Hi MT Users,
Will shortly be needing a fresh set of front tyres for my R56 Cooper S, and with Spring/Summer approaching, I want to explore my options.
Any recommendations? I'm not looking to spend huuggeee amounts of money, I've heard Uniroyal Rainsport 3's are quite good?
I have a track only R53 and am looking for my first set of tyres to replace the standard road versions I bought the car with.
I have no experience whatsoever in the area, so relying on your feedback.
I’m still new to this scene and looking at spending no more than £400 for the set.
These are brand new still stickered and never been mounted, 205.50.15 Nexen HD Plus
Rated 'A' for wet grip and only 69db
Priced at £150, located in Bridgend.
You can contact me on 07530116271 or by PM on here.
So I'm getting some AP's for my R56 Cooper and now that it will be low, I can get some non OEM rims.
Decided on 16's as I want it low..but not too low without an archgap. Problem is; 16 inch tyres are quite a bit more expensive than 15's.
So just want to know if anyone's running 15's or 16's...
I have a r53 cooper s on a 02 plate, so I have 17" wheels and 205/45/17 tyres. I have just bought some winter tyres of this size and I'm now looking for some new wheels to fit my current tyres, so I don't have to keep going to the garage twice a year to swap tyres over.
So the wheels I...

As project orange was completed, I have decided to start a new thread around my car showing where it started, what it looks like now and what my future plans are. This is less of a project and more of an ongoing thing.
Its a 2004 facelift MINI Cooper S. I was bitten by the modding bug after a...

R50 Camshaft testing - stock vs Piper vs NS1
Hi guys, as you can see from the title this is about a few tests i did on my R50. Thought it would be interesting to share with you.
At first, i have to explain a few things about the performance tests i chose, and the meaning of them.
I actually more or less finished my Blue racer project (of course 300% maintance will still be included and also few changes in interior maybe) and after hard working every mile in this 120000 km long period (the engine is still without problems) and huh heh maybe 5000+ km on the track...
Right, thought it was about time to get a project thread up after being on here for over 2 years now.
Purchased my "optioned up" Mini just over 2 years ago after having my beloved Clio 182 rear ended. That car was awesome as all I did was change the seats and away you went, no mods needed.
Finally got round to getting a project thread for my car, here's the starting spec:
Stock Sept 2003 Cooper S 37,800 miles.
- Black II with white roof, mirror caps, bonnet stripes and white S-Spokes.
- Runflats :thumbdown:
- Front Spots
- Body coloured front grille slats + Boot handle
just thought i would put up some pics of my cooper. The spec so far is
18'' team dynamics alloys
kw coil overs
piper x induction kit
clear rear lights
srtut brace (home made)
modified battery box lid (because of my strut brace)
Lohen side stripes
sparco stone guards...
Been doing some bit to my car lately so thought it'd be a good chance to start a project thread!
Started off purchasing my MCS in March off my brother. Standard MCS with Chilli & Vision Pack.
First mod on the agenda *Aero grills
