Changing front wheels and tires is no small expense.  I think it would look really good though.
Long as they clear fender.

$500 isn't a huge expense.  Another set of springs was almost half that.  I could probably fit 20s inside the wheel wells with the right width, backspacing and offset.  I have a cart saved with two AR Torq Thrust to match the current set- 16 x 8 with 4 inch back spacing and -11 offset.  235/60R16 BF Goodrich Advantage T/A Sport tires.  If the springs don't get me exactly where I want to be, then I'll pull the trigger on the cart.  At least a 16 will put the tire back up in the wheel well where I want it.  I don't think it looks right if the front is higher on the tire than the back, which is a condition more difficult to achieve with a 16 rear and 15 front.  The rake also pushes down on the front end more at park, and works the nose down more during braking.
