Ok I have an R50 mini cooper, looking at a deep dish wheel, maybe OMP. Never installed one before, are boss kits in standard sizes or are they car specific?
Thanks in advance 😁

They are car specific. They have different size shafts and splines to which the wheel/boss attaches.

Yup, as Renny said - specific to car.

Give Hamish at Panda Racing a call, he sorted my last one out for a decent price.

We went with a Sparco P300 wheel. Small, but no dish.

I moved away from dished wheels for a few reasons

1- Addition of a boss kit spaces the wheel out
2 - addition of a quick release kit spaces it further - was too close for additional space taken by dish (based on leg spacing)
3 - we added a button panel - and you'd no be able to reach with a decent dish on the wheel
