Performance 12" tires are not easy to find but you be assured with the name Yokohama on them these tires are one of the best for performance street driving. The 165/55 profile provides a low squat design that will fit both 5" and 6" wide rims.
 
 
Question:
Are these tires DOT or just for racing? I used to run the A048 in my exige and those were 60 treadwear but I am not familiar with the A048R.
Answer:

ADVAN A048 radials meet DOT requirements, however, they are not recommended for driving in wet conditions where standing water is present and there is the risk of hydroplaning; drivers should drive cautiously at reduced speeds if they encounter these conditions. They are developed using high-performance compounds which become brittle at low temperatures and therefore should not be used in certain conditions. 

I would consider these a track tire - the DOT approval is really just for classes that require DOT-approved tires.

Do you know if these will fit on a 4" rim?

Hi,
Probably not, they will fit the 5 or 6 inch wheels.

What Tire Fits a Classic Mini?
Created: December 12, 2013
This is definitely a topic that keeps coming up! What wheel and tire combinations can be made to fit a Classic Mini? Just a few days ago, had a customer call for “175/55-10” as though they could just be picked off the rack! Hmmm, I’ve never seen such a size, except maybe on a Yamaha Banshee Quad for doing burnouts! I thought it would be a good time to update what combinations are currently available, and a little bit about fitting them to most Minis. It’s been pointed out by me and others, that all the common combinations end up having about the same overall rolling diameter.
