    After 12 years, I've sold my Mini to someone in San Diego who did not need the snows. The Michelin's (195/55/16) have approximately 2,000 miles on them (that's two winters for me) and appear essentially as new. The wheels are OEM 16" as you can see from the picture. The wheels have no curb rash but there are a couple of blemishes that are no big deal. I'm an old man who is not technically adept but my son took many pictures of the car and put them on my computer for the ad to sell the car but only one was of the snow tires so I'm hoping I attached it properly. 614-507-5111 for questions. Offered at a very reasonable $500 for the set of four.

    I might see if I can have my friend pick these up from you when he goes home (to your area) over Thanksgiving break- if he's able and they are still available. Assuming they will fit on an 03 S. I'm a noob, only 3 days into ownership! :)

    They definitely will be perfect for an '03. Mine was an '05. Personally, I think snows are a necessity in certain parts of the country. You won't believe the difference. Plus, it saves tread on your summer tires! Thanks for inquiring. Let me know if you're interested. 614-507-5111.

    Thanks for the confirmation guys! Being from Chicago, I consider snows a necessity. Even though we only get gross freezing rain/ice in st louis most of the time, I'm sure they're still a life saver! Plus, I travel to snowy placed enough to justify them. I don't plan on getting anywhere on my starspecs in the winter, lol.

    I'll send you a message if my friend does end up passing through your area. Fingers crossed!

    Sounds like it would be a hefty detour for him :(

    Folks. Winter is about to arrive and this set of OEM rims and Michelin snows will transform your Mini! Hard to believe how effective snow tires are until you have them.

    Sounds like a GREAT deal...but my MINI sleeps over the winter. Unless, it's over 60 degrees so I can go topless...

    Great deal folks. If I had the money or rather if Babs would let me I'd buy these & put them on Skooby the clubster.

    Still available and still a great buy. Mini's are amazing with snow tires plus you save your when summer tires.

    Anyone know if these would fit on a 2014?

    I had planned to just put the mini in the garage for the winter, but my son sold his truck and is using my regular driver Honda CRV until he finds the car he wants. Might take awhile as he is looking for a very specific vehicle....VW Jetta Diesel TDI....and I’m now using the Mini as my regular car.

    Edited to fix my screw up.
    Yes no problem if it's an R56, R55, R57 & R58 MINI. if your car is an F56 they will not fit. The bolt pattern is 5 lug on the F56.

    I hope this helps. :fingerscrossed:
