BMW/MINI Tow Hooks


Recommended Posts

For those of you implementing the new tow hook rule on a MINI Cooper or certain other BMW's, the stock bumper tow hooks use a 15.8mm diameter x 3.175mm pitch screw.  If you are searching for this oddball, the item to get is a 5/8" x 8tpi right hand acme thread bolt.  Available at McMaster-Carr.  The three inch bolt works for the rear on a base model MINI Cooper with some 5/8" washers.  The front bolt needs cut to 1.5" long.
