That’s very helpful, thanks.

Mine is black but has some heavy fondmetal (sp) wheels and I wanted to ‘lighten up’ the looks. I think that I’ll probably go with the TDs but probably in a silver.

Thanks again and much appreciated.

Still looking good Steven :wink:

The previous owner ScottJ wanted to create a JPS M100 (also like PaulP from Rutland) I think they are Compomotive's ? Correct me if I'm wrong

PS thought you'd have sprayed them white by now in your team colours Par :twisted:

Thanks Mark, as you know black looks great when cleaned and polished, pity it only lasts about 3 minutes :roll:

No plans to turn the Elan into a tribute car for an under performing football team :D

The wheels are Team Dynamics Pro race 1.2
I spoke to Rimstock and thats what they recommended for a Lotus. The Mars gold paint job was a special order which they were happy to do for £50 but ended up never charging me the surplus.
Same design is control wheel in BTCC and seems to suit many cars. Seen plenty on MINI Coopers.

Just as a matter of interest, where did you source them?

I bought the set I had on my Elise direct from them but don’t think that they do that now.

My car already has 17'' wheels with good tyres. I was thinking of waiting until the tyres were worn and getting some 16'' wheels.

However, the 17'' on your car look good so I might see if I can get some in silver.

They are 7 x 16" and just checked the receipt from when Scott bought them and they are ET45 offset.

Hope that helps :)
