mms more inward on your offset (60mm jag wheel vs. 55mm Focus Titanium wheels) it should not have any impact on rubbing.

Generally, going with an offset that's higher than OEM, isn't recommended.

However, if you like them, go for it. They should work.

Make sure you get lugs with the wheels because jags take a special lug and I know to get them from jag they are over 7.50 a lug around here
