17" down to 16"....

how many of you went from a 17" rim to a 16"? Are you glad you did or do you regret it?

I'm trying to decide if i should go down to a 16" rim. plus for me is that wheels/tires will be cheaper. I don't wheel just pavement and snow but not sure how else this will affect me if any.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

I went from 17" to 16"

I basically wanted more tire and less wheel for offroading, plus for looks (subjective). I didn't even realize that tires would be cheaper, it was just an added plus.

If it's mostly street, stay with the 17's unless you're dead set on 16's for their looks. More sidewall means more flex when you air down, less sidewall is better for streetablitly. That said, if neither of those things matter to you, do what you feel looks better in your own opinion.
