  • 949 Racing launches Lotus specific 6UL wheelset

    After many years as a "back burner" project for a very niche market, this proprietary wheelset is finally here. It surprised us to learn that our affordable Low Pressure Cast and Flow Formed 6UL is also the lightest matched wheelset available for the Lotus Elise and Exige.
    Really looking forward to seeing these on customer cars.

    15x8 +25, 12.6 lbs front
    17x9 +38, 15.8 lbs rear

    Ideal tire sizes are 205/50/15 front and 245/40/17 rear. This maintains rake, ABS and speedo functionality that are sensitive aspects of this platform.
    Besides being a neat looking and ultra light wheel, this opens the possibility for the Elise/Exige owner to run matched sets of wide range of tires from the new crop of "Super 200's" to a more budget friendly (and quieter) 240-300 treadwear sport tires.
    Previous wheel combinations in matched sets severely limited tire choices.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.
    But obviously I just dont get it. -fatbillybob
