There was some question about if the LSS wheels were different because of clearance problems with the Track Pack setup and the included AP Brakes. (I did a search and could not find where the discussion was. Let me know and I will move this...)

The original and current LSS wheels fit over the AP Brakes supplied with the Exige S 240.

Original LSS wheels (front) 16 x 6.5 inches wide fit. 2008 Exige wheels (front) 16 x 6.0 inches fit.

I note an aftermarket supplier of the AP Brake kit requires a 3mm spacer to clear the caliper.

Lotus modified the AP Big Brake Kit after its original introduction and fitment on the '07 Cup cars. Your 240's brake kit has a thicker alum. hat (~2-3mm -- the equivalent of a spacer) than the original big brake kit so that the LSS wheels will fit. Your lug bolts are also ~ 3mm longer than the ones used on previous model year cars.
