TX: FS: Rota Torque Set with Tires $600 OBO

Black Rota Torque wheels with Lotus center caps. Tires are Yokohama S-drive with decent tread left but probably only good for daily driving - not track. Located in Houston, TX $600 OBO will not ship, can possibly deliver in Austin or Dallas area. Came with the car now taking up space in the garage

I really want these but I'm sure shipping to Florida would be a deal killer!

Yes, traditional shipping will add quite a bit ($160+). Sometimes you can find someone on uship.com already doing a TX to XYZ transfer (e.g. of a vehicle) who can pick up the wheels for a more reasonable fee. Accepting offers on the wheels

I assume these are lighter than the LSS wheels?

Did you track in these? Any interest in my set of LLS as part of a trade? 🙂

I'm very interested in the Lotus cap if you're welling to sell them separately.

Sorry, no shipping. It really doesn't make sense.
Also, not selling the caps separately.

@Shirp These are not particularly light weight. I have seen some numbers on the net, but don't necessarily believe them. I cannot measure them without the tires, but "as is" with tires and balancing weights I get front 37.05 lbs, rear 45.2-45.3 lbs. Will definitely give an Aggie a good deal though I have never tracked them, I have almost never driven on them. They came with the car, I put on Team Dynamics with R888R on the car and thought I would keep them to have for street driving or for storing the car for longer periods (so I don't flat spot the R888R from sitting), but ended up never using them so now they're just taking up shop space.

Looking at the tire weights from tirerack I would say ~15lbs front wheel and ~19lbs rear wheel.
