15" rims on R56 Cooper S?

Hi people, just joined up but been lurking a while. I have an 07 MCS and and beginning to get fed up with the crashy ride.

Do the 15" pepper pot style alloys fit over the standard brakes on the R56 MCS?

Thanks in anticipation of any relies.

No 15" OEM wheels will fit over the front brakes on the R56 MCS.

Does your car have runflat tires?

Yeah, it has runflats. I believe they ride better on non runflats, so may change them before buying different rims.

Go for 16" with non-runflat Continental tyres.
I had this option during the winter months on my S, best your going to get for a quick fix.
