Re: 15\"vs16\"

mount the 15" wheels, and see if they clear, if so, youre golden. however i would highly advise against going smaller wheels than stock for running the larger tires. but if it works and its free of cheap, go for it. youll probably never run into any problems but theres always that chance since your messing with the oem standards. you may lose a small bit acceleration and power since youll be running more rubber and less wheel.
