I think the sportspacks make the car look lower due to the way they curve all the way down the body (if you see what I mean) which works pretty well with the tens.
But, at the end of the day, it is all personal preference so, whatever floats your boat!

I prefer group 5 euros. But I think only one person has 10x6 with group 5 euros?

The arches will need to be modified considerably to fit a Clubman, the section around the wing/front panel is significantly different.

The rear arch needs to be tubbed in that case to make the most of the room inside the flare.

PS Elephant will do any work you like, but it will include squashing.

this is my old mini, had sportspack copy arches, which were all flimsy rubber crap, but filled them with expanding foam, and they were brilliant then! very strong!

I love the looks of 10's, really want them on mine. But I want to keep mine looking fairly similar to how she was before and that was 13x7 superlights, so i was going to go 12x6 superlights on the rebuild as im not keen on 13's either. just wondering if i should go for 10's instead now. I will be redoing all the brakes etc, so that doesn't matter. grrr on decisions, oh well, its a long way off.

All your mini's look great by the way >_<

That's another good question. Had sportspacks originally, not keen on them (with 13's anyway). As i said before I don't want to alter the look of the mini too much, but i have some group 2 wide arches in the garage i was going to put on. so again, im in two minds
