Question R16 rims

Hi guys
Just checking if someone managed to put R15 rims/tyres on the CX3. I'm kinda new to this and I need to increase the profile on my mazda but I think I need to downsize the rims otherwise it will not fit.
Please let me know your opinions

Cheers

Do you mean 15” or 16” rims, both sizes are in the post. What does “profile” mean, tyre width, tyre height, ride height, or? What is the source of the new rims, offset, etc? We cont read your mind.....

yes I saw that discussion but they were only talking about it. i wonder if they tried it actually. i need to downsize the wheel size aa I need a tyres with stronger profile. I do a lot of forest driving and driving on unsealed roads and I and don't want to lift the car. Extra inch on the tyres will do the trick for me

Im going to go out on a limb here and presume he is asking if anyone has installed 15" wheels since he wants to gain a taller tire sidewall for offroading purposes and increasing sidewall on current set 16(?) might be close to rubbing. I remember seeing a few threads on debating 15" wheels for a winter set etc but never saw any results or specs so I would be curious to this as well if anyone has any info.
