Gareth - in good, unmarked Nick you could be looking at upwards of £1500 on EBay. Possibly more if the rubbers are new :wink:

I've seen some go recently for in xs of £2k :shock:

The S2 16" wheel is lighter than the Fed. SE 16". Sorry for the confusion.

I think the service bulletin for the introduction of the S2 and retro fitment of suspension "upgrades" to the SE indicates that the 16" fed wheels should be used as they are lighter than the S2 wheels.

Yes better fit the Fed wheels alot more stylish. I heard that Lotus flogged off the remaining S2 wheels as nobody wanted them. Believe they went for £400, yours are obviously second hand but i'm willing to show you my generous side and pay full RRP for them if it helps ? :D

You could always sell them back to me for the amount you paid. ;)
