Don't say they don't fit, because they do.

I just want to know if any of you are running them.

That pic proves NOTHING. Hell I could go take a pic of my buddies 5 bolt 14" rims and say they fit.

I am personally running 16" for my winter tires and you can't fit a pen between the caliper and the rim, you wanna run 15", you gotta modify your brake calipers. [front only]

You have to grind the calipers just a little bit to fit 15s, he just asked for a pic of the wheels. Let me find a pic of them on the Cobalt.

You just proved us right, you HAVE to grind the calipers, therefor they DON'T fit unless you modify your calipers...as we have said.

When did I say that you don't have to modify the calipers???

I only asked who was running 15s, because they do fit.

Why would I want to grind down the calipers when I could just go out and buy 16" rims???

I'm confused... what's the point of this thread exactly?

he is right people, more sidewall, USUALLY means more traction. I am going to be working with a racing tire comapny soon here to try to get my power to the ground, I'll let ya know what we come up with.

Why not just call John at M&Htires.com , he is local and one of the greatest guys you will ever speak to.

lol, if you have to modify the vehicle in any way, IMHO they do not hit.
Its the same way I run a 2.5" pulley. A little modification. I will say M&H has great customer service, I lived in Michigan and was nothing but pleased with them. The first night I went to the track John had me call him after every run to try and dial things in. Good company to deal with. I know god+1 knows the guys there too.
