I searched and surprisingly didn't find an answer. Will the 19/20 "Lotus Design" wheels from an Evora S fit a newer 2017 Evora 400? Obviously they are the right size (19/20) to clear the bigger brake calipers, but I am wondering if anyone knows about the offset. Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much chrome orange!! The "Lotus Design" wheels were gold/bronze and came on the limited run GP edition Evora S, but if they are the same spec as Option 1 or Option 2 you posted above, it looks like they should fit fine. 8/9.5 with an offset of 52/69 or 55/69 is damn near the same as the 400 wheel spec.

Also, I found this useful wikipedia link that has info on all Evora wheels, it doesn't list offset but is a useful lookup nonetheless.

If they’re the GP wheels (bronze) then they’re the same wheels as the silver diamond cut and black ones that where on the S1 S’s.

So somewhat related, and I think I know the answer, but the 19/20 rims from a 2013 S should bolt right up on a 2011 NA that came with the 18/19 rims, correct? I read somewhere that the rims from the 400s wont swap out with the S1 rims, but I was pretty sure that all S1 rims were interchangeable.

Correct. I purchased the Design Diamond Cut wheels (19/20) off of a new 2012 Evora S and bolted right on my 2011 N.A.

Not sure about the later NAs, but the early ones had 18/19 wheels, which likely won't fit over the 400/GT rotors since they all came with 19/20s.

MY 13 N/A wheels DID NOT fit my 400.
Said individual apparently doesn't understand the difference between a 18/19 setup and a 19/20 setup. Disregard.

Different offset = sub-optimal suspension behavior
The offset is identical at the rear and has 3mm of extra poke the front. Hardly a huge difference. The 18/19 forged wheels pictured are also as light if not lighter than most of the 19/20s.
