With either of those tires, you will have less than 1% speedo error (up to 3% is considered normal deviance). I think to pull off 18's you need some sort of aftermarket bodywork, on my car for example they would look a little big. I really like those particular ASA's though, I'd buy them. Be very careful though, Minis have a slightly smaller centrebore than E30's, so if those wheels are made to exact Mini spec, they WILL NOT work an on E30. Contacting ASA or even Tirerack will get you a firm answer on that, ask them for the centrebore measurement. It needs to be at least 57.1mm.

You will want 15mm H&R hubcentric spacers, with longer bolts or a stud conversion.
