Actually, the front wheels on the Sportpak are 1" wider than the standard front wheels. 6.5" x 16" vs. 5.5" x 16"John4378 said:the dimensions on both sets of wheels are the same. I just want the other set without having to pay for two sets of wheels if it can be helped.
I agree with the parts are parts... It is fairly common to damage a wheel in a wreck (hitting curb, etc), so I would be very suprised if lotus wouldn't sell them as parts.Randy Chase said:
I have been told by Nick Adams that they will not sell bits of the LSS for fear of creating a car that does not handle well.
On the other hand, I have been told that wheels are parts and you can always order parts.
From the numbers I have seen for other cars, that is very true. Car prices (for most cars) are very competitive, so there's not a whole lot of profit there. Parts are a great money source for manufacturers.Less Moore said:When I spoke to my salesman, he said buying wheels as 'replacement parts' is typically a very expensive proposition
