I'm in the same boat but with 16's as I want to be on 17's. My rims are all ready bead locked and I really want to upgrade to red label tires but they are in the 17" flavor or 20".
But 8 years ago 17's were not as popular and red labels were tougher to get, so the clear choice was 16's.
Op chose your tire size that you want for a while, cause its like anything, costly to do it twice.
