Non -LSS tires for LSS rims

1402 7
I know this has probably been discussed, but I'm not sure this specific question has been asked. I'm going to get the sport package since people have said it does not seem that stiff and I do plan on doing several autocross events. I will also use this as a daily driver so I would like the non-LSS tires to put on the LSS rims. I know they are different sizes but will there be a similar tire that we can put on the LSS rims? I mainly want a tire that will last longer with better wet condition performance.

If you are buying the wider rims, you should have no problem getting tyres to fit. At least in the UK there are a few types.

Most liked here in the UK is another Yoko tyre, but I've forgotten its full designation (Yoko Advan Neova something or other). They have decent wet grip as well as dry, and will last longer than AO48s.

Dan, the Advan Neova is the standard tire for the Fed Elise, while the A048 is our LSS tire.

The Neova should fit the wider LSS front wheels no problem. You can expect slightly better turn-in and response from the same tire on a wider rim.
You have 195 neovas as standard fit? Those are the ones I'd drop on the LSS rims.
