Hey cool. Last time I called customer service you guys said there wasn't yet a solution for the elise. good to know things are getting updated.

Maybe you can add to one of the previous threads on winter tires. In particular, I'd like to know what will work with the LSS rims, as I don't really want to have to deal with _three_ sets of rims for the car (street, autox, and snow).

If you're going 15"/16" then I'd go for the original S2 winter wheel specification (which I use on my car): 185/55R15 front and 205/55R16 rear.

Lotus never made the appropriate S2 winter wheels (whey were supposed to, but never did), so later they fudged the spec to 195 front 225 rear and fit them on the normal wheels. But for winter/snow tires they're IMHO too wide for such a light car.

Narrower helps a lot on snow and slush to get traction.

Has worked fine for me in the last few winters.

Bye, Arno.
