HK_Runner 17s. I chose them because I could get C-rated 35s for them as well as enough room to upgrade brakes.

traitor08 I have 17's. Good options on backspacing and still have plenty of sidewall. I would have to thank Jason on my setup. Still need to email him pics.

Find the size that has the greatest range of tires available. I would say, either 16 or 17. 15 seems to small (brake upgrades?), 18+ seems to ricey or luxurious. As they are usualy placed on sports cars or regular (luxury?) suvs.

I think tires are cheaper for 16, but there may be different tire models or brands between the two.

estedre Personally i would pick the wheels i like then go with what sizes they come in. once you decide on a wheel you may find they are only available in a particular size which will narrow your decision.

+1

I love my 15s, but I'd say 16 is a great balance between all the variables.

Sgt93 18's are perfect with 35's.

fireguy Running 315 70 17 Duratracs great tire wheel size combo. Performannce on Dry road, Ice, snow, slush, rain and off road the tire is stellar so far with 4k miles on them. Very happy with the choice I made.

We are planning to go 35's and want Duratracs also. They do sell 315/70/xx which works out to be 34.4...so pretty much a 35.

Go with what you like. The bigger the wheels, the more expensive your tires will be, but it's your money and your rig. Me personally, I would go with 17's. But that is coming from someone who is looking at 18's or 20's.
