Yeah I like 'em both too,
it's the coming of the times I guess to have a bigger rim though
how expensive do you think it will be to buy 15" tires in ten years? twenty?
when I bought my first T/A, I found a set of 14" snow flakes at a junk yard, paid 100 bones for 'em, spent more money on the 14" tires then if they were 15" and ended up selling them off because they were just way too small for my liking

Really i wasn't aware that they made 14 inch snowflakes.  My only complaint with the 17s is they are too spread out compared to the original ones, but i understand its because they are bigger wheels and it was either strech them out or add more and im sure they tried both buy those looked the best.  Im not sayin i wouldn't buy them.  I just dont have the MULA.
