It seems your taking the riicer route. Might as well go with low profile tires.

Re: do i have to get new tires for new wheels?

Are you two ****ing serious? Of course he can. What's the ****ing difference between a 185-65R15 that came from the factory versus one you can buy from a tire store? Oh that's right, nothing. Same sizing and everything. Did I say I recommended it? no. It's possible.

Re: do i have to get new tires for new wheels?

^i was in that same case too. when i was autocrossing, i got some new lightweight 14s bc going larger would have brought me out of h-stock and into a modified class.

also, tires are dirt cheap for 15s.
