    Been awhile since I've posted here.

    So I asked these on the "other" forum didn't have any responses. I replaced our 2012 R56 Justa with a 2016 F55 Justa. Just ordered a set TSW MAX Matte Black in 17x8 et 45 with 205/45R17s for the stock F55 Justa with the nasty small 15x5.5 et46 wheels and 175/65r15s. According to the rep at TSW this setup will fit. Anyone running this size? If so any issues?

    Try this site for measurements and a simple visual difference. Since your change is more extreme it might be harder to know if everything will clear. Maybe entering a factory 17" option for your car as the before will give you some better info.

    The F56's come with 205/45's so I would think you'll have plenty of space for those to fit.

    Offset isn't a drastic change, and 17x8 while being slightly wider, will be covered with that size tire.
    The spedo may not read correctly, but does anyone have a MINI that does? LOL

    I had to ask. I felt like I couldnt get an answer anywhere else.

    Not one of the 4 MINIs I've owned the speedo has been off :)

    LUCKY - Mine is at least 3mph off, so are a few of my fellow MINIacs. It's just something I've gotten used to.
