I am looking for some wheels for my Mini.
But I am not sure what I want yet.
I would love to see the different types people have chosen.
Nothing sells a wheel like seeing it on the car.

I am looking for a sweet 17" wheel.
Be sure to tell us what kind of wheels they are.
Has anyone put 18" wheels on & used lowered springs?

I agree!
But we have the same color combo, so I can't get those wheels.
But honestly, I was looking at something close to them.
Are those the OZ Racing Superleggra in 17" size?

I love the white OZ Prodrive on dandp.

Does anyone know what thosee rims were on the silver MINI project vehicle in the gallery?

Hey, help us choose by posting both your wheel and tire spec's and if your car is lowered. I still can't choose between 205/45/17 and 215/45/17 and 215/40/17... 16" 17". Some cars look funny with certain combinations and other look great. It's hard to deciede unless you see the combination on a car. Thanks for your pics!

Actually, the Prodrives do come with centercaps. Wheels are still available at Tirerack for $149 each.



Or were you referring to MINI centercaps?

This is the only picture I have with my SSR Comps 16 X 7 (anthricite) with the H-Sports. Not a great shot of my wheels, but here's my soapy MINI being pampered by pretty girls at a fund raising car wash in Raleigh.

Not sure if you can see the pic clearly, not real familiar as to making it larger.

18 x 7.5 45 offset Konig Holes (18lbs), 215/35/18 Parada Spec 2 tires

Lowering hopefully this weekend with H-sport springs and Koni shocks, lower rear control arms, if time permits.

Hey Dandp, any idea if you can fit brembo GT brakes in there or would you have to use some spacers? I think those are the best looking set of wheels around especially if you have a darker color and a white roof! Really stand out yet not too over the top. Thanks -bk
