Default Truggy Wheels - 23mm or 17mm?

Any advantage to using one over the other? Opinions and experiences needed, thanks.

17mm is the way to go, cause thats what MOST everyone uses, so wheel options and wheel/tire swapping and trading is much easier...

there is no durabillity to using 23mm over 17mm and there are 3 reasons atleast to go 17mm 1. lighter = less rotating mass = faster otta the hole and all around
2.wide variety of wheels to choose from
3. YOU CAN RUN THE NEW LPR PRO-LINE tires

BTW the only durability would be if you running steel rims and need extra strength but im sure you would break something else first
but if your just doing the normal then there is know difference

and yes ive ran 23mm and 17mm so i have an idea
