Reasons to switch from17s or 18s to 15s or 16s
 
What are the main reasons for going from the stock 17" or 18" wheels to a 15 or 16" wheel?

Cheaper tires?
Cheaper Wheels?
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

Although i have 18s and actually swapped my stock 18s for different 18s i will say that there are a lot more tire options in other sizes...
