Most important thing about wheels is they need to be round ones.

Not as daft as it sounds, especially if you buy secondhand, check they havent been kerb or buckled.

You can buy 4 to 5 bolt wheel adapters but why incur the added expense when there are so many OEM and aftermarket wheel choices?

There are so many secondhand and new aftermarket Mini wheels available in various sizes, I would stick with those with all the correct offsets, etc.
