If you are just riding on smooth roads with the 17s, you probably won't notice it much.
Interesting point. A lot of the miles I will be riding are on bombed out post-recessionary pavement.

This is why I was thinking 19/17. But, it may still be a wacky idea on a WRR. I guess I could get a second set of 21/18 wheels and mount less aggressive tires. Input welcome.
