Depends how big year balls are..
10"wheels are a compromise really. Brakes v's looks/handling..

Also depends where nd how you drive it..
Wouldn't catch me on little brakes on the road in a vaux powered mini... 8.4 reasonable compromise..
In my opinion.

A mate of mine has a Vaux engine'd mini running 8.4" 4 pot brakes and a servo. It stops well. I don't think I'd want anything smaller. 12" is a nice compromise.

8.4" caliper can be machined down I have done this before but found only weller wheels would fit due to fitment on wheels..


Anything is possible... just depends how hard you want to scratch your head about it...
