Default Question about rims

So I have had an 04 pt cruiser grand touring for about a year now and I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to cars. My brother took my car to New York and ended up with a flat tire. Short story is he some how managed to bend the rim and now it is....well messed up, to put it kindly. My question is how many problems may arise if i switch out my factory 16x6 rims with factory 15x6 rims. I have been looking at Moon wheels for a while because I am working on making my PT look like an old-school mobster car. If it would have been cheaper to buy 1 rim and replace the dented one i would have done it but searching around I found that for my rims its between 200$-320$ to replace ONE! Any help/feedback will be greatly appreciated.

If you have a GT, you have 17", not 16" wheels.
Also, the GT has fatter disks in the front, so not every PT wheel clears the caliper.
the good news is stock 15" steel wheels fit.
Hope that helps.
