    HA, Lucky you. unlike the most of us that need to wait at least 3-4 months.

    No they were 8 spokes, exact same ones as the Gold ones in pix above.

    There is only one 4 x 100 PCD that is 10 spokes. They are 17x7.5 with +33 offset if i remember correct. Don't hold me to the offset numbers. But I'm 100% sure they are 17x7.5

    Ya, I think I should shave a few tenth per track mile or so. The Rotas were 12.5 lbs each. These are 9lbs. So I lost at least 6 lbs of unsprung mass on the front axle.

    HAHA, I just found the "multi-quote" function. Before this I had to cut and paste if I wanted to quote more than one post. Duh!!

    Yes, I grabbed the set. I called A-spec and they mentioned that they had a set for the Lotus that had been on order but the owner changed his mind. Didn't know they were yours. I wanted those rims but only if they were in flat black and voila!! I owe you.

    I like the wheels, but I can't believe you let those numbers cover the trackHQ logo!

    No choice. I had no where else to stick the numbers. And they are mandatory for the LCS.

    Ha Ed , I knew someone will eventually bring this up. You got it all wrong dude. I was only trying to represent Toyo's product when I picked the numbers. Superstition crap like this is the last thing i worry about.

    lol, yea. Maybe I should believe in it after all. 333 is good. but is taken. 128 is also good. 168 is another, but also taken. i don't know. thats all i can think of for now.
