    if you are going to offroad, generally the more sidewall between rocks and wheels the better. However you should have plenty either way so I would suggest photoshopping it or finding some way to visualize it and figure out your personal preference

    Well...A 275/70 will be an inch smaller on a 16" rim thana 17" rim-So if size matters-You'll have to account for that.
    Dgerm is right-More side wall between tire and surface tends to make the tire more complaint off road and a bit more comfy on road....

    I'm going to 16's when I swap my tires out...but like DG said- Find some rims you like and start there....Set some pictures up and what not...It's all about personal style.
