What wheel bolt pattern?

What wheel bolt pattern?

I have never had the opportunity to select my bolt pattern before as I have whatever I have.
However, with my current build I knew it would come up sometime, but really have not thought too much about it, low on my list of things. Anyhow was just going to choose 5x5 1/2 for no particular reason when I asked some of the guys around here for any input on the performance differences.
Well that was a mixed bag of results.

My only requirements are 17" steel wheels, 35" and 37" tires.

Here are my options:
5 x 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern
6 x 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern
8 x 6-1/2" Bolt Pattern

For anyone who knows performance differences;
Any pro/cons?
Strengths/weaknesses?
Costs?
??? whatever

Finally. First I thought you were a dimwad.

The 6 on 5 1/2 is a good choice as mentioned above.

I vote 8 lug though because if you ever decide to sell your wheels you have a bigger market and if you get another wheeler it most likely will have or will be getting 8 lug axles so you can wheel swap.
