Right now we only have them in black. We have painted them for clients (Japanese client above). I've seen them painted Gold and other colors. If you would like them painted, just email us. Typical cost is about $125/wheel.

Love the wheels, but I had an unexpected issue that I found out as I was trying to load my car on the trailer for a track weekend.

I have the 17x8 wheels on the rear my Exige. I have run factory and Rota Torque wheels at the track for years, ZERO clearance issues. I don't know what the offset of Ethos wheels are (website has "Correct offsets" listed in the specs), but with no other changes the tire sidewall was rubbing on the banjo bolt of my Ohlins DA coil overs. (using 225-45-17 R7 Hoosers).
Thank God I had some 4mm spacers and wheel studs from back when I was trying to move from R6 245s to R7 245s (the R7s were larger and rubbed hard on the inside and I had to move back to 225s). I had to use the spacers and now all is ok and track tested... even with passenger. So maybe it is just my car but I assumed this wheel/tire combo was common but I never saw mention of needing spacers. So buyer beware: try to test this wheel/tire combo out before trying to leave on a track weekend!! ;)

Hoosiers are notorious for being wider than what the sidewall states. We developed these wheels around the A048 and R888 street tires and they fit perfectly. The offsets are listed on the website as ET35. We have hundreds of clients running this wheel without issue with various tires. Spacers are not needed with street tires but when a tire is very wide, then a spacer will help.

Glad you got it sorted and I'm glad you like them - did you notice how much lighter they are?

Pretty disingenuine you do not make it for the S1 Elise
Why? We have maybe 20 S1 in the North American market. We have to buy 100 of each size when we order them. The OUS market has not bought wheels from us for the S2 cars...

Check with our friends in Japan, they make the best wheels for the S1.
