i was also told this but they are the wrong ones !! the hex of the nut is to far down to be used for the wellers i have the same ones as you on my metro now and have just canged them to ( part number mini spares ( CN5 ) they are a much better nut and look way better with the wellers !!!

they also sell new center caps if you did not know

still not sure on running centre caps, unless i can get some custom ones which dont stick out as far as standard ones (they look 'orrible).

Nice, It's amazing what a set of wheels and arches do do a car...

Looks Great! Love how swapping wheels can change a Mini! :thumbsup:

Think you should paint the grp2's Red to match the roof, or with diamond white, but with red arch trim :mrcool:

im not sure on the red, it maybe going...
it was done by the previous owner, and was literally squares masked off, theres over spray and the edges arent even straight.
and its fading slightly due to the fact theres no clear coat over the top.

ive got plans for the roof when ive got some spare cash (probably long term after xmas).

once the arches are on ill update this topic.

maybe the title needs changing slightly.
