My friend needs new tires but I noticed 15 inch tires on the car instead of the original 14 inch tires this car is suppose to have,does it matter if we put original tires on car or stick with existing 15 inch size...

What matters is the overall height of the wheels. He has to put lower profile tires on to get the same height as the 14in tire has.

It doesn't matter at all. If your friend has been driving with the 15 inch tires and had no issues then there won't be a problem.
