From your other thread, those are Corvette wheels. I believe they are 16x8.5 with a +56 offset. You will need spacer adapters to fit them to the Mini. I think the bolt pattern is 5x4.5”. They are a popular with the VW crowd.

Thank you much for the info! I like the look and I hear what you're saying about the Vdub crowd as I've owned an Audi Coupe and a Wolfsburg edition Jetta MK2 ...I've seen several of those around with that wheel but not any minis until now that I own and drive one!

So you've had no issues with your spacers at all? I've been reading so much negative stuff about them! Got me kinda gun shy even though I'd love to run the C4's o my mini....oh well...... We'll see I guess!

Sorry, I wasn't asking you... But, from what I have researched, you should be able to get away with up to a 20mm spacer at stock ride height with an OEM alignment on OEM rims. With aftermarket rims, or C4 sawblades, you'll have to do some deeper research or experimenting.

Those are Salad Shooters....not Sawblades. either way...

If you are putting them on you NEED coilovers. You wont get it stanced right without them. Look into something like the BC coilovers. Having the strut body that screws down into the mount is a slick way to get a good level while not killing ride too much.

I just put on some Konig Hypergram's. They are 17x8 et47 and about 16lbs each I think. This wheel comes from Konig's new flow formed line. I also wrapped them in Michelin Pilot Sport a/s 3 plus 215/45. The new set up is awesome.

Those look great and not many people have them. I'm seriously considering those for my R53 JCW. Thanks for sharing

Went from the Pogea xcut500 18x8 to Team Dynamics 17x8 et 38 in order to fit the big brake kit. 215/40r17 has plenty of room. I think I might go 235/40r17 for the next set of tires but that'll probably rub. I'm loving the new look.

Anyone know if it would be possible to run a 18x8.5 et42 with 225/40 on a F56 running the JCW pro coilover suspension? Not looking to make any major camber adjustments
