hi all, i've got a set of 19" arden alloys on my s-type. im trying to sell my car privately, but not having much luck. i went to a local garage and enquired about a trade-in and the guy said he would only give me book price for it, i pointed out the the wheels alone retail at over £2k and he said it didnt matter what wheel it had on they would only give me book price. so that being the case im thinking of playing the guy at his own game and taking the Ardens off and replacing them with the cheapest, crappiest second hand things i can lay my hands on that will fit on the car and selling the decent ones on ebay to try and recoup a bit of cash. does anyone think it would be worth the effort?does anyone know how much people would be prepared to pay for a second hand set? i could see any the same on ebay. two of the tyres are only a couple of months old and the other 2 have plenty of life left in them

As far as I can tell, the Arden 19" alloys have the same part number for both X-Type & S-Type.
So, theoretically they fit. I've seen a few X-Types with these wheels fitted.

i think your wheels might be a bit too good for what im after. i really want to put the crappiest things i can find on it, i was thinking more along the lines of sticking 4 space savers on(if thats even legal) or , at worst, a bog standard set of alloys and getting as much cash back as possible. just trying to minimise the amount im gonna lose by trading the car in, as ive been told ill get the same for it no matter what wheels it has on

There's four sets of 16" OEM S-Type wheels with tyres on ebay right now

Jaguar 16" original alloy wheels ( set of 4) with tyres in very good condition | eBay £150
JAGUAR S TYPE ALLOY WHEELS AND TYRES | eBay £150
jaguar wheel with tyres | eBay £120
JAGUAR S TYPE ALLOY WHEELS WITH 4 GOOD PIRELLI TYRES 225-55-16 | eBay £175

Just depends on where you are in relation to the seller.

BTW there was a set of 19" Ardens for sale on this forum a while back, they were all knackered (worst kerb-rash i'd seen on such nice wheels) i forget how much he was asking but it was crazy money for such poor condition. You can see the new price on the Arden website.

thats the tyre size :)
are the wheels 8.5 or 9.5
mine has 8.5 front with 245-35-19s
and 9.5 rears with 275-30-19s
if yours are 8.5 all round they are not big enough for what I need.
I am after a set but in the same wheel size I have
