Why Change and Rotate Tires

The tires on your MINI play an imperative role in the handling and performance of your MINI. Equipping your MINI with MINI-approved tires will ensure the optimal performance of your MINI, as they are designed to MINI’s performance standards and are specifically matched to each model. You can identify MINI-approved tires by distinct stars molded into the sidewalls. These MINI-approved tires will ensure solid acceleration, stable cornering, and smooth braking, pairing perfectly with your MINI’s nimble power and your motoring demands.


MINI Tires

MINI Tire Types

MINI-approved tires come in several tire types, each designed to perform best for your lifestyle demands and seasonal needs. Most MINI tires are all-season tires, which are designed for a smooth and quiet ride, all-season traction, and long-lasting tread life. Other MINI-approved tires are engineered for specific tasks and conditions. MINI-approved tires include:

  • MINI Approved All-Season Tires: The best tire for year-round use and all four seasons. With an aggressive tread pattern and unique composition, these tires grip the road and provide reliable traction in a variety of climates without sacrificing handling and cornering. Although suitable for all climates, if the temperature gets below 45ºF, cold weather tires would be best.
  • MINI Approved Cold Weather Tires: When the weather is 45ºF or below, cold weather has an immediate impact on most tires. This impact will reduce traction, steering, and responsiveness.
  • MINI Approved Run-Flat Tires: Run-Flat tires will eliminate the stress of waiting for roadside assistance or changing a flat tire on the side of the road. In the event of a flat tire, MINI Approved Run-Flat tires can enable you to continue motoring thanks to reinforced sidewalls, heat-resistant rubber, and a sophisticated tire pressure monitoring system.
  • MINI Approved High Performance Tires: For track-ready response, MINI-Approved High-Performance Tires will enable you to take corners with confidence. These tires are engineered, tested, and precision calibrated to optimize your MINI’s athletic handling in good weather conditions.

Tire wear warning signs

When your MINI’s tires begin to wear, there are several warning signs that can be easily identified and felt. From lower fuel efficiency and an uneven ride feel to unusual noises and poor handling, tire wear can be identified at home. In order to ensure your safety and your MINIs performance, you should bring your MINI to Cincinnati MINI’s service center as soon as you notice any of the following wear indications:

  • Less traction or less responsive braking
  • Hydroplaning in wet weather
  • Noticing a rougher or noisier ride
  • Loss of control while cornering
  • Noticeable tread loss


At Cincinnati MINI, our state-of-the-art Service Center is staffed with MINI-trained and certified technicians that know the best tires for your specific MINI model. We also offer a vast selection of OEM parts, a full-service menu, and service specials. We also offer flexible service and part financing and have been recognized as an award-winning Service and Repair Center.

We recommend that you visually examine your tires once a month for bloating, scrapes, or deflation. Other tire wear warning signs include:

  • Less traction or less responsive braking
  • Hydroplaning in wet weather
  • Noticing a rougher or noisier ride
  • Less control while cornering
  • Noticeable tread loss

You should check your tire pressure at least once a month. We recommend that you check the pressure when the tires are cold. Air expands with heat, so checking tire pressure after driving will lead to an inaccurate reading.

Wheel alignments are important for drivability, and improving your tire lifespan. If you notice your MINI pulling to one side, poor steering response, or unusual wear on the front tires, you should bring your MINI in for a wheel alignment as soon as possible.

If you’ve noticed your MINI pulling to one side, poor steering responses, or unusual wear on your front tire, bring your car in immediately to see if your wheel has become unaligned.

Tire balance is important in keeping your MINI in good condition. An out-of-balance wheel can cause damage such as wear on shocks, bearings, and suspension parts.
