Introduction from a lurker

Long time lurker and finally decided to introduce myself to the forum. I drive an R50 and I liked it so much that when it was time to shop for my wife we got her into an R60. Looking forward to some simple mods to her car. First up, wheels (18 or 19s) w/ non run flats for summer and getting some winter tires for her stock 17s. We live in MinneSnowta. So if you have a line on some good looking mini wheels let me know! I think charcoal turbofans would look great on her car. Here's a couple pics of our Mini's

Welcome! We bought a 2015 R60 CMS All4 last summer for my wife. I didn't care for the stock 17" wheels with Conti RF's, so I bought a set of the 18" silver turbo fans and mounted non-RF 225/45/18 Michelin Pilot A/S 3+'s on them and what a great improvement! Looks better with larger wheels and tires and rides and handles better!

Congrats. I was going to reply to you that I am about to list for sale a set of 17" wheels with TPMS sensors but then I saw your photo -- you already have the same wheels. So instead, I'll recommend Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 snow tires. That's what I ran on my R60 this winter in Wisconsin. We live at the top of a steep, windy road on a bluff and the tires were amazing. I just bought a set of silver turbofans and put Michelin Pilot Sport 4S on them. Will wait until late season snow is out of the question before putting them on the car.
