I'm in. What are the weights on these 2 sizes? Similar to Team Dynamics pro race 1.2?

Width and Offsets are not SCCA superstock legal.
nope, but they are in asp. These are some good cheap wheels for pretty much everything but being class legal in SS. If you're trying to be competitive in scca superstock then they would obviously not work for you. I know with our local club here, NASA, they do not bump your class just for having different wheels. Likewise, theres also track days where it doesn't matter either. I like the ability of running bigger tires than I could with LSS size rims...especially with the slicks I'll be ordering :evil:

Will the Lotus Centercap fit? Does it have a centercap?

I'm in if they don't weigh a ton...

Oh, and are you a business? Or do we make the check out to an individual/you?

Are these wheel weights correct (F-16.3.lb, R-18.5lb)? They seem very heavy compared to Rota Slipstream which are the same dimensions (F-12.5lb, R-14lb).

The slipstream weights are not correct....at least I would bet on them being off. The slipstreams are not a terribly light wheel.

Sorry bout that - good catch. Wheel weights have been updated. The fronts are only 14.3 lbs

BWR has their slipstreams as follows:

16 x 6.5 = 13.5lbs
17 x 7.5 = 17 lbs

Also - I have had LOT's of PM's to order these. Your order is not guaranteed until you have made a paypal payment with your deposit.

I just spoke to the vendor and he told me that as long as the wheels that we have already ordered have not gone into production he will be able to add on extra sets. So if you are interested it looks like we can get more (at least for now).

The wheels will come with a centercap - the Lotus ones will not fit. However, I am going to have some Lotus stickers made up and you will be able to pop out the plastic cover on the center cap and replace them with a Lotus Logo. I will send these out FREE to each person that is ordering. I want a set for my self and it won't cost much more to have some extra sets made.

- No it will not, but what a lot of guys do it use the rota centercap and then get a decal made to go over the rota logo.

- see weights in first post

- no, but we are working through an importer of the manufacturer to get these made. pm midashands for payment details

- the slipstreams weight is off I believe. you also have to remember that these are wider than those wheels as well

- I think you're right, Ive had a set and I don't see how that can be right
