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?

Nope, I run 15's w/ 4" back spacing...looks sexy and you'll have more tire choices

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?
