Hi. I'm after some new arches for the mini.

I've got a white Mayfair with 12" skinny Mini Cooper alloys, currently have the standard plastic arches fitted.
They are much to squarish on the edges for my liking. So can anyone recommend some nice looking arches
That would be suitable please

Cheers.
Shaun

Group two narrows are the same width as standard arches and even fit directly into the same holes in the body as standard arches do. They give a much more classic/ retro look though. I guess it all depends on what sort of look you're actually trying to achieve though.

They are Wood and Picket arches, Ive got the same ones fitted, with the same wheels :D I see no reason why they wouldnt work with 12's, my wheels are 10x5 so if yours are skinny wheels they will probably be the same width, or maybe 4.5" wide.

Pretty sure wood and pickets are wider than standard arches so it may look a little over arched

They cover 6inch wide wheels nicely

And they screw into the arch lip from underneath I believe
