- I Need Advice Please -

Hello Everyone!

My friend has a 2003 Mini Cooper (not sport).

She is interested in getting some wheels for it and I said I could help find out what sizes to go with etc...

From looking around I see that the common sizes seem to be 15"-17" with the most common being 16".

The question I have is, what is the most aggressive wheel set-up she can go with without rubbing and without stretched tires?

Same question but with stretched tires being an option.

16x9 et 26?

Thank you for the help.

Offsets below 35mm are pretty radical for a MINI.

Fitments are dependent on suspension setup.

She'll be on stock suspension. We don't want it poking out too much. So 16x9 et 35?

I doubt you're going to be able to run that wide a wheel on stock suspension.
