I need help tracking down a set of rims.

Hi everyone.

I was watching this amazing 2006 Mini reviewed on a dutch Youtube channel and noticed a set of amazing rims. PNG attached.

I just love those rims but cannot find a set that comes even close to those. I was hoping some of the fanatics here might have seen these before and help me track down the manufacturer. I would love a set my self.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated, I'm not Googling anything even remotely close.

Thanks!

Robert

Thanks!

Aha! That is very close indeed. I really appreciate the suggestion these are absolutely gorgeous.

I am still curious abou the exact model of the originals, but I suspect I will end up just buying these.

Thank you very much for such quick response. You guys are awesome.

I suspect the wheels in the picture you attached are wider than 7" as they have a deeper dish. I doubt they would be as light as the RPF1s.
