Trying to find the best wheel for a Black/White Mini Cooper and I am a HUGE fan of the calssic mimi-lite wheel design.

I have a set of Panasports on my Miata, but I am trying to find ones that looks similar.

What do you guys think?

OPMD Super-lite Wheel (trying to get info now on these)


Panasport (Nice)


COMPOMotive Wheel - ML Series (a tad bit heavy - 20lbs for 15")


Anyone have any other suggestions on wheels that look like these?

The Superlite Classic Range wheels only go up to 16", and in 15" and 16" size have 10 spokes:



Superlite does offer their Ultralite 3-piece wheels with 8 spokes in 15" to 17" sizes:



These wheels cost £175-195 + vat in the UK.


As for Panasports, this is last I heard from my US contact back in January:
I finally have some good news to report back to you. I finally got the official word that Panasport has measured and is developing a wheel specifically for the new Mini!

I don't have specs or sizes yet, but i just wanted to let you know that they will be happening.
I will follow up and include information in the FAQ on aftermarket wheels.

These can be seen below on my Classic. Nice wheels :)



I would like some Minilites on the MINI, I've been thinking about it since my local Dealer's launch party last June, but I'm not sure.

I contacted Superlite and they emailed back that the 16"classic is for a truck and will not fit the MINI. However the ultralite 3 piece wheel will fit in a 16 or 17 inch size. Painted yellow with that chrome surround......aaahhhhh!:D :D :D :D
