I have a 2010 mini hardtop with a cold weather and sort

Customer Question

I have a 2010 mini hardtop with a cold weather and sort package. It had different tires than Les Swab replaced them with. I can't find anything on line or from the dealer where I bought it. My problem is that the car is going 4 mph slower than the car says on its digital read out. I know it's a tire issue I just don't know the original tire size that it was upgraded with.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Let me see if I can locate the tire size info.

Can you tell me if this model is equipped with 15,16 or 17 inch tires and I will see what I can locate from there as I see this was an option on some of these?

Let me know what tire size is on the vehicle now as well,thanks Pete.
