These were removed after about 3000 miles and the car converted to track use only. The tires are old so I would remove them to save on shipping.

PM if interested and I can provide photos...

I am interested. I painted mine black and would like a silver set.

What width are the fronts? Which of the silver finishes? The year and packages on the Elise they came from would help answer some of that.

There were different silver finishes on the LSS wheels?
Yes, there were 2 types of finish and two widths. To be honest, I have forgotten what the difference was so someone else, chime in.

There were three. Initially, on the first '05s they were clear anodized. After the first month or two of production there were too many quality issues with the LSS wheels due to problems with the anodizing process, so they temporarily offered people who ordered cars with the Sport Pack the option to take the cast Euro Exige wheels and a $500 discount, or wait until the forged wheels were available again. As a quick fix, they went with a dull silver paint. This lasted until just about the switch into the 2006 model year, when they moved to a "dark chrome" style paint similar to that used on the base wheels. They've used that ever since.

Great back-story to that. Thanks for clarifying.

Sorry about asking price again. The last few words in that line stating the price did not come through on my phone. Done know why, maybe too long a sentence.

Can we get pictures of the wheels? Or did I miss that too.

I made a tool to clean inside spokes, but tired of doing it.

Painted those crevices black and thought it looked good.
