No, just switching calipers won't let u get a 15 or 16 inch wheel. You'll need suspension components that allow for a 15 or 16 inch wheel

You don't have to change brake calipers with 17 inch wheels. In fact most can get away without changing out the LCA either. 17's will get you the option to run slicks too.
