I am new to the mini scene, but I do plan to purchase a Cooper S in the near future, and I was wondering if there is a larger fender flare kit in the works or available? An exaggerated version of the stock flares, to accomodate some wider wheels is what I'm after! Something like a 3" or 4" flare!

TIA!

There is a blue Lupo that I am thinking of that has exactly what I want, it tucks 16x9 Brocks all around, and looks really smooth! But I can't find a picture of it for the life of me :(

Go too big, and the steering becomes too heavy, and it tends to put additional strain on the suspension components, plus it'll start to resemble a tonka toy!
I personally think the 17" wheel combo that's available is large enough for the MINI.
Still, it'll be interesting to see it with them.

It would be a 225 contact patch on a 16" wheel, so that wouldnt be too bad. It would definitely limit the wheel bearing life and such, I can't argue that
