Im not too worried on the ride, agree it'll be worse than 18/19" but Lotus seem to have a special ability to make cars ride well where others fail, even on bigger wheels. The Touring suspension should help further.
Weight of wheel is also a factor, the lighter wheels again should help, compared to most cars which have 20/21" wheels that are very heavy thats where a lot of ride quality is compromised.
The flip side is it isnt car companies fault that most roads are so awfully maintained
I prefer smaller wheels too.. as long as they clear the calipers. Smaller wheels are typically lighter and tires as cheaper too. I think the forged 20s look great, but I'd also be fine with 20/19 or 19/18s. Id have to see them on the car and the ride height would have to be properly adjusted too.
20" wheels look better. I think it was a good design decision ... as to handling plenty of very good sports cars use them

LOL, I'm the only one that voted for 19/18 staggered? I just would like to have a bit more compliance on the tire itself. I know I'll lose some "sharpness" but I feel that the tire/wheel combo would perform better overall.
