Not trying to hijack thread, but I just purchased a 1995 S4 with the stock wheels. No offense, but I think they are ugly (though I love OZ as a company). Wish I could find a good trade to make with somebody someday as I've found even finding aftermarket wheels that'll fit an Esprit is quite an endeavor. Otherwise, this has been a pretty cool thread for info for a newbie such as myself

Don't limit yourself to the center bore/bolt patten for the Esprit. Just get some adapters made for a more common set of wheels and open up your possibilities dramatically, which will also reduce your overall cost because you won't be limited to some exotic/rare size that costs an arm and a leg.

Are the wheels on your car the one-piece style, or the OZ three-piece? If the former, I can put you in touch with an interested buyer (no personal interest).

Mine are the 1 piece. I like the style of the 3 piece much more. I'm mostly looking for trade though those Futuras would be beautiful, depending on price. Thanks Sanj for the advice (and the nice chrome Esprit wheel bolts I just purchased from you on eBay!)

Saturn wheels

I'll be selling my new saturn set soon since I was able to get a replacement nova. I also was able to repair the original nova, though it is not perfect.

just use stock lotus widths and offsets if you want to make life easy. You could change widths and offsets of you like though.

What sizes are those and offsets did you go with? They look great, not my personal preference, like the sizing!

I ended up going with 20x10 in the rear and 19x8 in the front. I had to tub out the front wheel well to make it all work but to me I love the white on white look with the chrome lip. I used the standard offsets and asked for the biggest lip possible in the rear.

Oz Nova wheels

Looking for a full set of OZ NOVAS any one holding a set I would be interested in buying. Does anyone know of any other wheels that can also be fitted to 2002 Esprit V8. All input appreciated.

Here's the only complete set I know about being recently offered - a bit rich for my blood:

Although it may not be rational, the Novas are desirable and a complete set is worth $4-5000. I know because I sold a set last year.
