maybe you can have the chevy wheels machined to increase bore. the hub size is larger on the jag. make sure they will clear the calipers before you go through the trouble of having machine work though.

BMW rims will fit - almost.
The centre bore is bigger on the BMW rims, so thats possible to fill with an adapter ring.

BMW 3 and 5 series all way back to the 80's have (metric) bolt pattern
5 x 120mm
Jaguar / Chevy bolt pattern translatd to metric numbers are 5 x 120,6mm.

0,6 mm is 0,0236 inches.

A lot of aftermarket aluminum wheels are lug centric rather than hub centric and may have a larger center hole.

Rally America sell rims that look like the original Ford F1 rims but have dual bolt patterns ( 5 on 4.5 and 5 on 4.75 ). The 4.75 pattern fits the Jag IFS ... and the center hole is large enough to work. I used a set of the Rally America rims on my Jag IFS ... worked great and could use the original style hubcap also. Custom sizes and offset available.

Deuce has it right. The metric jag pattern is close enough to chevy that it's not an issue. The center hole is the only problem. Most custom wheels have a center bore large enough to fit anything. Go with an after market wheel and they'll fit fine. I'm running chrome smoothies on my F1, I'll soon paint the centers to look like the ones pictured.
