No..IMO just wait till you need new tires then upgrade to 17 or bigger. Besides the stock tires don't last that long anyway...lol I only got about 20,000 miles before mine were down past the wearbars. and that was with proper inflation and rotations. And using studded tires in winter.

definitely not. 15" rims will make the car look weird, and like you're too cheap to buy 'real' rims. Def go 17'' minimum. Rims are something you do not want to go cheap with. Wait until you can afford some nice 17's or 18's and decent tires. then save for the sportlines afterwards.

I'd wait alil longer and get atleast 17's, keep in mind if you go 17s the price is not as high as you think(just depends on the type of wheels) and that tires are usually much cheaper between 17 and 18s. I wish I had 17's sometimes cause of the cost of the tires I want.
