Do not go 17inch rims, the handling will be effected. 16inch is the biggest you should go. I have custom made Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 16X7 49mm offset (I think). That is the closest thing to the original 60mm offset. Do not go 17inch though, the handling will be awful. Mine handles great!! Love my M100, hope to get it on the road soon. Getting it painted this summer, plus new top and carpet.

I believe any rim for a new Mini will fit the car,

Landed on a set of Team Dynamics 17/7 offset 45. Drives great. I'm sure the stock are better for the track but happy with the look. Lotus center caps on their way. Thanks for the input.

My M100 came with 17" wheels.
I ditched them and installed stock ones.

Handled, drove and rode a lot better stock.
