16inch rims

Wow what a pain to get tires for. Can someone explain to me the reasoning for a set of 31inch tires to be 300 dollars more expensive on 16 inch rims vs 15?

16" is less common than 15". Plain and simple. Less desirable/need for 16" tires than 15". Notice how almost all the car companys are headed towards 17s, 18s, 20s.....

$40 difference between 31x10.50r15s vs. 265/70/r16 BFG A/Ts......It adds up.
