    I've been told different things about what size I can go. I was hoping for 15s but someone told me I can't because my rotors are to big I'm just looking for the best option and the right answer

    16s are the smallest you can go without mods. It's not the rotors that are too big. It is the calipers that rub. I have seen some guys take their calipers and have the outer edge machined down to fit 15s.

    Cheapest basic black rim is going to be a 15x8 or 15x10, 16x 8 or 16x10 black Steely, like a super 8 or D ring. I run 15x10 chrome Super 8s on my Jeep.
