I'm not sure what's going to convince you then. That's a photo that I took of the wheel on the car. I put the wheel there. It fits.

Do you have a photo of them on a JCW (front wheel pic would be best)?
Um, the posts above AND below yours show exactly what you're asking about. Are you not seeing the photos?

1) Sorry for the name screw up... didn't double check, and I apologize.

2) Yeah, my work computer blocks the pictures, and doesn't even show that something is missing. I loaded the site on my iphone and see them now, sorry for the confusion.

- Rota RB 17x7.5" +45 DOES NOT fit, but might with a 5mm spacer.

Dan did you get the Rota RBs to fit? I thought maybe you did this car? I am interested in this set up if it will fit my JCW without rubbing. I plan to lower mine too. Can you tell me if you used spacers, and how wide, and what you used to lower the JCW? I am assuming that is not stock height

thanks

Yes, we did it.

It's got 15mm front wheel spacers on it, and Cross coilovers lowered around 1.5" from stock height. I was surprised, but we didn't have any rubbing issues, even with the wide 235/40R17 tires.

We could have got away with thinner spacers, but the 5mm ones were just a smidge too thin, and there's no 10mm spacer for the R56...

TheFlo,

I think black OZ Superturismos are awesome looking wheels, and this is actually the first time I see pictures of them fitted to any R56 MINI period (I've seen whites but never blacks). Looks excellent!

As far as I know black-painted 18" Superturismos are not offered in US. I am looking to get a smallee wheel, the same black-painted ones as in ThoFlo's pictures but in 7X17 size. Any ideas if these would fit the JCW brakes? Please, anyone has any knowledge on this? I know Ultras and Aleggerits in 17" are fine. Thanks!

I'm really bad with wheel fitment issues, does anyone know if these will fit over our brakes? http://www.wheelfire.com/scontent/Wh...%20Convertible

Stupid Question List:

1) Isn't the stock rim 23.1lbs (my source is MINI2)?
2) Isn't the stock tire 22lbs (my source is tirerack)?

The only reason I ask is that early in this thread it was stated the combo was 42lbs. Which would mean that either one of those above weights is wrong, or the 42lbs number is wrong. If someone could tell me what numbers are right I'd appreciate it. If the stock rims are really 20lbs with a 22lbs tire, then I'm less inclined to trade rims. But if they are 23lbs with a 22lbs tire, I'll probably buy a set of lighter rims for autocross.

Maybe it was flat, w/o tire + rim filled to 38lbs of air pressure.



I feel obligated to say "I kid". When I made a similar joke on another forum about the person asking for the MB's battery weight, and asked if they wanted to know fully charged or dead, more than one person thought I was being serious. so...

I'll tell you right now...buy the lightweight wheels/tires combo. Anytime you can reduce rotating mass you'll pick up performance. I could tell right away the car felt considerably more agile, with Bridgestone RE-01 tires and 17" Konig Feathers rims.

I moved up from a 2006 MCS to a 2009 JCW. I foolishly assumed that my snows would fit the new car. Does everyone agree that snows are a must (in Boston)? What would be a relatively inexpensive wheel/tire option for the winter?

Thanks much,

JXD

I'm in MA and I think snows are a must. When I got my wheels not many knew what wheels would or wouldn't fit, so I bought a used set of 17" MINI wheels from someone on the forum for about $300. I put some Nokian WR G2 tires on it. They're not quite as good in heavy snow as things like Blizzaks or X-Ice, but they've got great wet/dry performance and last helluva lot longer.

My $.02!

The least expensive wheel we currently offer that will fit over the JCW brakes is the 17x7.5" Rota Slipstream.

Team Dynamics 1.2's

I know you guys carry the 17x7 Team Dynamic's 1.2.

Are you able to get the 17x7.5? Would you think that would fit on the JCW in both front and rear? If so, would a 235 tire fit on it?

Lots of questions... thanks for any help you can give.

OK, let me ask a really dumb question. Is there a tire that's good in snow that will fit the stock wheels?

(I love my MINI but funds are not unlimited and the engine just seized on my other toy -- Compac 27 sloop.)

It's not made in that size/bolt pattern. Closest would be 17x8 +38, and that's pretty rare -- last time I checked it was only available in anthracite. 235/40R17 would fit the wheel, but would probably rub the plastic fenders.

So was there ever a post fired up about wheels that fit and their weight? Maybe price ranges too?

Most of the wheels posted on here are wheels we sell. And you can find weights for almost every wheel we sell, and prices too, on our web site.

18x8" what ever custom offset you want ... but mine are +32 you also can order them in a smaller width and over all size. For example:

17x7.5
17x8
18.7.5

ect
