Anyone know how much the LSS wheels cost (I assume the only way to get them is thru Lotus as a replacement, extra set, etc.)?

I just tried calling around to a couple dealers and got a few outrageously high prices, several "I don't see them listed in this Lotus brochure I have here", and several "I don't know, I'll have to call you back".

Has anyone priced them out?

I don't recall exactly, but Lotus told me around $460 a wheel. Slightly more for the rear, slightly less for the front.

My dealer told me they weren't available, and to look at SSRs.

Just an FYI, but if you like to have your wheels looking clean the LSS wheels are not for you. They are a real pain to clean because of all the angles and crevices.

Maybe try using Rejex on the wheels? For a few months, dirt and brake dust will practically fall off when you wash. And you don't use anything harsh on them since that would remove the Rejex.

Just as a few data points, HRM quoted $617 ea. for the fronts, $668 ea. for the rears, bring the cost of 4 wheels $2570!! Seems odd that the cost of just the wheels is more than the sport pack itself.

Fox Valley said $580 ea. for the front, $622 ea. for the rear, but they were painted rims and not annodized like from the factory. :confused:

Several other dealers didn't think they were available, others were going to call me back and haven't called yet.

I feel bad for anyone who bends an LSS rim.

I actually think they are real easy to clean, my Subi STI and e30 M3 were a real pain to clean....
