Star-marked tyres are a basic part of every Mini Original complete wheel. These tyres have been developed in close cooperation with leading tyre manufacturers such as Pirelli, Bridgestone, Dunlop and Goodyear. They are ideally suited to the vehicle concept of each Mini model.
Mini tyres offer lower rolling resistance due to the special materials used in the treads and sidewalls. The materials increase the tyres' dimensional stability. As a result, the tyres last longer and also reduce fuel consumption. They are perfectly matched to the style of each Mini model and to ensure optimum handling in every driving situation, they must prove themselves in necessary safety tests with up to 50 different quality criteria.
The individual models differ not only visually, but also concerning the available power. The choice of tyres is also dependent on performance. For instance, Dunlop SP Sport tyres are part of the Mini Cooper S Works original equipment. Various models also feature Excellence and UltraGrip 7 and Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 2. Of course, you can also choose tyres from other manufacturers. However, it is recommended only to use Mini tyres approved by the manufacturer. Buying such tyres will ensure that the specified values for fuel consumption and noise development adhere.
Mini can be equipped with tyres between 15 and 18 inches as standard. One of the most popular models the Mini Clubman in the 120 kW model variant is fitted with 175/60 R16 tyres as standard. Wider tyres such as 195/55 R16 or 205/45 R17 are also optional. The smaller 85 kW version is initially fitted with 175/65 R15 tyres. The Mini Countryman SUV can be equipped with tyres up to 225 millimetres wide.
