It's really about the overall tire diameter in the end. Not saying there aren't things to consider when having 17" wheels, but it should be most the same info

I agree with you gonefishin776. There are definitely some pricing differences in the 17" tire sizes - especially the LT275-70-17 Rubber my Outdoorsman has - very few tire manufacturers selling in this size. Moving up to a slightly bigger dia. LT285-70-17 gives you way more selection and actually cheaper costs in most cases.
