I run 15 x 5.5" wheels (Nissan Z-car wheels) and cram 205/60x15 tyres on
them - and then push these around around a race track.

This was a little experiment that I tried for half a race season (and
have raved about last year so I won't here) but want to go back to 14"
rims.  I currently run 185/60x14 as my street tyre and want to go to the
Bridgestone Potenza (R compound) 195/60x14 on the 5" rim.

What would you like to know about the 15" rim (and why would you want
your car to walk around on stilts as a normal street car anyway)?
