Evora 400 wheel suggestion


Recommended Posts

I have been looking into replacing the standard cast alloys of the 400 with something lighter.  I would have liked to just the forged ones from Lotus, but they are stupidly expensive (maybe we get enough people together to do a group buy?!).  Now, I have been looking in the usual places like BC forged, but I can't find any technical specs for most after market wheels.  Why they don't specify the weight of the wheels is beyond me, as surely this is one of the most important aspects of getting a set of forged wheels.

 

Anyway, I thought I would ask on here to see if anyone has any suggestions to make regarding wheels, while still keeping the 19/20 inch setup.

 

Cheers

Thanks for the info.  PB Racing (who made the monza wheels) don't seem to make them anymore.  OZ make some lovely wheels indeed, and they at least post weight figures, but their sizing doesnt fit the evora again... more research is needed! thanks for the info again though...

So in reality there are no 19/20" aftermarket wheels that you can just put on the evora, as the sizes are just all wrong.  No wonder lotus can charge so much for their wheels!! anyone want to sell their forged wheels? On gloss black? :ph34r:

Would definitely be worth talking to BC Forged for example, to get a group buy price.

Mike - as I understand it the 19/20" "Design" wheels fitted to S1 are forged - regardless of finish. (This  theory is supported here

I had to buy a single rear recently and bought a "brand new old stock" item from The Lotus Centre for £660. It arrived well wrapped with a couple of very minor stuffs only.

Won't help more than one person, but they appear to still have 2 fronts and 2 rears available in black....

Rear : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Evora-10-Spoke-Rear-Alloy-Wheel-20-/263092793525

Front : (incorrectly listed as 20" instead of 19") http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Evora-10-Spoke-Front-Alloy-Wheel-Black-20-/253049740115

Resurrecting an old thread here...  Just been to check the deroure site, and it seems the price of the forged 400 wheels have dropped significantly in price.  They are now £792 for a front, and £852 for a rear.  Obviously still not cheap, but way cheaper than they used to be!

Has anybody fitted the 18"  Team Dynamic Pro Race 1.3's from the Series 1 to the 400 series? 18 x 8.5 52mm offset & 18 x 10 60mm offset

If you consider Braid, I can recommend the Fullrace FF. They saved 10 kg all around vs. the standard fitted 18"/19". 0,5" wider front and rear, but 18" diameter rear. I hade them custom ordered and the designer sent me the drawings for approval. Top class service and cheaper than all the options I found at the Lotus aftermarket  part dealers. i think I posted a picture in some other thread.

..Edit: ouppps, I just saw that they are only available in 18". Good value for the money anyhow ...
