some have also suggested DC1's or just running 33x13.50x15 nittos with my current wheels

just looking for some opinions.

I like the new setup much better. 17s ftw. Soon 15s will be very uncommon. 17s are the new 15s.

Ewwww.... Keep the set-up you have now. Not to mention the price of tires for a 17" wheel is a lot more expensive then the price for a 15" wheel.

I personally like the 17's. I am planning on putting some black 17's on mine. I am going with Nitto as well, but terra-grapplers not mud-grapplers. Too much street driving to justify all that meat.

Im really liking the moto metals for sure and the nittos look awesome. I am not a huge fan of the 16" rim just because of the sizes of the tires available. Id rather run a 17 and a 33x12.50 than a 305x75. Main reason im wanting to switch it up is because a buddy offered me $1100 for my wheels and tires or he wants 2 buy either separately. If i can get a good price on the grapplers and 17's ima do it maybe.
