I will probably cheap out and re-skin the stock 15'' rims with 185-65-15 tires (24.43'' tall...same as the 18''ers) when the time comes. If I get inspired I would go for some 18'' rims the same spec as those in the OP. (maybe those exact rims actually)
Either way, taller tires will not only look better, but will go towards bringing the speedo back into line with reality, and the effective overall higher drive ratio will not be a problem for the Micras ballsy engine
