My car is an EX-T coupe lowered on eibach prokit.

With the diameter the same, will downsizing to the 15s make the car any lower? And would there be any issues?

Your car will remain at the same height since you will still have the same overall diameter.

The only difference is that you may notice would be that the car may feel a little floaty, since you have 2 more inches of extra soft sidewall.
