The 10x6 Revolution is a nice departure from the "standard" Minilites. Not saying Minilites are a bad look at all - it's just nice to see something different every now and again. Just make sure to put 'em on and check to see that you have wheel to body clearance through the full range. I've heard that (depending on the offset) anything over a 10x5 requires it.

And speaking of offsets...

I'm having a hard time finding any printed data on 10" wheel offsets. Will most 10x6 wheels work with Cooper S brakes? Do Revolutions come in a variety of offsets?

If you like Revolutions, and had TONS of extra cash, take a look at the 4-spoke Zodiaks. They are very hot!

Also, for you wheel experts, is there any advantage to running original 10" Minilites versus any of the current knock-offs like Minilights, Minilifes or MWS?

Cooper S brakes should fit over any 10" wheel you find out there. The Revolution wheels only come in one offset that I am aware of - I mean, I've seen a few sets on cars (in 10") and they all looked the same to me.

The original 10" minilites were magnesium, so I would be scared to run 'em on anything now! You might also want to check out Superlights (Superlites?) - an Aussie company. The spokes have more of a "crease" in them which is more to my liking...looks less like 8 round tubes.

The only time you're going to have fitment issues (I think) is when you go to vented discs with 4 pitson calipers - and in that case KAD provides a "swept area" template you can drop in your wheel to check. I know other companies make 'em (Minisport) but KAD is the only one I know that makes the template. Then again, most of the suppliers are going to be familiar with fitment issues for the various wheels.
