Jaguar and Daimler Mk2, MkX, S-Type, 240, 340, 420, 420G, V8 250, XJ6 Series 1:

The E-Type and Derrington style wheels are made to fit up to a standard 6cyl E-Type hub (boss) which will fit directly in your car. These are available from the various Jaguar parts suppliers such as SC Parts, SNG Barratt etc. I do no supply the boss/hub kits.

On the Derrington wheel, if you wish to retain the original early saloon horn ring/bar setup, then be sure to order the appropriate hub/boss kit for it as they are a little different to the standard E-Type item.

E-Type 1961-1971:

In the case of fitting these wheels in an E-Type 3.8 or 4.2, you would simply use your original hub and horn assembly.

XK140/XK150 and Mk1:

The four spoke wheel is made to fit up to the commonly available Moto-Lita boss/hub kit part number B32OE. This allows you to retain your original horn push assembly.

The middle wheel in the above picture was made to fit onto a readliy available Nardi hub (boss), making for easy installation in a later Jaguar XJ6 or XJS.

The wheel below was supplied to a customer who made a modification to the Mk2 horn push button so that it fits nicely in place of the E-Type one.

One-off Jaguar XJ8/XK8 Steering wheel, modified with Walnut burl rim and boxwood inlays back in 2000. This was literally a one-off, and I have no plans at the moment to do any more :)
