Default wheel sizing and other questions (17" to 15")

So I'm chillin on these stock MSM 17" boats and want to get a new wheel/tire package along with my coils (Megan EZ).

First question: Do I need to do anything to go from 17" to 15"? will this alter my speedo tach or odo readings?

2nd question: I'm trying to get pretty low, planning on rolling and pulling fenders.. and want to get the widest 15" wheel I can without rubbing. Definitely want to buy nice wheels once and get it done right the first time. What do you guys recommend for wheel width and offset?

In a perfect world I would order my coils wheels and tires all at once, mount coils, mount wheels and simply adjust ride-height with the coils until I like the stance. Here's what I'm afraid of.. getting the offset wrong and having my wheels stick out past the fender after its been rolled and pulled. how do I get this right the first time, Help?

your threads are getting progressively more idiotic and your ricer side is coming out blatantly now. leave and go tto club ricer, otherwise your stay here is about to get very unpleasant.

not sure why the negativity, I thought this was a place to learn and help others.. There's no specific thread addressing my questions, I've been looking on multiple forums for about an hour.

I was really excited to learn from you and others here, I hope other members dont feel the same way you do 18psi. Talk about bashing a guy innocently asking for some shared knowledge

You are in the wrong forums for this type of question. If you haven't caught on, when he says club ricer he means clubroadster.com which is a forum for people mostly like yourself. This is not the place to ask how to slam a car on cheap coilovers and stupid offset wheels. You will have better luck there is all he is saying.

You used the S word.

To point you in the right direction, research 6ULs, Jongbloeds and the like.

You need 15x11s, around a -15 offset.

Serious post OP:

You'll want 25mm offset to have very little interference, or 20mm if you want a more aggressive flush look and a little more rolling and pulling needed.

Now that you've got your answer, GTFO with your stance and your slammed comments.
