Hartge Introduces UnionJack Wheel for MINI

It seems only natural that a the Union Jack, the official flag of the United Kingdom, should eventually find its way into a wheel design for a MINI vehicle. The only thing that's odd is that it took a German tuner to make it happen.

Hartge introduces the UnionJack wheel for all first-generation (R50/R52/R53) and second-generation (R56) models of MINI. Sized 7.5 x 18 inches and wearing a 48mm front and 43mm rear offset, the wheels are a direct fit for the vehicles. Hartge recommends fitting 215/35-17 tires in the front and 225/35-17.
