15 in rims VS. 17's

ok so i have been throwing around the idea of getting a set of 15 in method racing wheels for my truck the main reason is because i love the general grabbers red label tires but a 33 or 35 on 17 in rim is like over a hundred dollars a piece more then on a 15 in rim im not super in love with my rims in the first place. so my question is are there any real diffrence performance wise or any other on a 17 in vs 15 in rim and wait do you guys think about me selling my rims for 15's

Yes they do. I was going to buy a set last year, but they were on back order.

I've never seen someone successfully run 15s on a 6 lug second gen, even with spacers.
