Wheels fit all models?

Do all Minis have the same wheel fittings; will wheels from the first series fit the second series cars?

I'm looking for winter wheels and want to know how wide I can spread my search.

Yes, 1st gen wheels fit 2nd gen cars fine - I've also run 1st gen winters on a 2nd gen car.. The bolt sizes are different but the hole in the wheels is the same!

Of course the wheel size has to fit the car concerned - neither gen 15" wheels will fit over 2nd gen Cooper S discs.

Remember to look for fairly simple wheels like the 5-Stars below, so that they keep themselves fairly clean and clear of snow - winter is not the time to have be out cleaning.

Thanks. I'm looking at 17s, so they should fit.
