MINI Floating Hubcaps
Not a lot with MINI has been going on, however, MINI has developed a fairly cool product for any current owners.
Typically, wheels on vehicles have mismatched logos on their hubcaps; by that, I mean the hubcap angle do not match between the wheels, and these days it can take quite a bit of effort to get them all perfectly aligned. Some vehicles even require going into the shop and completely realigning the wheel to get hubcaps perfectly aligned.
Instead, MINI has created an innovation similar to the old ‘spinners’ that became very popular during the mid-2000’s. These new little innovations are called floating wheel hubcaps, and are as easy to install as popping out your old hubcaps and installing the new ones. These new hubcaps have a unique design using precisely positioned weights on the front of the cap and a flexible connection to the wheel hub extension, which allows the hubcaps to maintain the same plane no matter what speed you may be moving at.
It’s a small thing, but as any MINI owners know, it’s the small things that make all the difference. From better photo opportunities to better showcasing your JCW on the road, this is a perfect gift for any MINI enthusiast. Oh, and by the way, you can find these new accessories at our MINI of Wichita location, available in either MINI or John Cooper Works style!
