Ok, so im starting to get the wheel/tire itch now.

currently i have 16" wheels. i know i can go to a 15" steelie if i go the soft 8s

im fond of the silver.

anyway..

i figure moving to the 15 will give me more options for tires and more options for buying used tires as needed...

any reasons i should stick to the 16?

Will they physically fit around your brake calipers?

16" wheels usually have a higher load rating, which will mean stronger side walls

It took me months to find a half decent set of used 35s for 15s. More 16 and 17 available than anything since they are the more common fullsize truck sizes now.
