nice! i just hate the way the xA body dwarfs wheels
I chose 15" wheels for a couple of reasons. The number 1 reason was the drop, I made a comprimise. I would rather have a smaller lighter weight wheel with a larger drop on the suspension. There is literally 1.5 inches of clearance between my tire and the lower spring support for the front struts. Second was rotational mass. The stock xA only has 108HP and bolting a heavy wheel onto a small engine was not what I wanted even if I'm at 120hp now. Third, the roads in my area suck so I wanted a meaty tire for motoring. Finally, and I find this one rather important, I really like the look of the smaller wheel. It may look a bit different in the pictures but they hare an excellent size in the flesh. I like being different.
Sleeperlove: There is always the possibility of running a wider profile tire. My studded snow tires will be a 195/60/15 and I will be checking clearances when they are on.
