I would check to see what brakes you have first, as you may have to change them before thinking about smaller wheels

Yeah, you might need to swap to 7.5" discs if you don't have them already. I've just done this on my current mini as it's easy and fairly cheap to do.

Other than that, you may find your arches look ok - I'd do the wheels (and brakes if required), lower it a bit, and see how it looks.

Sportspack arches can actually look alright with 10's. I reckon you'll be OK to fit the Grp2's too, as they're a similar sort of size.

Im not 100% sure but i thought if you removed sportpack arches, you have to weld up the holes and paint as there arnt MANY arch that will cover the marks left by them...dont quote me though.

Theres a mini on theminiforum with sportpack arches and 10inch mambas and it sure does look the dogs
