He wants rims not tires, he said he had a great deal on tires already.

Actually, if you read his question over again, he was asking about tires too.

Just so you are aware. A 275/60R20 is a 33 inch tall tire. You would need either a 4 inch Superlift or 4 inch BDS to clear those tires. Unless you took a sawzall to your XK and completely destroy it to fit that size tire. Members have been known to do that. lol

He is looking for wheel suggestions.

The tire will need more room than you have now. 3-4" lift with spacers or proper backspacing on the wheel.

7.5 (stock width)wont be wide enough, you'll need to get an 8 or better wheel.

Go to the discount tire website and look for a chart for wheel to tire sizes.
AEV is another good palce for wheels. Ask the experts about wheel sizing.

Get the Rockstar wheels if you want a particular wheel suggestion, or Cragar soft 8...only my suggestions.......
