    Some say it is for a shorter sidewall and more control on the rocks. One negative to them is you have less tires sizes/styles to choose from.

    Wish I knew where peopel were getting these for $25ea. :D

    less sidewall= more stable.
    has safety beads (16.5 doesnt.)
    Clears big brakes better.
    new cool tires are all being made in 17" sizes, with more on the way soon.

    I've not seen them for $25 around here, but you can easily find 4 for $175 or a little less. Maybe Southern CA just has more rich A-holes who have nothing better to do with their money than buy 22" rims for their Hummers. :D
