Not trying to start a trend as this definitely bucks the current trend of larger and larger wheels. I plan to install 15" MB Mesh X wheels on my xB soon. Only other mods I've done are the Clazzio 2-tone vinyl covers (black/gray w/ red stitch), short shift kit, redline MTL/90 fluid change, and Eibach pro-kit springs. The springs definitely evened out the front/back nicely. My reasoning for going slightly smaller on the rims is that I want to smooth out the ride a little more, and not too long ago were 15" wheels considered large for a compact. 16's may have been fine, since I have a feeling that alot of my complaints regarding the ride may be sourced to the crappy stock bridgestones. Well anyways, I'll try to post pics with the 15's once I get them. I've looked all over the web and haven't found any pics of 2gen xBs with 15's.
