    Any pros and cons on 17 inch wheels? Will they hold a bead like a 15? Thanks.

    As long as they had the same bead construction I would think they would hold a bead just the same or better because of less leverage (shorter sidewall). Just a guess tho.

    Do a search, This has been covered A LOT over the past few weeks. I will be running them when I change my axles.

    PROS-
    Will be more common in the near future
    Have the safety bead
    More tire size variety over the next year or so
    No grinding calipers to fit regardless of what axle your running

    CONS-
    A little more expensive right now
    Not too many tire sizes available yet
