    I thought it was the same as the countryman/Paceman? Maybe I am wrong.

    It's confirmed not to be 5x120. It's smaller. The intention is clearly to make sure we can't use our old wheels. @#$%&!.

    because we can?
    because this car is so bloated and fat it needs more lug bolts?
    Because this engine will make up to 350 hp we need more lug bolts?
    Because we do not want MINI owners reusing thier wheels from thier old MINI?

    gotta be in there somewhere

    Most people remove the boat anchors that BMW/MINI supplies with their cars anywho. Lots of nice wheels in the aftermarket. I wonder if the BMW front driver will use the same bolt pattern as the BMW/MINI.

    Hoping to see fire sales on MINI 4x100 rims. :D

    You are most welcome-sorry if my last post sounded sarcastic, but it is one more thing that annoyed me when I discovered NONE of the wheels we like on our current cars were going to work.

    FWIW, the hubs on RealOEM are 33416867926 (front) and 33416867927 (rear). RealOEM also shows that the BMW i3 uses the same hubs. So you can share your favorite wheels from your i3.
