The wheels are still available.

I will send you some pictures over the weekend if you let me have your contact details.

Thanks for the interest.

Pictures of wheels.

While I have all four centre caps, unfortunately two of the centre motifs are missing.

When I had a set, I was never able to obtain confirmation of the colour code of the dark segments. The people I took them to said it was "range rover grey" or something like that. My set went on an XJS.

Later cars had Kent wheels with the centres painted a 'gunmetal' colour but I seem to recall that earlier wheels had a darker shade, much closer to black. Mike.

I think I like the closer to black look. If I ever get another XJS, that's what I will do.

Hammerite black smoothrite works well and is easy to touch-up. :D Mike.
