Tire & Wheel Care

Bolt pattern

Lotus Elise stud pattern - Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD) defines the diameter of the imaginary circle drawn by the centers of the wheel lugs and describes the number of the lug holes incorporated by the rim. How to change bolt pattern? Use Adapters

Stock Wheel Offset

The space between the hub mounting surface and the wheel center of Elise wheels. If you need a different offset use Wheel Spacers

Center Bore (Hub Bore)

The hole in the middle of a rim that exactly matches the hub diameter. It is located at the back of the wheel and as the car's hub goes into this hole it ensures the wheel gets centered correctly. Stock Elise wheels have a perfect centerbore fit with the hub. How to fit rims with larger centre bore? Use Hub Centric Rings

Custom Offset Range

Is calculated from the data of modified Lotus Elise that switched to custom wheel size preserving the proper driving capabilities of the vehicle.

Thread Size

Lug Nuts size. Measures the thread diameter, the thread pitch, and the thread length. In the metric system, the diameter of the thread, the first digit, is described in millimeters.

Rim Sizes Range

Gives an idea about the maximum and minimum allowable limits of the wheels diameter and width matching the specific vehicle. Try Hubcaps to change the look of your wheels

Custom Rim Sizes Range

Shows the lower and upper limits of the rims the vehicle can incorporate in contrast to the manufacturer's specs. Sometimes it happens that you are not happy with your stock wheels and would like to have something else. Choosing the right aftermarket wheels is not an easy thing to do, but we will try to help you get things straight. We have gathered the modified Lotus Elise cars, in which the owners tried to find the balance between wheel size, rims width, backspacing, wheels offset and suspension height. It has to appeal to the car owner too. Have a look around and pick your option out of projects with custom wheels.

Tire Sizes

Scale from the minimum to the maximum available options of the wheel dimensions that may fit Lotus Elise

Tire Pressure importance

A digital tire pressure gauge is a must-have tool for checking the tire pressure and keeping it within a permissible range. You can quickly measure the pressure once the visual examination of the wheel evoked a shade of doubt. Still don't have one? Review the best digital tire pressure gauges forming a perfect seal with the valve stem without leaking air, even at night times. Find a perfect combination by choosing the right car air compressor to regulate the pressure in deflated or over-inflated tires.
