Post by kc jr 54 »

W/ the r53 JCW brakes. Clearance is tiiiight, but it clears w/ good placement of wheel weights.

Thanks for posting Ken, looks AWESOME! Any issues on fitment? Did you need to roll fender lips? Looks lowered, how lowered are you?

Yes, some fitment issues, as the et25 is pretty aggressive for the MINI.

"Specs" = Tires are 225/50-15 BFG Sports (Large). Suspension is ast4100 w/ 7" 550 lb-in (10k) Hyperco Springs, and they are wound down pretty far ATM. Rough estimate, i am lowered 1.5" ?

There is absolutely no inner wheel clearance issues like w/ a 15x8 et36 (rear specifically), BUT lots on the outside w/ et25 (rear). I am -3.0F & -1.5R on camber.

So in short, no clearance issues in the front, though i think there would be some w/ -1.0 or less camber. In the rear i had to trim a good amount of the plastic arch, and still have some rubbing but nothing major.
