    This is when I feel really ignorant! Oh! well...
    My tires are 215/40R/18
    I saw these wheels which are priced each at $130 with good reviews. I like the red stripe and the fact to be able to clean the red JCW brake assembly much easier! They weigh 23lbs each. Good?
    For the Life of me I cannot find the wheel size... Nowhere!
    I do know that the "offset" should be 35mm. The seller has not yet replied if it is available versus the 45mm advertised.
    So this is the two results I got which do not match!
    If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate to pass on the info...
    Thank You much.

    Nowhere? 23 lbs is HEAVY. As Dave said, like R112 JCW OE heavy. There's better options available but if weight isn't a concern.... Also better options than Motegi dual bolt pattern wheels on TireRack. https://www.wheel-size.com/size/mini/cooper/

    Thanks... They don't make it in the proper size... which is good!!! I will look further and will take the weight in consideration.

    Also, you can pinstripe any wheel.

    I've seen people making their own pinstripes as they grind along the curb. ;)

    NM engineering makes wheels that fit over the JCW brakes. They also dont need any hub rings. I have the 17" wheels. They also have them in 18"[​IMG]

    Not using centering rings is a real positive!

    Factory S-Heavies weigh about 25lbs each, and the only real thing going for them is that they are TOUGH.…..potholes don't faze them.

    That’s why I have a set of S-Heavies for my Winter beater wheels with snows on them.

    Here are a few extra pictures of that car after I detailed and coated it last year.
