19" & 20" Tyres


Recommended Posts

Lotus RRP:

19" - £474.00

20" - £786.00

That's £2,520 for a set of 4 or just £1,572 for a pair on the rear. :huh:

Camskill sell the fronts for £241.49 and the rears for £428.89 which is much more reasonable, £1,340 for the set or £857 for the rears. They look from the Camskill website to be the correct LS fitment too.

Shop around!

They've been done by the looks of it! Camskill are selling the same tyre for not much away from 50% of the price!

NO tyre is worth that. Period. How do companies get stitched up like this?

This might be a silly question, and a bit off topic, but, would having the larger wheels raise the car's ground clearance by half an inch?

Or is the suspension lowered accordingly from the factory to keep the ground clearance consistent with the cars equipped with the original wheels?

How many miles are you guys getting from these tires?

The 19/20 Corsas are roughly $450/$790 or ~$2500 for a set of 4.

The PZero are ~$850 for 4.

I got these prices from tirerack

Thanks!

In general when one changes wheel size, the tire chosen for the new wheels should have different aspect ratio than the originals so that the entire diameter of the wheel/tire combination doesn't change. Thus no need to change ride height.

The above is a general answer. It is often difficult to get exact matching total diameters. I have not done the calculations for the 18/19 and 19/20 wheel/tire combos. Knowing Lotus I would not be suprised if there was a few mm difference in total diameter that they might adjust the ride height and maybe other suspension setting to optimize the different tire size.

I think new they were an extra 2k so I don't know if this price is right or in euros?!

Never mind Euro, it would need to be Drachma

You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unwelcome season.

I will sell my set of black ones (19/20). No scratches, 4000km. I'm just waiting my new ones.

You're looking for the Diamond Cut, Justin?

Why not just buy them through their online shop?

You can't choose the color (matt black, silver and anthracite (or gold, like the Sector111 ones, I think) and there are not the 19 front wheels on the online shop. Products are online only when available?

I've been thinking about it, but realistically I don't think I'll be able to justify the money people are wanting for them.. I would probably get them done black aswell

I will sell mines 2300£ + shipment for the set with tyres (50%). I hope to have the new ones (PB Racing) late August so I will post an advert with detail pics at that moment.
