The skanks that will sell their body to companies and walk around wearing next to nothing at drift events?

14s are fine. Your biggest problem is probably going to be finding wheels in 14" that you like and readily available/cheap tires that you like that will stretch on your 14s and fit the way you want.

What does the fact that 15's fill up the arches quite well have to do with your ability or inability to drift?
What does the "stance" of your car have to do with your ability or inability to drift?
Why do you want 14 inch wheels? It sounds like you're doing this mostly for aesthetic reasons.
If you're "big" into drifting, shouldn't you know this kind of elementary stuff already?
You could start off by telling everyone else what your current setup is and reasons as to why you feel the need to change it.

....... no... just wondering if downsizing would effect the "stance" i have, because i want to keep this setup and ride height. I just want a smaller overall feel while building my suspension more towards drifting, i still want a comfy and clean feel, because this is also my daily. i just feel the wheels will throw this off..

You will probably run a 60 series sidewall on a 14". Overall diameter won't change too significantly vs a 195 or 205/50/15. I don't really see the value in going to 14's for anything other than a nostalgic/beefy retro racer feel.

When I switched back and forth to my stock 14s to drift from my "looks good" 15/8 0 offset XXRs the 14s suck balls. Just that slight stretch of a 195 on the x8 gave the car much better predictably and better handling feel. With the 14s on it felt like I was all over the road and steering input sucked. This is just my opinion but stick with the lower profile tires. Way better for pretty much everything. I was just a cheep ass and didn't want to ruin my newly bought tires.
