Will 15" Rims fit on SN95's

Hi Again,
Something else I'd like to do if it will fit. My car came Stock with 16" Rims. I currently have 17's on the car. I would like to use Smaller Rims (15")
with Big Fat Tires like we did in the 70's. Just not sure they'll fit without rubbing on the Calipers. Anyone use 15" rims on a SN95?
Hate the Big Rims w/ Low Profile Tires !!! Not the look I want on my car. Also the Ride is Very Uncomfortable with the Big Rims & Tiny Tires. You feel every Bump!
Sure wish I knew how to add pics to my posts as I have a pic of a 94 Mustang Poster with the exact look I'm after.
Besides...I'm thinking that smaller Rims will get the jump on a car with bigger rims at take off. Kind of like the idea of a bicycle with a small front sprocket compared to a large front sprocket. I know that the bigger wheels will do better in a longer race but I think (theoretically) that smaller rims will do better in a 1/4 mile. After a 1/4 mile...the larger wheels have the advantage in my opinion.
I have no facts to base this on...it's just my thoughts.
So...will 15" fit???
Hmmm, might of got the pic to post...let's see.

Guess Not. Can't figure this picture thing out. Wish they'd make it simple with an add pic to text link that pops up browse. Not sure how you guys add pics to your text.
Been trying to figure it out for over a year.

15s will fit on the rear with non Cobra brakes and SHOULD fit on the front with the regular GT brakes. However, it will look effing stupid. The stock wheels at around 25 and a half inches are small enough, looks like a set of damn roller skates on the car. I run slightly oversized wheels at 26.3" up front and 26.6" out back on 18" staggered wheels. 235/45/18 and 275/40/18. Plenty of sidewall, comfy ride, fills up the wheel wells nicely and looks x1000 better.



Also the tire size has little to do with 1/4 time as to overall gearing. If you want to run taller tires just run a steeper rear gear to compensate. I could throw 4.30s in this thing and still have a good cruise on the highway and come flying the hell out of the hole even with a NA 2V and bigger rear tires. I just might do that with a .62 overdrive. Your overall goal with the 1/4 is to be hitting the traps at the top of 4th gear anyway so just calculate accordingly to whatever size you choose.

I want to run Mickey Thomas ET Street Radials. Big Fat Race Type Tires. I hate that Low Profile Tire Crap. Skinny little tires look crappy to me. Did you look at the pic of the poster? It's in my pics. That looks awesome to me.
