Hello! I have just bought some new wheels for my Mini. Would like to get some opinions whether it looks ok or not?

Heres the pic. All opinions appreciated :)

Very stealthy - black wheels with black car is a tough one IMO. The silver rim is the saver - looks cool :)

Black looks great on the true black MINIs but mine's AB and they look like an afterthought.
I tend to agree, it would look better lowered.

I'll go against the consensus and say me no likey, just don't look quite right for me.

In my opinion it looks too black, looks like an insect, black wheels can look great but they need some contrast.

At least you don't have to worry about brake dust though :D

Yeah I would second that - the gap is a bit large at the moment... The wheels themselves are pretty cool :)

I have already had it lowered 45mm :aargh: looks like I'm gona have to dig into my pockets again ;)

Thanks for your opinions people

Black wheels look good on black cars, gives it much better presence on the road then silver ones IMO...
I didnt like the crown wheels my car came on as new so changed them to the team dynamics pro race sport.

Im not too sure about your silver outer lip on yours but thats individulality..:)
