Cool 2002-Z3M Wheels.....

I have a set of 17x7.5 (et+41) front & 17x9 (et+8) rear factory wheels which I reciently purchased. Tires I just installed are.. front = Potenza Re092's, 215/45R17 and rear = BfG KDW sss, 285/40R17..rears brand new (200 k's literally) front are 90%.

Was going to change colour to try to suite the car better, thought I'd try this first just incase....

I purchased these for my Lotus Turbo Esprit but not really feeling the look on my car. Looking to possibly swap/trade for other wheels 16-19"...must be staggered.

Thanks for the space

Did the tires work out for you..? I looked at those wheels as an option, I grafted them on my car in a pic...didn't work for me. Thanks for the offer though.

I think gunmetal would look great!

What is a Lotus like this worth. I've always loved them, not sure if I can afford insurance/maintenance on a british exotic.

Edit: There are some really inexpensive 80's and early 90's on ebay. Gorgeous!!!

For some reason, these cars do not get the respect they deserve..cash wise or on the street either. You can pick these up from 17,000 ^....pretty cheap considering this car fed it to the other exotics of the era on the road course, yet the Ferrari 308's etc. go for double..figures! 0-60 in mid 5's and standing quarter mile in the upper 14's !! Pretty damn quick for a 1983 with a limited gear box and only 210 bhp!

I am looking for gold, bronze or black for wheel colour.....going to spray my TSW Hockinheims gunmetal for my 96 Volvo 850 R, so a different colour for the Lotus is a must. If nothing turns up for trade I'll just spray these as well....

Question

Seems that alot of people are looking to buy these...without the tires.

They are in decient shape for wheels that are 9 years old and have the original finish. Couple of chips and very minor rub marks....

What would these wheels sell for ?

All I know is took me a few months to find the set, not a "regularly on the market" wheel..

Thanks
