I was looking at maybe a 175/60/13 and or a 185/60/13

I know a 185 wouldn't fit with a stock subframe in the back but I have a mini tec beam

just got to get the money together to buy the wheel studs and lug nuts and tires

those wheels I was looking at are made for 1/2inch wheel studs, a ton bigger then the 3/8's wheel studs the mini has right now

I don't think the wheel stud flanges on minis can support being drilled out that far

I also have a set of 13x5 minilite wheels, I plan to upgrade to a 7/16 stud, and then the lug nuts for that size is a friction of the price
I was looking here in the states, and they want about $8 USD a lug nut for a 3/8's lug nut for those minilite wheels, I can get the 7/16 lug nut in a 5 pack for about $15 plus shipping

so I'm going to order lug nuts and studs next pay day
