Its not so much the size of the alloy its the size of the tyre on them. The bigger the wheel you get the small the read wall should be to keep the speedo accurate.
If you put new smaller tyres on with the 15" alloys it will be ok its just with the ones they have your speedo will be 9% out.

Recommned % out is 2-3

You will also loose accleration, power and MPG by putting oversize wheels on
