Which wheels on the 211?

Recommended Posts

I have the option of either choosing the CUP240R wheels or the 7-twin-spoke wheels.

Which should I get ?

I will probably never run slicks on the car. Are the 7-twins lighter than the wider CUP wheels ?

also, which ones look better on a black 211?

Thanks for any help! B-)

Agree with Jo. The very latest 7 spoke ones are a few grams lighter but the same size as the Cup wheels.

Thanks for your replies guys.

I used to have the CUP wheels on my Elise

and the 211 comes with the 7-twins. If I take the CUP wheels, then the dealer will swap the wheels on both cars.

So would you still take the CUP wheels knowing that

a) they are not new, have been used for 10k miles (though in good shape)

b) are heavier than the 7-twins and the newer CUP wheels

Since I had them on my previous Elise, I might be wanting a different look now...but I'm afraid of eventually regretting my choice shortly after!
