One more thing to ask, and I'm putting it here because it's probably a FAQ item..

I've just had my minilites fitted with tyres by my local Humphries.
They've also put them on the car for me in replacement of steels.

As mentioned above, I've got spacers at the back.
However, they asked me (quote): "Didn't anybody tell you that you should have spigot rings? There is a bit of movement before the nuts are done up."
They seemed happy that they wheels are safe - but I'm worried now.

I checked on minispares for spigot rings and found nothing.
I would have thought I'd find them if I needed them??
I'll not be driving the mini for a couple of weeks once it's home tonight, so if I need 'em, I'll get em!

Help please?!

That's actually quite a relief, about a year ago i bought some "in-line stud" style minilites, painted them white, then tried them on the car (not a good way round to do it!) Decided they weren't wide enough so sold them on ebay. Had a somewhat angry message from someone saying "those are genuine RSP wheels and very rare, and you were stupid enough to paint them white!!!"
I told him where to shove it but was a bit worried that I'd missed out on a bit of cash.
Cheers for that!!!
