Welcome to MINI2 ...

OEM MINI wheels have 4x100 PCD, 56.1mm centerbore and offsets ranging from 45-52mm.

What specifications do the Borbet wheels have?

7.5 x 16 will be fine to fit onto a mini for the borbet a's.

the 8" wide borbet t's 14 inch may fit and once again the 7.5 x16's will fit ok.

If you are actually planning on fully euroing the car with coilovers etc be aware you may need spacers for the wider wheels as I have coilovers and 7.5 inch wide wheels and i required spacers.

I hope you stay on MINI2 as I want to see this car when it is done with the wheels and hopefully slammed!

EDIT: If you really are going to put 16x9 on the back be prepared for some mega stretch on those tyres to make it fit, i would recommend not going that wide on the back but spacing the wheels out.

Tell us your plans, im interested in the fact you are looking at these wheels as I want to euro my car next summer with smaller wheels and extreme lowerage, only for summer though lol Love my 18's too much

very nice!! The only euro'd mini I have seen was in america and it had BBS wheels, 15/16 and really wide right down on coilovers and it looked insane.

I already have the coilovers so the expense for me is another set of wheels. I like both borbet wheels you posted.

Good luck with the car anyway

Yeah it looks insane, although I would rather have some serious deep dish wheels with stretched tyres down on coilovers.

Im still keeping my 18's but I am thinking about another set of wheels.

Will be keeping an eye on this thread
