Tire trends to larger wheel diameter
I have been stuck in the mindset that I wanted to stay with 15” wheels for a very long time. I always have and continue to feel that 15” wheels just look right on a vintage 60s era mustang but now the tire options just keep decreasing and the trend seems to be going even bigger. With the investment of the tire companies going to larger diameter tires should we now start looking at 18” wheels instead of 17”? I know right now we still have a large selection of 17” but it is much more options in 18”.
I’ve decided to give up on the 15” wheels and go for new wheels. Now I’m torn between the 17” and 18”. I’ll be honest I don’t like either as I prefer the 15” but those days are leaving us behind and it’s time I stepped up to the bigger wheels. All of you autocrossers and road racers what’s your opinion on this?
