I bought mine from the eBay store of RADUSA, since the same hangers where cheaper after shipping than either their own web site or their Amazon.com storefront. You will need the 12x1.5 thread pitch version for 1st gen MINI's without the newer 14mm lug bolts. BTW, I highly recommend buying two of these for easiest use with the MINI's 4 bolt lug pattern.

Edit: I've emailed RADUSA/Otis Inc to ask them to make a batch of the wheel hangers in the newer MINI thread pitch (14x1.25). We'll see what happens.
This is awesome!! I have a hard time lining up wheels properly even with hubrings. Thanks for the heads up buddy!
