wait....is this a trick question or are you really that brain dead? If you want to put 15 in. tires on it, you need to put 15 inch WHEELS on it....sorry if Im being ignorant but, WOW dude....

well, a size doesnt have to mean down to a 15, maybe he has a 245 tire, and he could go down to a 225 or so.
