My first set were MWS that had been fitted to an old XJS. My second set were Dayton from the US again from an XJS so I knew they would fit, of course they didn't! The front wheels needed 3mm spacers and a bit of a grind off on the front callipers. The Daytons look far better as the central hub is a lot smaller so you see more spoke, with the MWS the central hub is very large and looks knowhere near as nice.

If I were buying new I would go Smash's route and buy knock ons from Dayton Australia, I would however fit 15" wheels not 16". I have tried a few different tyre sizes and found 215/65x15 to be ideal. Anything /70x15 tends to be for a van so you can't get the correct speed rating without spending a lot of money.
