So there are now a few aftermarket wheel makers for the Lotus but very few willing to make 16" and get the offsets right. I found these guys http://www.ccwheel.com/ Perfect fit the first time...

I run a 16/7.5 fronts and 18/10.5 rears with Kumo V710 semi/slicks

Thanks guys, during the wheel tire seperation the left rear orange wheel was damaged beyond repair but the two rears have been replaced at no charge after pointing out the issue to Kodiak ...... I guess my reputation had something to do with it..censored.gif...

So now I have a set of orange, biege, red and now neon yellow.... My new Kumo V710 should show up this week......

Better to have spare wheels when everything is so odd ball....

The nice thing about dealing with CCW is that they had the wheels built and shipped in ten days unworthy.gif...It took Kodiak 10 months..thumbdown.gif

It's not how far you go but how fast you get there.....cool.gif They are US road legal.

The red looked like scabs with the brake dust I thought.. I still have a set of beige Kodiaks with Yoko A048's for the wet.....
