Tire Wheel Vehicle Automotive tire Locking hubs



I know it's just a basic stock 18" wheel, but I love these. They have a great split spoke look and are not shiny black. I always thought the shiny black wheels looked cheap and like plastic. Yet so many dealer-created Minis have the black wheels.

I have 17x7.5 with 215/45 tyres, about 1kg less each wheel/tyre than OEM 16" wheel with runflats. Only 5,000 kms and I have already scratched 2 wheels. I would love to be able to put JCW brake calipers. I'm not willing to put 18" wheels. For me 17" is the best compromise and this provide better ride than OEMs.

I love the silver wheels. Like you said, black wheels look cheap and plastic.

Aww man, I hate when wheels get scratched up. Will they clear the JCW brakes? I want to get one of the OZ wheels on mine.

Mine are 16's Mini 495 Victory Spoke in gloss black, came with the car. Clean up nice however on the 16's even with the smallest wheel woolie you can't get behind the caliper. Looking to upgrade these soon, watch this space. View attachment 79277
I like how there is multiple spokes. One good thing about 16" is that the tires are less cost than the 17 or 18".

Very true about tyre cost, I was going to upgrade to 17's, took 6-8 months of viewing hundreds of wheels (many many times). Finally settled on a set that I thought, they're the ones then someone threw a curveball into the decision. Now under positive discussion on a colour enhancement. Downside is they are 18's only atm.
