Is there any noticeable difference when running the 17's vs. 15's as far as the contact patch etc. ?

I'm talking about old school 15" Iroks vs a 17" both same size tire like a 39" tall one. I've been a diehard 15" guy because I am older etc. but I'd like to run some 40" radials and those would be hard to find in 15's!
I personally hated my 39.5 iroks on 15s, they just folded over on themselves on any kind of side hill.

IMO <38s 15s
>38s 17s
