are those SUPERleggeras or ULTRAleggeras? they look rather ULTRA, but that pic is deceptive...
205/40/17 makes me drool... not available in italian minis... it's against the law you're lucky!

Thanks for the kind words. The springs were kind of a crapshoot 'cuz there isn't much known about them. I like the alot. They handle very well and give a solid drop. I would have liked the front to be about 1/4" lower but for $100 I can't complain.

And yes those are Superleggeras. I'm not a fan of the Ultras, they look too delicate imo. More pics are on their way.

yeah, only 175/65-15 ; 195/55-16 ; 205/45-17 allowed; 205/40-18 permitted after a (hundreds euros) legal inspection and a go-ahead from bmw. one, cooper and S best setup is with 16'' if you want to stay legal. oh, and the same situation is for the R56 too. bad.

Wow, and I thought it was bad having to do yearly inspections including emissions! I would hate it if I was limited to stock tire size...

I love the look of the Superleggaras... I think they look better than Ultras too. Nice find.

Ya, I've been a fan of the Superlegs for quite a while. I finally saw some for sale and snatched em up.

Apart from looks, ~14.5lbs for a 17" wheel

Yeah, they fit the name very well. I'm pretty content with my 16lb Kosei's, but I would have picked some OZ's up too if I'd seen a nice set for sale.

So what are the next mods on your to-do list?

Nice choice on the Invidia! I'm very impressed with their exhaust for the MINI. They sound great and the blue flamed tips will look nice with your HB.
