wheel clearance

i have been looking at tires and rims and have been finding that alot of them are r15's or r17's for the size tire that i am interested in. i have r16's currently on my truck. my question is this: if i went with the r15's will i have any trouble with brake clearance. also i am interested in doing a disc brake conversion for the rear brakes. does anyone know where i can look for conversion kits?

Nobody is going to help you until you tell them what you've got for a vehicle.

Re: wheel clearance

currently it is a 2 wheel drive, but am planning on either doing a straight axel conversion or get this old '78 chevy 3/4 suburban from the salvage yard that i have found and pull the body off and build the undercarrage and then when my engine is ready i will install it in that and do a body swap.
