More air in tires and more sidewall results in smoother more compliant ride. Greater slip before tire breaks loose. Lots of good things with 17s. I have a 3.6 monster and I love my 17s.

When the fuel pump is in the process of failing it can cause some strange symptoms and I have seen exactly one car throw a code during that period, a 2014 VW, out of dozens of makes and models.
