15" vs 16" ?

Hey all,

I am looking at getting new rims and tired and was wondering, I have 16" rims stock but if I wanted 32" mudders on a 15 inch rim, would there be any negatives to this? They are about $60 cheaper a tire and rims are about $30 cheaper.

Any suggestions would be great!

Your right on, I advise going with a 15" rim, its so much cheaper than a 16". I have 32s and 15s right and its a great combo.

with 15s you can get true sizes(33x12.5) vs 16s (305/75)

yeah, go 15s. There are fewer tire choices (model and sizes), but it is so worth it.

15s are big enough for our trucks...plus tires are cheaper and look so much better

Thanks guys for the answer. I was assuming there would be no issues but I wanted to ask first. It's alot cheaper so this is the router I think I am gonna take. Now I just have to reprice everything for 15"
