A few forum members have Enkeis on R53s or MCS cars
Same question.... Ive seen the enkei RPF1 in 17x7 37 offset 13.8 pounds. Do these fit?

Will R85 S spoke wheels fit? I see this wasn't included on Mini's list. I didn't know if this was because they don't fit, or because they don't sell them anymore.

The Kosei K1s fit according to Tirerack. I will find out for sure when I start autocrossing next month.

Update: I put the Koseis on today. They have slightly more clearance on the caliper than the stock wheels. First autocross is next Sunday. I am looking forward to it.

The new Enkei Imola in 17" x 7.5" fit fine; lots more clearance than my stock Challenge Spoke wheels had.

I was able to get some Enkei EV5 17*7 ET 45 with 225/40r17 on my jcw but I did use a 5MM spacer up front. I had about 3-5 MM clear between the shock and the side wall No problems with caliper clearence

I could fit my Rota SVNs in 17x7.5 with 235/40-17 Direzzas on the stock factory JCW suspension. When I went to KW v3 coilovers, I had to add 15mm spacers and longer bolts in the front. Here is a photo with the Rotas and Direzzas.

Wahoo5 have you ever had any problems scrubbing the front fender well? From your pic it looks really close

It is close, but it has not rubbed in about 35-40 autocross runs since we finished the suspension.

Mach V Dan: What is the weight of this wheel, and will this wheel clear the Brembo Brakes of a JCW?

I don't know if anyone has discussed this but: What is the opinion of the Konig Feather Lites that Alta sells?

They come in at 16.2 lbs. and I was curious as to the strength and toughness of this wheel. Here in Iowa we have some roads that don't meet up with freeway smoothness of the California roads. So, any that have used this wheel, what about it?

I've had my konig feathers on over a year (two sets of tires). The roads I drive on in central and south Florida are crap and grooved. The feathers are a great buy for the price . I like the look and I think there fine for the street. I'll keep rockin my black feathers until I can get a set of forgelines .

For the price, the Feathers are almost a no-brained factory replacement wheel. Exact same size as stock (17x7), and so very light. If you're looking for a different size, then Feather is not for you.

I don't have pictures uploaded yet...but I have a set of Enkei RPF1 17" x 7" ET43 and they fit my '09 JCW with adequate caliper clearence. However, the base of the factory-style (I forget the brand name...got them from Tirerack) TPMS sensor valve stem wouldn't fit on the wheel at the base (on the outside)...the diameter of the stem base was wider than the indentation around the stem hole in the wheel...weird.

Soooo...I also have a '99 Miata 10AE and I had picked up a set of Enkei NTO3+M 17" x 7.5" ET40 on clearance at Tirerack for it so I test fit those on the MINI and they fit great too...so I swapped my tires from the RPF1's to the NTO3+M's along with the TPMS sensors. These look REALLY cool...I'm running 215/45R17 Dunlop Star Specs on them for autocross and I haven't had any rubbing issues after a couple events...I have stock suspension except for an H&R rear bar.

I was going to add these to the list too, but looks like someone already has.

You should throw a pic of the mounted NTO3+Ms up so we can see.

I know that this is about wheels, but I have a question for all and comment:
When I back up, I get the disc brake squeal. What has been the experience of you guys with Brembo Brakes and backing up? Any squeal from yours? Or, did it disappear after awhile? Thanks.
