With Christmas right around the corner I'm looking into to getting a set of rims. Instead of going for big flashy 18's or 19's I was looking into buying a set of Rota Slipstreams. Seen here. I really because of the lightweight. I want to know if going from a 16" rim to a 15" rim would affect my gearing? What size tire's should I get with the 15's? Or should I just say screw the difference of 4.4 lbs of rim weight between the two and get a set of 16's?

Lol! I already have stock 16's why would i need another set? Those rims are only 12.4 lbs in 15" and only 13.5 lbs in 16". You guys didn't answer my questions either...

as long as your tire's outside diameter is the same as 215/50R16 (205/60R15 is close) then you wont have any "gearing" problems. On the other hand your car will handle like a kia..... get 17's.

Ya my buddy uses those rimes on his Integra for road racing. He swears by them. Also you guys making fun, how many people road racing with 17"+ not many. Think about it. You will have no problem if you get the right size tire.
