Thought I would gather all the 15" rim info I found together to make it easier for those who are interested in fitting their MK's with 15" rims and tires. If anyone knows of anything that should be here but isn't, let me know and I'll add it in.
A comment on caliper clearance:
Even when the 15" rims fit, clearance between front calipers and the rim can be very close. This may be more of a concern for steel rims as they can bend.
* 15" Rims That Fit *
Ravine alloy 15x8
These rims are lighter than stock 17" rims (18 vs 22 lbs), which can help offset the weight of larger tires.
There are at least 4 members who used this rim with various tires.
