Default Tires

I have a 2002 Limited and I live in a climate where they salt the roads. I wanted to change tires and rims for the winter here. Does anyone know if the base 15" tires and rims will fit on the Limiteds without any modifications? What if anything would this do to the speedometer or computer? Thought if I ran the 15's like on the base model they would go threw the snow better and then save my original wheels for summers.

As far as I know the bolt circle is 5x100mm for all models. I'm reasonably sure 15" and 16' are interchangeable. If I wasn't so lazy I'd try swapping wheels from my cruiser to my wife's or vice-versa. Mine has base 15" wheels,while my wife's has painted 16". But I'm lazy,old ,etc.

If you really want to do it right, get good snow tires and wheels for the winter. See http://www.tirerack.com/index.jsp and check out the section on snow tires. Bolt pattern is the same, and overall diameter SHOULD stay the same if you pay attention to that info about the tires, so there will be no significant effect on spedo/odo.
