OE Fitment

As standard the Exige S comes equipped with Pirelli P Zero Corsa summer tyres.

Track focused Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tyres are also available from Lotus, combining 2 distinct tread patterns. The inner area, together with the longitudinal grooves, responds to the critical issues of wet surfaces and aquaplaning, while the outer area with pattern derived from rally asphalt applications, ensures the required rigidity to cope with the stresses during cornering, typical of racetrack driving.


Avon Motorsport ZZR tyres are available to fit the Exige S and are used for the Exige V6 Cup and Exige V6 Cup R for the Lotus Cup UK and Europe series. The fronts are a fraction wider at 215/40 R18, resulting in a slight decrease in rolling radius for the front tyre due to a 1.95% decrease in diameter.
