Mini wheel arches

Post by Steviel81 on Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:52 pm

I spoke to someone who said he fitted some Mini wheel arches to his van so I was thinking of doing the same to give it a slightly lower look and means I can fit slightly wider better offset wheels.

Has anyone on here fitted them? If you have, do you have any problems opening the side sliding doors?

It's these arches

Just measured the gap from the outside edge if the wheel arch to the inside of the door (when side door is open) and there is only 40mm gap.
So it all depends on how wide those Mini arches are at the top....they are 90mm at their widest, that would be at the bottom....I think.

They may be alright, I don't know....supose it depends how much they taper off towards the top.
Think someone on here has used arches on their van, don't know if they were narower Mini arches or what confused .
Or are they called 'spats' .

You could ask 'Large 519' where he got his arches...(Halfway down the page).....
