Can anyone help ! I have a Mini Cooper 2006 first reincarnation (R50) I would like to upograde the current 15" alloys to 17" alloys and have found a set of new (2009 - second generation) Mini Cooper alloys to buy but would they fit?

Both have 4 bolts but bolt sizing is slightly different.

Please help
Thanks:confused:

You need the offset and PCD measurements really of the wheels and your hub. As long as these match you should be ok.

With 17's you will need very low profile tyres and even with these the ride quality and performance will be impaired. Do you really want to go this big?
