racestar 15's or 17's in rear

Im looking to place my order and I just wanted to see how many guys were running 17 inch rears. If so why did you go 17's and do you like them. I ordered the steeda ralocation bracket so im going to be ready for the 15's but I just think the 15's look so dang small. The 17's seem to have a good amount of tire options for the size as well. Any info would be cool guys.
Thanks

Easy. Go with a 15x10 wheel. Plenty of tire options.

There seems to be plenty of tire options for both the 15 and 17. Is there a reason why most go with the 15? From my understanding the 15 was popular for the wrinkle wall slicks but i wont be using a wrinkle wall.

You're an auto so you wont need slicks. Drag radials are what you want. A 15" tire will hook better than a 17" and will also ride better.

All depends on the gear you are running.

Either a 295/55-15 which is 27.8" tall or a 275/60-15 which is 28" tall. The 28" tire will really knock the gearing down though so that's something to consider.
