sorry to tell ya mike, but lotus made those wheels in different widths, so the question is relevant. (and I am NOT talking about comparing the fronts to the rears)

Not good salesmanship either…I don’t think it’s sellers market out there and I asked you a question. Good luck in selling them…

Look on the inward-facing lip of the rim. It's etched into the metal there.

It's a set of LSS wheels. They only difference in these ever was whether the fronts are 6 or 6.5 inches, which in practical terms is not hugely relevant. There was an early batch that was anodized, the rest were painted.

Thanks Andy, I didnt realize that there was any difference but for those interested i will check the fronts to determine if they are 6 or 6.5. They came off of a 2006 so i am going to guess that they are 6.5 but I will confirm and post.

Nope...only 6.5Jx16 (5.5-Kg about 12-lbs) ET31 in anodized or painted. Rears are 7.5Jx17 (7Kg about 15.5-lbs) ET38 also anodized or painted. BTW, OP is a lazy SOB.

Those number listed there are not Lotus part numbers...
He's right, for the 2008 MY Lotus changed the front LLS wheel to be 6" wide instead of 6.5". This makes a difference too, especially if someone is wanting to use a wider tire to help with the inherent understeer the car has.

Mike, I'm a little confused because you have two listings on eBay. Do you have two sets or just one for sale? I'm local, can I come and check them out for condition anytime?
