Nothing beats the smell of fresh rubber

Update by Per Schroeder to the Mini Cooper project car
Aug 5, 2005

A fresh set of Kumho ECSTA V710s arrived on our doorstep. It’s one thing to do well in our recent autocross tire test, we’re interested in seeing how the V710s work over the lifespan of the tires. The 215/40R16s are significantly wider and shorter than the 175/65R15s that our MINI came with.

We’re currently waiting for a set of 16x6.5 Rota Slipstreams to arrive. These new wheels are stock class legal for the MINI, lightweight (13 pounds) and cheap (under $130 per wheel!) What’s not to like?
