I wanted to go ahead and replace the stock wheels on my 07 exige with the cup car wheels. Does anybody know where I can purchase them from? and for how much? I can still keep the same tires right?
What size are you running of the R888 on the cup wheels? 195/225?I bought a set with the help of wallybyguy, pm him. They are expensive at around $3200. They are however the correct size, with seven inch wide fronts and eight rears with the exact offset needed. They are very light as well.
I mounted Toyo R888 tires and am amazed at how well the car handles. So far I have not noticed any rubbing beyond what the stock tires and wheels did.
Meanwhile I got my Cup wheels. I made the experince that the AO48 fit much better the Cup rims (7.0" front, 8.0" rear) than the stock (european) Exige rims (6.5" front, 7.5" rear). Especially at the rear wheels the tires did not make use of the full width but did not have contact to the street at the outer edges (approx 2cm). Even with different tire pressures I've seen this.I waited about a week. They shipped them from Lotus USA... Im guessing if your 5 months they are probably out of stock.
