I really like the stuff from Braid. These would be interesting options on the Emira and they already build Lotus-fitment wheels for various distributors and specialists, including Komo-Tec. Not cheap, but they are already a well-known wheel manufacturer for the Lotus market and the product is known to be high quality. The Braid Forged Seven+ and Forged I are both high on my list, but are expensive:
Track, Tarmac Rally, Autocross, & Street. [split] This forged monoblock wheel has hollowed out spokes, machined grooves and spherical milling in I-beam structural shape. This results in a wheel even lighter and stronger than the standard Forged Seven wheel it is based on. Depending on size the...

Another option that would be a custom build but a very interesting product are the forged monoblock wheels from Complete Custom Wheel (CCW) in the US. I've used their products a number of times for customer vehicles many years ago when I was in the motorsport industry. An exceptional product that is entirely build-to-order, like a fitted suit. They would be able to exactly match the Lotus offsets and fitment, and offer a huge range of specific finishes including "matte race gold" and several different bronze colors, all of which look really excellent on a serious sports car. I wish they were more affordable, but that's the regular story on any high end custom wheel. To achieve low cost with a high quality product they need to be made in very high volume, which is difficult with a brand like Lotus.
The CCW SP20A monoblock wheels feature a classic Y-spoke design with elongated bodies of each spoke, perfect for various high-performance builds
For those who are racing in earnest or expect to hit a lot of road debris (if you live in an area with bad pavement like mine!) the two-piece and three-piece wheels can pay for themselves over time by allowing the ordering and replacement of just the damaged rim section. I had several customers save a ton of money over years of club racing with the SCCA and NASA by swapping out the rim barrel after incidental contact or track damage. The chrome steel rim attachment bolts can be ordered in matching powdercoat finish to "hide" them on the wheel, particularly in darker colors.
