University over, R99s fitted

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

Well, university finished for me just over a month ago, I finally graduated on Friday June 30th 2006 after 4 years at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. So I am now officially:

Martin Lewis B.A. (Hons), M.Eng. (Cantab) :D

As a graduation present to myself I finally got the new wheels on my MINI Cooper. I decided to go with non-runflat 17″ tyres in the end, largely because of cost and also to try and prevent the ride becoming too harsh after the upgrade from 16″ to 17″ wheels. The tyres I chose were Falken Ziex ZE512 205/45R17 which are the same size as the OEM runflat fitment, but nearly one third of the price!

Anyway, see the results for yourself - I’m really pleased as they’re a bit different to the normal large wheels fitted to MINIs, so mine now looks a bit special ;)
