I may be biased but this is prefect!

You don't like the red inserts that go with the wheels?

Tried both the red and the chrome trim, both were too much. The SS Stud/Screw is just enough. I did modify the trim cap with the MINI logo.

I kinda like the Gunmetal wheels with the BRG and white. Still need to black out the beltline. Opinions? These are cheap-O eBay wheels from MB Motoring. Weapon 16x7, 38 offset IIRC. $400.00 shipped to me for the set of 4.

Nice looking vehicle. What did you use on the handles and the side marker?

Thanks! The door handles are carbon fiber covers, and the side marker are MINI Blackline lights in black Justa scuttles.

Thanks! My rear spoiler has a checkered flag vinyl decal. Kinda hard to see because of the angle.



Not much, but a little better angle...

Countryman w 17x9 & 235/40

Just put the wheels on my wife's car, they are STR 17x9+20mm wrapped in 235/40r17. With no rubbing. I would like to say that I know that there is a lot of confusion about wheels and tires out there, but after seeing the 235/40's on the car, I am confident that with stock suspension (my wife does not want to lower nor raise her car. She drives it daily on terrible streets), one could easily fit 235/45's on with out any rubbing issues.
