One of the things that irks our sense as motoring journalists and photographers is when we shoot the wheels of the car. To create the picture more aesthetically appealing, to tell the least, we always want to maintain the logo on the wheel hubcap in the correct direction or we just want the pictures to be ideal.

Now, if you have someone with you when shooting a vehicle, that's not a issue. But in fact, we shoot alone most of the time. Luckily, Mini has introduced an addition to its initial range of accessories that solves our private annoyances–a series of flying wheel hubcaps that remains upright.

For Mini and John Cooper Works designs, the flying hubcaps collection is accessible. It does not spin with the wheel, keeping the Mini logo in a horizontal place that can be read. For some, this fresh Mini item may sound dull, but for purposes we believe it's fairly cool.

Mini was prepared to use the fresh accessory feature by using a "precisely positioned weights on the front of the cap and a flexible connection to the wheel hub extension." Even better, Mini said within a couple of measures you can readily exchange the fresh flying wheel hubcaps with the present hubcaps.


If you are interested in new Mini floating wheel caps, wait no more as you can purchase the new Mini accessory through approved Mini Dealerships or through online shopping. It is accessible in two variants: the standard Mini logo or the branding of John Cooper Works.

Meanwhile, these days Mini is a little quiet. Perhaps the automaker is busy with the upcoming fresh Countryman, or perhaps in the coming months it's up to something really large. Keep an eye on the business and we're always ready to give you the news.
