What size wheel?

I'm about to buy new wheels for my zuk and have always figured I would go with a 15" wheel and the more I look the more it seems like tires are starting to be made for bigger wheels.

I'm only running a 33 now but plan on going to something like a 38 to 40 and don't know which size would be better.

15 - 17 will work fine. also depends on the type of wheeling you do.

up to 38, i'd go 15 'cause i already got em, and they're cheaper. 40's, i'd go 17's for more sidewall stability.

^^ I will agree with this comment above. But I if I go 38 I will use 15-17 and for 40 I will use 17.
