My XK8 had Antera Type 143 20" wheels on it when I bought it. That particular Antera model looks quite fine on the XK although I'd prefer Jaguar-branded wheels -- it'd feel just more right.

As far as ride is concerned, I haven't really had any problems with it but I haven' t tried smaller wheels yet either (my winter tires have 17" or 18"). If the road is worn by tires the 20" wheels tend to follow the "track". Overall I've been satisfied with them, on some very old roads (no asphalt but rocks) they are actually more confortable than my S-Type due the size of the tires (doesn't go to every hole ;-)

I'm planning to change them to either 18", 19" (if available) or 20" Jaguar wheels next year, just for the brand and more the look I prefer..
