Unless someone already has a Fed-Elise service manual or managed to pull the wheels off of a Fed-Elise and measured them then no...

Also the Toyota-engined Elises (111R and Fed-Elise) seem to run slightly different offsets than the Rover-engined S2, especially at the rear, so the known S2 numbers are probably meaningless at the moment too.

Bye, Arno.

wheel offset

Thanks Randy.

That means (and responding to another threath about aftermarket wheels) that at least for the rear, there is an aftermarket option that should be legal for stock class.

SSR makes a 17x7.5 wheel in 4x100 that comes with an offset of +35mm. It is 13.0 pounds which is not bad. I doubt that the stock wheels are lighter than that.

For the front, SSR makes a 16x7.0 with similar offset that won't be legal for autox but very nice for the track.
