E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Mini's are 4 x 100 same as the 4-lug E30, but offset varies. Also, the center hole may not match (too big/small)

our centerbore is 57.1, think minis are 66, so you'll want centering rings.

as far as width, you'll want fronts as 7" et25 or 8" et 13, rears can go as wide as 9" et 0

Mini cooper rims have a hub bore of 56.1mm and will have to be modified to fit the E30's 57.1mm hub. Also the mini cooper rims have high offsets (40mm), so you will also need four15-20mm hub centric spacers with longer lug bolts.
