I would think about going to16" instead.
Better ride and you could still use a 205 x 50 x 16 tire.
Look at Enkei PF01 or RPF01 for lightweight well made wheels.

Using Pure Gasoline

If I fill up with pure Gasoline 91 octane ( No Ethanol ) do I have to have anything adjusted or will the computer take care of it ???

Which looks better on an R53, 16" or 17" Rota RB wheels

I think the Rota RB 16" looks closer to the old style mini wheels.
But many R53 Minis have 17" wheels.
What do the NAM members think ? ? ?
Show me your Rota RB's in 16" and 17"
