Wheel size

Hey guys. Just lifted this week and now I'm throwing around the idea of getting bigger tires and new wheels with more back spacing. I was looking at getting cragar soft 8's on duratrac's 245/75. I was originally thinking that I'd stick with 16" rims because that's what is on already. However the soft 8's are almost $40 cheaper if I buy a 15" rim. Will I have any problems if I choose to go one size down?

It won't interfere with the brakes being a size smaller?

Not as long as you're running cragars it won't...some 15's won't clear caliper

Okay cool. So 15x7 with 4" of backspacing is good?

15x7 Cragar Soft 8s for under 60 bucks. Can't really beat that IMHO
