New wheels - Mak XLR's


Recommended Posts

Now then guys, thought id give you all a bit of a heads up...

In the next few weeks Im going to start shipping a new style of wheel over from Italy to suit the Toyota engined Elise/Exige/2-11. (MAK - XLR's 7x16, 8x17)

Basically its a result of our recent racing trip to Imola with LCE that I have agreed to become a UK agent for them (the rims are being heavily used in the Lotus Cup Italy Championship).

They are the same sizes as the std 240r wheels - 7x16, 8x17 (with them having a 7" wide front allows running with slicks if you wish). They are not as light as the 240r rims but the price is

very favourable in comparison so would be ideal as a second set or even your main rims if you wanted to keep the others for best. Not only that but they look absolutely fantastic on the cars.

Price wise they should come in at

Hi John,

I have them in stock now.

Mak XLR (black series)

3 sets left available @ £1100 (inc VAT) per set

Full details -

Front 7Jx16 / PCD 4x100 / ET30* / 6.9kg

Rear 8Jx17 / PCD 4x100 / ET35* / 8.1kg

They come complete with MAK centre caps and a full set of wheel bolts (x16). If you want lotus centre caps then the ones from the 240r wheels fit and can be ordered through your lotus dealer (or use the ones you got with your car)

*please note the ET dimensions are slightly different to that of the std fit wheels (std = F31, R38). This has been done on purpose to give a slightly wider track both front and rear (2mm wider overall at the front and 6mm wider overall at the rear).

There are no clearance issues to worry about and after running them at Oulton yesterday I can confirm they work very well on the car :)

(sorry Bibs cant log on where the f/s section I can use is??)
