Default 20" wheel downsize

I'm tired of expensive 20" tires and my OEM chrome 20" wheels so I'm thinking of going down to 15" so I can get some black wheels and tires and not break the bank. However, I don't want to lose height. She's sitting on 275/60/R20's so if I went down to 15's, what size tires would I have to go with to keep my truck height?

17's are the smallest you can go, because of the brakes...

Damn. I hate 17's because they're expensive too.

18's might be a bit cheaper but I doubt it.

That makes sense. Now, to find someone who wants the 20's for a set of black 17"s

Would love to, but there's a bit of distance.

I'm lookin to do the same thing, except to make it a smoother ride by having more rubber under me. From what I've seen, the 18's are slightly cheaper cuz they're more popular. That's what it looks like to me...
