Like the look?
Lighter tires?
Lighter wheels?
More chushion for off roading?

Also if you keep the tire size the same or increase it from stock and decrease your wheel size, your sidewalls should be a good amount taller than stock.

How does this effect the ride, cornering, and highway driving?

Sorry for the noob questions.
You pretty much answered your own question. All of those are reasons most all of people that go 15's or 16's considered
