Maybe I should wait til I'm more awake before I stare at a bright screen in bed :P
Looks good with the black buddy - but I'm not a fan of the yellow!

wow ... how do they fit and feel?!? 

They’re super wide on the wheels. I won’t drive my car until my new Nitrons and Tillett seats arrive which is expected to be mid-end Feb so I can’t say until then. Not driving the car is killing me, but I want it to be perfect next time I drive it!

I’ve of course driven the 430 Cup which has the same and there was lots of grip and they seemed like great tyres so I’m confident I’ll be happy!

The standard lotus forged wheels require a 3mm spacer.  The 380 and 430 Cup have different subframe and damper top to the cars before them. There is a chance that the tyre will rub on the damper, but I am hoping it won’t! Need the Nitrons to arrive to find out...

I thought you had the slightly more aggressive offset wheel from Dave?

Shouldn’t that give you that room...

Yes to different offset, so I don’t need a spacer. Still not sure if it’ll rub or not though

Difference between the 430 cup wheels and mine is 1mm

Mine are ET33

Standard lotus forged are ET35, Cup430 are ET32  ( standard et35 wheel with a 3mm shim screwed to its mounting face during manufacture)
