    Will they fit the same? I have a 3 hole / 4" countertop and like the wide spread look better ... does it matter if I buy a mini over a standard?

    A standard widespread typically requires 8". SOME will fit in 6, which would be a custom or self-drilled sink. NO standard will fit 4", hence the advent of the mini.

    The spout, trim rings, and handles of an 8" widespread are too large for a 4" drilled sink.
