i'd like to buy a used front wheel and rear wheel for spares for my '06 elise.
it's not important that they are perfect but i need them to be safe and serviceable for street use.
i can use rims only or rims with tires.
thanks, sam

What type of wheel? Lotus has delivered Elise/Exige in the US with at least three, maybe four different wheels.

The standard (ne touring).
The European Exige (16 spoke)
LSS
I believe for 08 there is a narrow LSS type wheel.

the type of wheel isn't important, it doesn't need to match.
i have the standard common '06 elise basic wheels but i want "get home" wheels to use rather than flatbed the car home.
wifey could throw a wheel in the wagon and deliver it to me wherever i have a flat. i've had two flats so far but managed to get home on fix-a-flat.
i may not be so lucky later.
i figure that a real lotus wheel of some kind would be better than using a steel wheel from a honda or such.
otherwise, i'll look for a steel wheel with the appropriate bolt circle but maybe not the correct offset.
thanks, sam
