Evening all!


I'm after a view of any clubman estates rolling on 10" wheels, and what options suit.


As in my opinion, what suits a round nose, doesn't always suit a clubman.

And what suits a saloon, doesn't always look right on an estate.

I've been through the 10" wheel directory, but there aren't a great deal of clubman estates to see!

Didn't all the clubman estates run on 10'' wheels?

Here's my old clubman estate I had in the mid to late 80's.
4.5 x 10 cooper S reverse rims with 145 x 10 in the photos, later it had 165/70/10 008's, still without arches.

I think they did yes. I just haven't seen many with anything besides the original steel wheels or minilites

They look much better than standard.

Did the 165's fit under the body line?

I can't remember, I'd imagine they protruded slightly at the front, not sure I've got any pics of it with 165's on. Rear only ever had standard width drums,no built in spacer.
Not sure if it's got discs on it in the above photo, probably still on drums as it only has a small tailpipe so still has a 998 in there, not the 1380 it ended up with. It does have home made (Vizard- how to modify your mini style) negative camber lower arms on it though.
Picture below with standard wheels and hub caps.

Depends on the look you're going for, comics or revolutions usually suit clubby estates well.

I like the cosmics most, and there's a set on ebay at a reasonable price

I saw this a few weeks back in Facebook (although it’s a van with windows). They look like Minispares 4.5” wheels too

That's looking really good. The yellow suits it
