Hello everyone,

I have an ESPRIT SE 2.2 Turbo 1992.

The front tire is 215/50 ZR15
The aft tire is 235/50 ZR16
But I do not have a spare wheel.
Does anyone know all the dimensions of this spare rim (width, height, ET - offset, ... ).
Thanks in advance,

The rim for the spare wheel is 5.5x14. I'll see if I can read the ET that should be pressed in somewhere.

The rear tyres should be 245/50R16, very hard to find now, especially with suitable speed rating...

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

There is a very slight offset inwards.  Measured from a straightedge to the bolting surface, was 1cm less on the front side than the rear side.  (So 0.5cm from dead centered.)  


Maximum diameter of rim (outer edge) is 39cm.
