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.
