Rims for my Mini????????

K I, just sold my 99 slk230 and jumped into my first new mini. And man, im really happy. My question is, I have a set of 18" jesse james rims that were on my slk and I am hoping to put them on my mini. Can anyone tell me if its possible , to first put 18's on the mini, and second what kind of bolt pattern issues , and i know there will be some, how can i fix the problem.

peace. lilruz

Thumbs up 18" rims

I got 18X8 Tenzo rims with 45mm offset. 18X8 with a 45mm is probably the max you want to put on a mini. Here on mini2.com, many have 18X7.5 with 45mm. Bolt pattern is 4x100 - 4x4.5/114.3
Hope you enjoy your mini.

Sell those wheels and buy some with the appropriate bolt pattern (4x100), width (8" max) and offset (35-52)
