The F25 uses M14x1.25 bolts, while the E83 uses M14x1.5 bolts. (Both use 17mm hex heads and straight taper seats)
Trying to use the lug bolts from a E83 could damage your hubs.

Also the TPM transmitters use different frequencies, so TPM transmitters on wheels from a E83 will NOT work on a F25.
Lotus what is the implication on, handling, tyre wear etc on using the following after-market wheel on the F25

FRONT SPEC: 17x8.0" ET40
REAR SPEC: 17x8.0" ET30

OR

FRONT SPEC: 18x8.5" ET40
REAR SPEC: 18x8.5" ET30
