Absolutely you can. As long as you can clear your brakes and follow all the other fitment issues with whatever backspacing you want to go to, you should be fine. I went down from 16x7's to 15x8's because I got a smokin' deal on wheels and tires together, just plan on your future needs alot before you make a fast decision simply based on costs per tire. I am going back to the 16x7's because of specific tire sizes I want, just take into account that if you do so... you're still going to have to fork over initial $$ for the new wheels, lugs, locks, short tire stems or whatever... it may add up to alot more than you anticipate saving. Good luck with your choices and decisions
