yeah i would say that they would look a bit big, I would go for special arches or Group 2 rally arches. Also depends on the width of the wheels too. :blink:

I always liked mine on tens with sportspack arches, could've done with being lowered just a touch though (pictures are also from a while ago as car is now in bits :blink: waiting for major rust repairs )

Never really liked the thought of 10s with sportspacks but seeing it in the photos I actually quite like it.......

Good work

This, although it needs to be dropped a good few inches!

6x10" will look great with sportpacks, is the 13" which looks too big, but thats just only personal taste... :)

13s make your mini look like a 4x4. ive got 10s with sports pack and its a bit lowered so its look sweet.

if its nice and low and the wheels are spaced out it looks good. i would say the sportspacks would suit it more than any other wide arch

I like the idea of 10's just its lowering the car which is the problem as I havn't seen one which looks the dogs danglies from every angle. Then you also have the mini lowered, I have to plan routes which avoid speed bumps as it is.

I'm really tempted to put tens and a lowering kit on the next mini and the sportspack arches look ace with it.
I only have 1 route into my estate without speedbumps but sod it, nice and slammed is what I'm thinking.

true... i mean i run 12's, that only because i can be bothered to spend all the money on the brake conversion so i can have 10's otherwise i probably would hae done this myself. i think if you space the wheels enough it should look fine. or maybe somewhere does sportspack style arches but ones that are slightly smaller so that the 10's suit them better i dunno. :(
