Damn, I could try this out right now lol. But you know, Mini runs 175 tires on a 15 inch wheel, I think the wheel itself might be in the neighbourhood of 6 inch wide, or even 5.5?

5Zigen liss on their website that some of their rims with 42 offset are for Civic, Integra, Miata, and NEW MINI

So I would say yes; they will fit. If there are tire on them make sure the aspect ratio and width are appropriate for your car.

I think the hub size would be different on these rims. You may be able to get away with it, if they are the same size, or you if you find a hub ring that works with it.

175 series tires....yikes. go for a 15" of your choice and get some 205/50/15's. will give you 30mm more rubber on the road per tire. smaller tires would be great with snow, but in the summer you'd ideally want as much rubber on the road as possible...especially if you like to drive aggressive often or even from time to time.
