Fella I run 16" borbet ts and I'm still lower than Jordan's morals. Plus I don't have to worry (too) much about raised manhole covers

The diameter of the wheel shouldn't make a difference to your ride-height if you do it correctly, as you'd fit lower profile tyres to maintain broadly the same rolling radius. There are plenty of tyre sizing tools on the web to help you work out what ought to be fitted to any replacement wheels of your choice.
