Out of curiosity, did you happen buy those Elbrus wheels used and already black?
Just happened across the pics and I had powdercoated Elbrus' on my 09 before I traded it in!
EDIT: Just saw them on that clubman as well, so I am guessing not!
Nope, we had them for the Clubman first, then the week before Tyler was headed back to RI for school, he had a belt separate on his tires, So he stole my wheels and tires. I bought another set of the sale wheels and tires since I liked them, though don't like the 22 pounds they weigh. His started with the clear peeling first then the Clubbies wheels. Tirerack said I could sent them back for replacement if they didn't have damage. Out of 8 wheels, I didn't have 4 without damage! So we had his powdercoated. Not sure what I wanna do with the ones on the Clubbie. Maybe powdercoat a bright silver or something.
