JCW Brake Upgrade Kit

Hi all,

So I have 17in Track Spoke JCW wheels on my f56 S.

I purchased the brake upgrade kit, the dealer went to install it today and the wheels won't fit on the hub!!

Even though its on the configurator online it won't fit on the hub.

So I have 2 options, buy new cup wheels £2600 or fit spacers to my current JCW wheels? I can't spring for new wheels so will prob go for spacers at 15mm, anyone have any thoughts on that?

I am also talking to Mini Customer service because they told me and on their etc system it says my wheels will fit, so trying to see if o can do some sort of deal??

I seen pics on here that show the 17" wheels have curved out spokes on JCW to allow for calipers could they not source at set with someone changing to 18" wheels as spacers not for me anyway, the dealer shout know this if I'm honest but not surprised

Thanks mate, yes it may seem there are 2 types of track spoke wheels, one for the JCW Accessory Kit and one spoke wheels that come with a JCW car. Doesn't make sense really!

So there are the wheels on my Cooper S that you can see on this JCW, so can't understand why they won't fit over the brake retrofit kit??

There are indeed two separate Track spoke wheel part numbers; one for the Cooper and Cooper S, and one for the JCW with the factory Brembo's. The JCW-specific wheels have a significant convex bow to clear the big calipers.

Here are pictures I took of each wheel:

I think the dealer should at least cover the cost of your spacers and longer bolts
Seems fair in the circumstances

Is it just me that thinks this is pretty rubbish overall?... Why can't they design something that fits *frowns*

Sorry to hear you guys are having this issue. I'd love to upgrade brakes to but I don't have enough money... Definitely not if I need new wheels too

Will do mate, however I will go for 2 x the 501 JCW wheels for the front only, keep the rears. This way I only swap tires and the wheels look identical, they just have that little extra clearance for the brakes as suggested by Karl so we will be the only ones who will notice. Once I get them on I will take a PIC and pur it on this forum for you.Its about £500 for the 2 rims only...
