I have been doing my research and have decided to swap out rims and get the same size rim/tire on all 4 corners. I am looking for either 2 of the rear 9 spoke 5.5 wide factory rims, or 4 (a full set) of aftermarket 15's in the 6-6.5 width range. If you have anything let me know, thanks.

I have a set of 16" all around from team Dynamics if you are interested
I’d be interested. 16s? How wide? With tires? Condition? How much?

Tire Rack has 6 inch rims.

Where are you located? I have a full set of Brabus 15", set of Brabus 17", and Team Dynamics 17". Shipping will be a killer.

I am located In Arkansas. I would be interested in 16s or 17s, to reply to the other replies here. I'd need to know, how will that affect relevant systems, abs and such, and tire clearance when changing rim size. What size tires do most people run with a 16 or 17 without spacers and rubbing?

I have 215/35-17 Hankook tires on 7.5x17 Brabus wheels on all four corners of my 2009 coupe. No rubbing, no nanny issues, etc. I am now using spacers to achieve a more flush look, but they are not needed for clearance. Good luck with your mods.

I also have a set of brand new tires, 195/50R15, that I never installed. I was going to do the same, all 4 corners the same wheels and size, but never did. I have no idea how to ship this stuff do you?

I would assume the tires would ship as is, since they are still banded, I think any of the stores, ups, FedEx, USPS could handle them. Heck, you can probably check pricing and stuff online. Rims you'd probably need to fine boxes they'd fit in and some bubble wrap or old newspaper maybe? TBH it's like a 5 hour drive from here to there, so for $60 or so in gas I would probably come get whatever stuff I'd buy off you. Unless shipping is stupid cheap. But that's all I know about shipping stuff, which probably wasn't much help 🤷‍♂️
