My vote is the BBS RGR's with the SSR Comps as a close second.

RG-F for sure. A little heavier then the SSR Competition but forged.

Aesthetically, the BBS RGR's are hard to beat. I'm a big fan of the cross-spoke wheels. The SSR Comps are nice, clean looking wheels that are light and much cheaper than the BBS's. I vote for the SSR Comps.

Taken from Tire Rack:

SSR Comps (18x7.5): $459 each; 14 lbs.
SSR Comps (17x7): $389 each; 12.8 lbs.

BBS RGR (17x7): $553 each; 16.3 lbs.

Tire Rack only lists the RGR in 17".

Thanks, but I've been trying to get a hold of RV-F's ... not much luck here in Germany so far since they don't sell them here ... yet.

Nope, I like the RG version. It wasn't an option on your list but it is worth mention. I also like that they are a 16", everything that I have read and felt say that smaller wheels are the way to go on the Mini.

Cheers,
Paul

How big?


Porsche makes some neat ceramics that might be fun to fit onto a Mini.

Brembo and StopTech both make 328mm x 28mm kits for the MCS

BBS 's are both nice, with the RV-F 1st and RGR a close second. ALso, have you thought about the ALPINA ALPINA DYNAMIC 18 "
ones? They are 18' and standard with the works package.

How do you like them on the MCS? Have you tried any other the other popular replacements (Eagle F1 GS D3s? etc)?

I just got the F1s and man, the ride is so quiet in comparison to some cheap Yokohamas I had and the stock runflats. I've only got like 150mi on them though, so not much else to report.

I like them so far, but it's early days. I need to get a couple heat cycles into them to see how good they're gonna be. They are a lot quieter than the runflats they replaced. The ride is also much nicer even with the tight suspension
