Original Wheels are the way to go. Your wheel does look pretty bad but I'm sure you'll be able to find a replacement or find someone to fix it if possible. You'll have a blast driving her once the restoration is over, I know I did when I first drove mine after it was finished.

Hey Kid,

I agree that the Lotus Brand wheels are one of the best looking alloy wheels there is, but I still think 13" tires are hard to get and won't get any easier. They will always be made but they will just be more of a pain to get (now, if someone would just make a 15" version!). Actually, I don't think it will be too long before even 15" tires will be harder to find, but I think that will be a few years away.

Enjoy them while you have them! They look great on the car!
I agree! Tires are very hard to find but they are out there. I love the original 13" wheels, the style is amazing. My dad and I were thinking to get some minilites for road use and save the originals for show.
