Wheels for an XA coupe

I own an xa coupe but am in the US at the moment and want to buy some wheels for it but I don't know the bolt pattern measurements and also the offset i would need to fill the rear guards and also the offset for the front so the wheels wouldnt hit the suspension. I am thinking of getting 18x8 and 18x10 but there's nothing here to compare them to I need the exact measurements in order to get them.

Could anyone help me with this as I only have a month or so before all my stuff gets shipped home and I would love to throw a set of 18inch rims in with it.

Re: Wheels for an XA coupe

i have a landau coupe you would have no problems with the 18x8 frounts and the18x10rears you will need about 0 offset but a little positive is ok should be able to run 295 tyres on the rear without folding the guards. i have 17x8 and 17x9.5 centerlines billets with 12mm offset and have heaps of room. buy the 18s as tyres are easier and cheaper to get for the rear

Re: Wheels for an XA coupe

Well 10" or 8" on the back is OK, BUT any more than 7" at the front will NOT fit!!
I do have a set (2) of "Dominators 8" spare as these did NOT fit on the front of my XB Coupe and I did have to get a matching set of 7" to maker it work.
This is my expierience and what ever it is worth to you.

That's BS. You can fit 9" wide rims on the front. You just have to get the right offset. I should be taking delivery of my new rims in the next few days and they are 8" wide.
