15"/17" Wheels-same Diameter Tires-what?
OK what are the differences? Sidewalls are less on the 17's so handling is better, right? How about ride? More wall softer ride? TRACTION?-taller sidewall flexes more so traction should be better, yes/no?
Given a choice why are wheel tire sizes getting taller?
WELD has 12lb. 15" x 8" wheels. My 17" x 9" Bullitts are 25lbs. My rears are 10.5" and 28lbs. with a 315/35 tire(MUSTANG). If a 15" lightweight wheel/tire had a nice ride and excellent traction what would I lose in handling given I could find a 15" tire wide enough? Long winter isn't it? LOL I need to put my brain into hibernation. Thanks, just looking at theory here. Also concerned to get Alan's 10" 3800 rpm stall converter to hook. Thanks, mark
