Just got word that we're getting a small batch of our favorite two wheels. Our supplier in Japan is working out a deal for us and we hope to offer them at the current price - the Yen has appreciated 20% since I last ordered these wheels! I've been begging and pleading with them for months and looks like the whining may have worked....:D

Both are favorites within our community because of their superb forged quality and performance. These are bespoke wheels made specifically for the Lotus.

If you are interested in either wheel, please call us (951)296-6762 or email us: info'at'sector111.com to get on the list.

IMO the Stellas are the best looking wheels to ever grace the Lotus:bow:
Thx, we worked pretty hard on the design. Most people think they are OE-like. Clearly Ferrari was our influence. :)

I have to agree - the black Stella's look great and look like OE. I do wonder, at least here in Missouri where I live, if tires can be safely installed on that rim without it being scratched or scuffed. Seems like every car I have owned with aluminum rims that need replacement tires get marked up by the tire place - and they all use the same excuse that they cant gaurantee they wont get damaged. They put me in a 'take it or leave it' circumstance without an alternative.

I am sure in CA this isn't a problem but seems like tire places are more accustomed to off road tires and rims for raised pickups than these kind of rims. I am pretty worried what I will do when it comes time to replace tires on my Exige or if I ever do try to buy something nice like these black StallaCorse rims.

I agree that is a concern. Keep in mind that we have 45 & 50 aspect ratio tires which are consider pretty tame - many bread'n butter sedans now run tires like this.

I think you can contact TireRack to find their recommended installers. They usually have a good network of reputable installers. How far are you from the Lotus/Porsche/BMW dealer. Call around to the high performance shops in town - they might also have a good reference for you...

I wish the Stellas were lighter....it's a lot to spend if you have the LSS wheels...they seem to be the same weight according to your chart? So pretty though...damnit....but that's like 1/2 a supercharger or something....DAMN THIS POVERTY!!!!!

Is there any seat of the pants difference once installed over the LSS?

Seat of the pants difference? Yeah, the thickness of your wallet won't be such a nuisance any more.

They're beautiful wheels though, that's for sure.

The added width and offsets result in improved handling. Custom, one piece, forged wheels ain't cheap to make. :D

We've ordered the wheels. :nanner:

Most of the stellaCORSE are spoken for. If you want a set or either type, please contact us ASAP as I'm sure they will probably all sell out before they arrive.

Ugh... I should probably jump on this. But I don't even have an Elise yet. :shrug:

Two of them slipped away from me last week.

SO close...

We've shipped out all the wheels that came in this batch, yesterday. Thank you for your patience.

We have a few more coming by boat in late July that are still available.
