Has Lotus replaced the oem 175 front tyre

Recommended Posts

Just viewing Levens new arrivals on Pistonheads and noticed the the Olive Green & Evora Silver Elise’s

are running on Yokohama v105 with a 195 width.

Rims are 6”wide so they look a bit ballooned if that make sense.

I suppose this was always going to happen at some stage as the 175 is unique to the Elise and with its replacement coming 

i can see why the manufacturer may stop production for this and other reasons ( Regulation etc )

I will be interested going forward as to how this changes the steering feel and grip levels as I have grown use to the original setups.

I know Cup cars use 195 wide tyres mainly on a 7”wide rim & a few on the S3 6” Y forged optional rim , but my comments above relate to the normal models.

Thanks Dave,

Do you know if there has been any other changes suspension wise ,

surely this must change the feel without some other adjustments 

Was planning on purchasing a set of AD07 from you over the Holidays , are they still available to you 

and with a recent date stamp.
