Due to the large number of well thought out responses to my earlier post re. my nogosnow jeep I'm going tall & skinny. However I need some advice. Will I see an advantage if I go with 16" or 17" wheels? I know about plus 1 and plus 2 combo's for sports cars but this a Jeep. What is lighter? a 33" tire with a 15" wheel or a 16" wheel? I am also looking for backspacing recommendations. I am thinking that I will want to space the tires out as far as practical to maintain highway stability. I am thinking that I want a 33" tall mud tire about 9 or 10 inches wide. Specific recommendations/experience? I dont care a whit about noise, and treadwear is not a big factor for me either. Althought decent highway manners is a requisite. Primary off-road usage will be mud/snow as we aint got no rocks here.
