Can i run 15" Wheels on our SMB?

We have standard brakes with a dynatrac pro roc 60. Discs all the way around. Ford stock full floater outback. Looks like the caliper will fit and there's a good 1.5" around where the 16" rim is.

Anyone know?

Are we talking 15in or 16 in? The body of the post says 16 but subject says 15...??

What size tires would you be running?

If you go very large, could it be more diffivult to find tires that will carry the load with more actual tire wall in play?

Talking about 15" wheels. I was just measuring the area around my 16's is all. I would be running 35x12.50's or 33 x 12.50's. The one problem i have found is that there aren't many, If none at all .. wheel manuf. making 15x8 wheels with 8 lug bolt pattern.
