Past the initial investment of the new wheels, the 17" tires are typically cheaper than the 18" tires. Personally I hate the bigger wheels they are putting on vehicles these days. If 16" wheels would fit on my Dodge I would gladly get rid of the 17" that I currently have. Unfortunatley they won't.

thx all. learned a lot. hadnt thought about ensuring enough room for the brakes, and thought the smaller size would yield better mpg and a smoother ride.

based on what i am hearing i will keep the 18's. only have 67k miles on the 2004 and its paid for. DW thinks lightning has a better chance of striking me than me convincing her it is time to upgrade the tv.


my mod list continues to grow.

slide awning
towing mirrors
pioneer appradio II - touchsceen iphone app enhanced double din stereo replacement
back up camera
portable generator
water totes - drinking and waste
TV tires

And a higher paying job.....
