Yup, looks like you need to lower it 2-3 inches.

Hi all! I'm not sure if this has been asked and answered but I have an R56 Mini Cooper S and I'm planning to throw on some Rotiform BLQ's 17x8 et20 with stock suspension setup. How is it going to fit? Is it an easy install and drive type of thing since I'm not dropped?

Hi, I am finally in the market for new wheels. I am currently running stock 17x7et48 on 205/45. I have 20mm spacers up front and 25mm in the rear. I still need around an inch wider front and rear to fit my ZeeMax body kit. I was about to pull the trigger on team dynamics pro race 1.2 17x8et20 but figured I would post here and see what you guys think.

Thanks,
Hayden

It will fit, but at that offset you'll likely rub if you drop it to a height that will look reasonable. At stock height it's gonna look ridiculous.

Hey guys, I'm considering some new wheels I have the tires for them already so those are set. the wheels will be 16x7.5 et20. the tires that would go on them are 215/45 falken azenis.

i currently have a set of BBS RS on the car. they are 15x8 et-4(yes negative) with some 205/55 yoko s drives. it looks like this:

I'm just looking for some confirmation that the new wheels will fit a little better as i do want to lower the car a bit more when the new wheels go on. Thanks!
