    Hey guys, maybe you can help me, I have a 2010 JCW and I really ant to get some forged wheels (or light wheels) for it, but I know the offset is different than an S, basically looking for some suggestions, hoping to get them either black or gun metal. thanks for any help :Thumbsup:

    The offset is the same for a JCW as it is for all other MINIs. The only thing that may be an issue is brake caliper clearance depending on the calipers on your car.

    Motegi racing has some light wheels and they are fairly cheap off tire rack. My MR 125's are 17x7.5 and are 16.4 lbs

    Motegi are good quality for the price. I have an old set of Motegi MR6 for my winter rims that have been very durable.
    Another option is the Enkei RPF1, 14.6 lbs for the 17". They are a popular light weight wheel at a decent price.
