15's VS 17's

Hey guys!
The time has finally come, I will be ordering my new wheels/tires this week and need some last minute advice! I want the Goodyear MT/R with Kevlars in 33x12.50, origonally i was going to just get 15" wheels but i saw a thread on the brake caliper rubbing on the wheel because it was too small. I have 16s now and am not quite sure how to check to make sure there will be no rubbing with 15s. Also if any of you have pictures of your 15s and 17s i would love to beable to compare them within this thread! Thanks guys! What would you choose???

You will be fine with 15s. The problem with the brake caliper occurs I think when the larger front rotors came into play in I believe 2003 or 2004. I have 15s on my 07 and it does come really close but still clears.
