If the tires are for a 16.5" wheel then a 15" wheel will not fit. You will have to get some 16.5 wheels.

16.5" tires only fit on a 16.5" rim. If I were you, I would replace the 16.5" set up with ANYTHING ELSE. You are really limited on choices for both rims and tires with that size.

Have to stick with the 16.5! Most tire places won't touch tires and wheels that don't match in diameter...too much of a liability!

I agree and understand 100%...I was just making sure he knows that a 15" rim won't work with the odd ball 16.5".
