Advanti HY Hybris 18x8 et45 with 225/40/18 perfect fit.
I am new to the Mini scene but not to the BMW one. I have a 2015 MCS, it's JB4 w/FF map 2 tuned with Miltek down pipe and 40% E85 fuel. It's got and AFE intake and I will be fitting the Remiss exhaust asap. I just installed these wheels today. No drop yet but I'm trying to decide coils or springs . I have springs alone on my X5 and it feels great. But I had coils on M3 which was great too. Please chime in and let me know what works best with my setup. Here's some photos of the wheels. 20180719_120410_1532134858018.jpg 20180719_120410_1532134858018.jpg 20180719_120410_1532134858018.jpg

Updated look. First went black out style, then added ST coilovers. I think will raise it up by a half inch.

Very nice! I've just ordered some ST coilovers, did you find any difference in stiffness?

I've got 17x7.5 with 205/45/17 et45 wheels to go on too.

What are the spring rates on the coilovers and have you experienced any wheel rubbing? I have 225/40 18 on my mini with a reduced offset, so the wheels stick past the wheel wells and now I want to lower the car. Concerned about rubbing.

Looks great! Are you running spacers also, or are they simply this wide out of the box? Especially thinking of your rear wheels.
