15 inches wheels

Hi all

I would like to put 15 inches wheels on my 2005 Impreza RS for the winter in order to cut on winter tire price. One dealer offered me to install 15 inches Forester wheels whereas an other dealer proposed me 16 inches wheels stating that 15 inches wheels won't clear the break caliper. Anyone tried it?

I think he may be right that 15" will foul the calipers...

Surely 16" tyres will be nearly as cheap
All the best
