I've got Exige wheels on my magnetic blue Elise, and I think they look sharp.

If you're going strictly with looks, these are hard to beat. Had them on both Exiges and 2 Elises. Love 'em from a looks perspective.

Being fairly heavy, though, not the best performance option for the car.

Yes, they are heavier than other options. On the plus side, because people replace them with lighter wheels, they are relatively inexpensive. I would have preferred black LSS wheels, but these came locally at a really good price and I couldn't be happier.

I have been thinking of the same wheels/colour for my Ardent Red Elise. If you have time, I would very much like a better shot from the side to show the wheels.

I updated the pic. If you have time, I would very much like my first (ugly) pic removed from your quote! :smile2:

they can't be heavier than the stock Elise wheels. Any know the weight of these ?

PIAA FR7. Been installed since 2008. Couldn't be happier.

Purchased from "Force Fed" at the time.

I also have a set PIAA FRS on my MINI. Ditto 9on the quality.

I don't see either very often.

Actually, yes they are, because they are larger (fronts). The rears 'Y' wheels are slightly heavier than base, the fronts much more so.

From SELOC (weights in kg):

I think it depends on what you're after. Some wheels make the car look heavy, others make it look light or mean, or even classy. My favorites have to be the LS 240R wheels though, and the finish, and barrel finish are just pure Lotus jewelry. I think it also matters what tire, size and stance you choose.
