I was ready to order the new wheels yesterday, but just before I completed the order I got a message from a local mini guy saying that he had some wheels I might be interested in... They were essentially exactly the same wheel as I was going to buy - just they have the older type wheel caps. Of course I was interested so I went up to his place this afternoon
Here we have some Minispares Minilife wheels in 10x4.5, silver with the machined lip. One thing I really like about these is the stainless nuts and washers, which means the wheels aren't chewed up by the nuts overtime you tighten them. They're in awesome condition and I'll end up swapping my A008's onto these wheels as they only have about 1000km on them
Way back in January 2013 I borrowed my grandpa's mini and went along to my first ever mini show, the Minis in the Gong annual show. As it was the first big mini show for me, I got to have a good look at all the different modifications that everyone was doing to their cars. At the time I was especially interested in getting some new wheels, so I took photos of lots of different wheels and flares combinations and one of them was my favourite - this Cooper S with some Minispares Minilife wheels. In a funny twist of fate, these are the wheels I've just bought
Another car I've seen a lot with the same Minilife wheels was this lovely S, which is about the same colour as my car and was always really clean and a good inspiration for me!
