Does anyone know what wheels are these? It looks pretty good with the Elise.

Looks like the XXR wheels

I think shay2nak is right. Here's a thread you'll like. https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f91/...-combo-372370/

Be aware that the wheels are heavy. They're also inexpensive.

Light, inexpensive, strong. Pick two. You can't have all three.

Sorry for the thread-back-from-the-dead, but I just had a guy link me to this post (which I had missed) wanting the specs.

As far as I can tell they are:

Front: XXR 527 17 x 8.25 +25 with 205/40/17 or possibly 215/40/17
Rear: XXR 527 17 x 9.75 +25 with 235/40/17

I ran nearly this exact set-up before getting a larger rear tire. I chose the 215/40 front and 235/40 rear.

With 235/40

If you go with the 245/40 rear, even with -3.5 camber, you'll rub even with normal driving. This is probably why the guy with the white elise chose the 235 rear. No rubbing at all with that.

With 245/40

Closer.

That looks like radiumauto’s old Elise (https://www.flickr.com/photos/radium...in/photostream)

If so, it was a 17/17 setup with 235/40/17 in the rears .. unsure of fronts.. sitting on BC Racing coilovers
