I run 13x8 wheels with 4" backspace when autocrossing. The tires are Hoosier 225/45/13. They do stick out quite a bit, but I'm not sure how much of that is due to the tire size. I'm getting some 13x8 alloys for daily driving, and they'll have 215/50/13 Sumitomos on them, so I'll see what the difference is when I get those installed.

If you want to see how the car looks with the Hoosiers on, click on the link in my signature line and watch the latest video. At races, I get a lot of people telling me the car looks like a Hotwheels car and they really like it. I think 15 inch wheels that stuck out a bit would look pretty badass myself.

Yes it will fit.

Depends on a few variables, but yes, it will fit.

Here's a shot to show how far out they will be with these specs:

4" backspace
13x8 wheels
215/50/13 tires


15 inch wheels should be similar...
