Anyone have any luck with Mini Cooper wheels on an NA?

This one caught my eye a few days ago.. It's the R81 7-hole (aka Imola) ET45 12.0lb and comes in a 15" x 5.5.. it comes in silver and white, which I think would look quite badass on an NA Miata..

Sounds like a cool idea, sub'd for photos.

Those might look good, but it's a shame they're so narrow.

Yeah, that's exactly the reason why I did a double take on them!





These are the Porsche ones, as a reminder..

IIRC there is someone from across the pond with mini wheels on an NB? I think?

No clue where it was posted, but it was on this forum.

I have two sets of those 7-hole Mini Cooper wheels for our '05 Mini Cooper. I've swapped them on my Miata a few times, for both autocross and for street use. They fit just fine and weigh 12 lbs each, but it does suck that they are only 5.5" wide though.

I think I've got one or two floating around on one of my hard drives from a few years back, I'll see of I can dig them up tonight.
