15X10's are way to wide. I'd go for 15X8's on the front and maybe 8's or 8.5's on the back. 8.5's have the deeper dish but as a result the offset might be all wrong and the wheels would hang out of the gurards.

And what's wrong with big diameter rims on an XF. Simmonds FR19's would b a perfect match. Or just look at the 20's on MR0250.

i think clearing the suspension and guards would be a bigger drama than aquaplaining in the wet..... you cant fit rubber wide enough under the front of an XD-XF that will cause problems in the wet that cant be avoided by driving sensibly
