QUALITY YOU CAN RIDE ON.
Adding MINI Original Wheels, Tyres and Accessories to your MINI is like applying the final brushstrokes to a painting. Take MINI Floating Hub Caps, for example – they round everything off perfectly to turn a cool original into a true MINI masterpiece.
MINI FLOATING HUB CAP.
These innovative, self-leveling floating hub caps do not turn with the wheel. So the MINI logo remains horizontal while you're driving and adds a cool finishing touch to the special look of the MINI light alloy wheels. At the same time, the wheel hub is reliably protected against dirt and damage. Standard wheel covers can be easily removed and quickly replaced with the floating caps.
MINI JCW FLOATING HUB CAP.
The JCW floating hub cap consists of the JCW logo that doesn't turn with the wheel but instead remains horizontal while you are driving. The hub cap can be mounted to all MINI vehicles.
MINI VALVE CAPS.
It's the little things that make a big difference. These high-quality MINI aluminium valve caps protect Tyre Pressure Monitoring System aluminium valves from dirt and moisture. At the same time they provide that final touch by adding a highly stylish visual accent to your wheels. Set of four valve caps with MINI logo or MINI designation.
MINI Original Complete Wheels are all fitted exclusively with star-marked tyres to offer a guarantee of quality and safety assurance. They have been developed in close collaboration with leading manufacturers like Goodyear, Dunlop, Pirelli and Bridgestone and are stringently tested to optimise your MINI’s grip on the road.
BENEFITS AT A GLANCE.
All MINI Original Wheels and Tyres are specially developed for that go-kart feeling and to match the style of each individual MINI model.
Each tyre has passed stringent testing with up to 50 different quality criteria (EU Tyre Label demands compliance with only three criteria).
The tyres are perfectly attuned to suspension components and adaptive systems for maximum grip and performance.
Tyres with star marking feature high durability, top safety ratings and state-of-the-art run-flat technology.
The systematic use of special materials reduces fuel consumption and lowers noise levels.
RUN FLAT TECHNOLOGY.
Run-flat technology allows you to keep driving your vehicle for up to 80 km at a maximum speed of 80 km/h straight ahead even if tyres depressurise. That means safety and comfort for you too. It also means you don't need a spare wheel as you can simply drive to your Authorised MINI Service Centre. This means less vehicle weight and more room for luggage and sports equipment.
COOPERATION WITH LEADING MANUFACTURERS.
MINI Wheels are engineered and tested to optimise your MINI’s performance and grip. Whether your MINI needs Goodyear, Dunlop, Pirelli and Bridgestone or another premium brand, the 'Star' on the sidewall means the tyre is MINI-approved and it'll give you the best driving experience as it was specifically made for your MINI and manufactured in line with MINI standards. Tyres with the star marking are tested against 50 different quality criteria clustered in six major fields: driving properties, safety, wear, efficiency, comfort, and sports behaviour.

THIS IS WHERE THE JOURNEY BEGINS.
We do not want to reinvent the wheel, but rather bring it to perfection. This spirit is vivid in each Original MINI Wheel. Each wheel is a reflection of our high demands on durability and limits of dynamic, static and simulation testing that goes far beyond legal requirements. The result is a high-quality wheel that you can rely on in every situation – elegant in style, uncompromising in substance.
Original MINI Wheels are cast from molten aluminium. The liquid metal is filled into a mold where it cools before it is removed, strictly monitored by the latest computer technology which guarantees the high quality of our wheels. This casting process reduces costs and allows a high degree of precision and freedom of design. Cast wheels are low in weight and high in stiffness.
In the forging process, the wheel is forged from the solid piece of aluminum. The high-end option is to mill the entire spoke design after forging the base material. Forged aluminium wheels are 10 to 20 % lighter in weight than aluminium cast wheels and allow a more delicate design of the spokes.
Cylindrical flow forming is a pressure forming process. While spinning, pressure is applied to the inner barrel of the cast wheel. This process stretches and compresses the aluminum, which increases tensile strength and makes it possible to achieve particularly low wall thicknesses for the rim. The result is a very light-weight and strong wheel with significant benefits In terms of shock resistance, elongation and load capacity.
This method can also be used for both forged and cast wheels. Here, non-structurally relevant mass on the wheel is reduced by machining of material from the spokes. This further reduces the wheel weight and creates premium styling effects as undercutting between the spoke connection and the well base gives the rim styling a three-dimensional appearance.
Regardless of which manufacturing technologies are used, the surfaces of Original MINI Light Alloy Wheels can be finished in a variety of ways. The basic method – powder coating – makes the wheel resistant to environmental factors such as corrosive de-icing salt. In the past, light alloy wheels were often painted silver with a clear lacquer coating. Today, the BMW portfolio includes numerous designs and refinements that require an elaborate finishing process.
KNOWLEDGE FROM THE EXPERTS.
LESS NOISE, MORE DRIVING PLEASURE.
Original MINI Light-Alloy Wheels are fitted with innovative tyres and feature integral noise dampening for excellent acoustic comfort. A layer of foam on the tyre’s inner surface absorbs the noise produced by vibrations within the tyre’s cavity, which is filled with air causing it to act as a resonator. This leads to a substantial reduction in the level of tyre noise reaching the cabin.
FLOWING IN THE WIND.
Aerodynamically optimized light-alloy wheels contribute to the lightweight construction and reduce air resistance, further adding to the efficiency of your MINI. Their mostly enclosed surfaces bring about an effective reduction in the amount of air turbulence produced around the wheels. The Air Performance Wheels help to reduce drag in a very innovative way and unite optimised aerodynamic properties with a sophisticated sense of sporty elegance.
