I'm interested in LSS rims, too!!! I'd prefer annodized ones to the new painted ones. Anyone want to sell, please give me a price. I could trade you my new SSRs as part of the deal, too. I just like the look of the LSS wheels despite the lightness of the SSRs.

Well I thought we may be able to accomodate but now it looks like no. I think my husband decided against it.

I'll be selling mine when my RS110s come in. We're probably going to measure my car next week at Champion, so I'll probably have a better idea of timing next week. Btw, mine are anodized.

I may be selling my LSS wheels when my elise comes in a couple months - the suspension is relatively cheap to buy the parts from your dealer and change yourself.

Graydon-you and I have exchanged PMs. Let me know if you want to sell.

008-where are you located? Did you want a 2nd set of wheels, too, or not? I have base suspension wheels and SSRs right now. In any case I'm interested in buying your wheels, as long as they annodized.

I'm located in Miami, FL. I'll know more about what I want to do after next week. My original plan was just to get 2 sets of the RS110s, but then I decided I really liked the LSS wheels and would just keep them, but the more I think about it, I'll be running Rcomps on the street so it doesn't really make sense for me to have two sets of wheels. But like I said I'll know more next week and get back to you.

Will do Jer. Of course I won't have mine until late Feb/early March, and from the looks of it they'll be painted, not annodized. :(

I'm not sure what my issue is with the painted wheels, but I just don't like the idea as much :(

...and they simply don't look as good. The shine and sharpness of the annodized ones looked a lot better. Anyway, as someone else mentioned, it makes the decision to paint them black quite a bit easier (if I decide to keep them).

I was told that the reason for changing was that the anodized/forged wheels will stain if you aren't religious about keeping them clean. Once they stain, they are stained forever.

For your info.

There will be a few very nice and lighter(Than SSRs) fully forged wheels coming up on the market in Feb. 05. I have both SSRs and LSS wheels right now on my cars and standard wheels and tires just sitting in my garage. If I was you I will wait 'til next spring and choose from several different manufacture.

Sorry, Ara. You're right-I jumped your claim. If it helps, I've made no progress in getting the LSS rims. However, the SSRs look so sweet I'm feeling better about it all the time.
