I'm going to bore the (oversized) centers out of these eBay 15mm 5x120 spacers and press/weld in a new center that I can machine down to 71mm hub-centric for the Lotus hub. This will allow me to bolt it on with 12x1.5 x 45mm lug bolts, which should give me 20mm thread engagement in the disc flange.
I did not spend much time looking for an existing spacer that had 71mm dimensions, they may be out there. Hubcentric adapter rings might make a combo that works on the flange side
The spare pictured above would be hub-centric, if the spacer spigot was the right dimension, not sure why the spare is different than the road wheels.
If I have material and time available to make two, Tom has dibs on the extra including the 45mm lugs. I have to finish a TurboTax battle and fit my larger lathe chuck before I can start these.
