Thanks for the update Steve.

Sounds like they are an excellent option.

I'm going to use them on my Speedwell car if I ever get it finished :)

Seriously considering a set for 145's for HOY's 3 1/2" rims and 165's for the 'S', so any reviews here greatly appreciated. Again thanks Steve.

That said it'll be a couple of years at least away for HOY.

I only noticed this thread today. I ordered a set of falkens to get my mini back on the road. They arrived today! I'll see how I get on with them but I'll definitely keep these in mind.

I've just had the mini spares repro S 3.5 inch wheels and 145 blockley tyre combination balanced today . Had a set of five balanced and they have all ended up with approx 35 grams inside and 60 grams outside of knock on weight added to balance them . It's certainly spoilt the look of the wheels for me . Silver weights on white rims . I could of course paint the weights white. What doesn't help it is the size of the new weights . Anyone else had this issue with this wheel / tyre combo ? ..... ken

I’ve said before I find them very heavy on the jags, good in the wet..
Did you try rotating the tyre on the rim?

Hi Ken
Our balancer has a setting for alloy wheels where the weight position is calculated so they can be stuck on the inside of the wheel .
Cant see why it couldnt be done on a steel wheel.
