I'm currently running on my MINI a 17x7 48mm offset 4x100 lug stock wheel.  I was planning to get another brand of wheel but having a hard time finding the perfect specs.  The wheels I want have a 17x7 and 4x100 spec, but the offsets seem to stay consistently at 40mm on all the 17 inch wheels and lug spacing.  Is this an important factor for overall stability of the vehicle or just a very small difference?

I believe 40-45 is pretty typical for the MINI. Come down to looks really. Not going to compromise the handling signficantly going up or down a bit.
