    There r threads that r exactly what u r looking for I’m sure. C if u can find the thread addressing the wheels and maybe pm someone that has them and ask. That would probably b the easiest and most accurate advice. That way someone who actually has them can attest. I’ve seen at least a couple of threads specific to these wheels. Best of luck.

    Like, so many.
    I went from 16's to 17's and it's totally fine. The Sport uses a 17 inch wheel as well.

    If the 17" rim and tire are heavier than the 16" rim and tire, the vehicle will drive differently in a negative way.

    Very enlightening! Would it also be safe to say.....

    If the 17" rim and tire are lighter than the 16" rim and tire, the vehicle will drive differently in a positive way?

    Thanks for the tip! :boink:

    Seems to handle better and KO2's I upgraded to grip fantastically in the snow.

    my experience was very different. (285/75/16 at 38 PSI---maybe you were aired down?)

    No I don't run that high. 265's running at 34 psi C load.
    285's I'm sure you do.

    Rough estimate is 10lbs of rotational weight is equal to 100lb on the chassis. Less rotation weight for accelleration and braking, and less suspended weight makes the vehicle drive "lighter".
