Five stud wheels are 108mm PCD. Same as Volvo, some Alfa's (164) and maybe older Peugeots. Nothing else that I'm aware of. I'don't know the PCD for 4 stud wheels.

Does that mean that the wheels would be interchangable with a Volvo?

Same stud pattern but don't know about the offset and centre hole bore size. Also different widths required front an rear. Saw some nice 2 piece rims in the local Volvo dealer. Lots of $$$ but probably could only use the centres and still have to find suitable rims. Been looking at the feasibility of having spacers made that would allow for a more common stud pattern eg 114.3x5 or BMW/Holden. Why did Lotus decide to use such an obscure PCD?

They can custom make any bolt pattern and offset you want. It seems that using +25mm spacer on the lotus is pretty popular for getting a more agressive look, so you could have a +25mm adaptor to run 114.3x5 wheels and open your self up to a gigantic range of options. Probably run you 300+ per pair though, but I think it would be worth having the wheel options vs paying a premium for custom lotus rims.
