Okay folks, I need some help figuring out what wheels these are...

So, I was looking at YouTube today, and I discovered this Mini and the wonderful wheels it has on it.



They look similar to the S-lites, however from what I can see from this picture, there are only 7 spokes. They just seem to have a nice profile, and look like a modern interpretation of the Classic MINI Wheels.

I have tried searching but haven't had much luck. I really like the lipless look (sorry folks, lips are nice looking, however just not my style) Any help is appreciated, I'm not big on aftermarket wheels, but I LOVE these!

To be honest, they don't look quite right... (no offense to you of course) They have 8 spokes, and they don't look like they are very concave...

I apologize I am so picky! BTW, off topic, I like what you are doing with your bonnet, have you gotten it on your Mini yet, or is it still being worked on?

Well it would be nice if the guy that doing the work actually showed up for work and maybe stayed maybe more then 2-3 hours.

It's becoming a sore point between me and the shop...

Ouch.... Sorry to hear... I can't wait to see it on the Mini, I guess I will just keep my eye out on your thread! For your sake I hope that things pick up!

A-HA! Found them! They are RH-AQ's



As soon as I have the money scraped together, They will be mine...

can anybody tell me, do you think that the ones shown in the original picture are 17x18.5's rather than the stock size of 17x7 ? I rather like the stance on the first picture...
