change permissions of a sql login group from read & write to read-only

This group consists of 20 members and all are AD logins. Only 5 of them needs to be having the read & write access and rest should be changed to read only. Can anyone tell the best way to achieve this please.,

Have another AD group set up and move the 15 read-only members to it. Then in SQL Server only assign db_datareader role to the new group.

Thanks for your response Kev. Initially thought of the same approach but then realised better to ask any SSC members for a better and easy answer.
