    Hello Alex. I'm looking at the pf01's on tirerack. Unfortunately they are not available in black for a 2016 JCW 2 door hardtop. However black is available as a special order from Enkei and according to someone I spoke with via tirerack online chat, the min order to get black is 40. If 10 people could be pursuaded to buy a set of these wheels in 8x18 et 45 would tirerack facilitate the deal? Thanks Ken

    Hi Alex, I just recently purchased a 2006 MCS that came with High Performance Sport Tires. I am going to need to get a set of winter tires for this little rocket and want to know what rims will fit on it if I find something on the market here that are a size 16 rim? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Sent you an email via NAM regarding a set of Bilsteins, did it go through?

    I'd say the 4X has a more precise cornering feel. The DWS has the advantage in wet and mileage. It comes down to the trade off that makes the most sense. Given wet handling and mileage, the DWS sounds like a better fit.

    Looking to replace tires on my 09 MCS. I have dedicated snow tires (General Altimax Artics are the best!!), so I am looking for a summer tire. I drive about 120 miles a day (70k Miles in 2.5 years!), so I am looking for something that is going to wear well and get me through the wet. I am kind of torn between the Continental DWS and Kuhmo 4x. Looking at the comparison on, they are pretty close in all catergories. As someone who has never driven on these, any light you could shed on the differences would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Pilot Super Sports are one of the best handling performance tires. How aggressive of a driver would you consider yourself? I am asking because I think we may be able to bring more ride quality if your willing to compromise some performance

    I am buying a new Countryman and I don't want run flats. I got the 18" wheels double fan black, I believe. I am thinking about the Michelin Super Sprts and an extra wheel to keep in my garage, slime kit in the car. What do you think? I want the most comfortable ride and good wet traction for FL. Also, do y'all sell the wheels for Mini or do I have to get the extra from them?

    I am not sure why your post would require moderator approval. I am not a full forum Moderator, just the tire and wheel section. I'd try asking Gray Raven if it hasn't be approved.
