I'm with Dale...

It's understandably difficult for Jaguar to market the US. There's a bunch of us owners who are clearly American in our desire for a Jujistu or Spiderman style wheel presentation to suit the modern-day muscle car look. Salutes!

But there's also a bunch of us who hear "Jaguar" and think of the continental european look of straight no-nonsense spokes like Simon Templar's volvo, or Robert Mcall's Jag from the Equalizer tv show. Respect goes out to them too!
Jaguar is definitely trying to go young and racy, rather than posh and elegant.

I like the 6-spoke standard that came with my XE a LOT more than I thought I would (danged things grew on me--they're appropriate).

But I am on the hunt for winter tires for next year, and I want to pick from the XF style of wheels. They look a little more "mature", and I want to try saving money by going for a "last year" model. None of these pictures suits me. Some simple spoke-style rims is what I want. Anyone who knows where I can get a set of XF 'Libra' rims or 'Lyra' rims, please let me know.

Hey, remember, those of you looking to build a winter set of wheels,... try to avoid 18" and 19" rims. 17" is less expensive, and gets you a "taller" tirewall (what you need to stay safe in the snow and sinkholes).
