17.5" Tires

I currently have 16" rims on my trailer but what I hear is that everyone likes 17.5" rims better. What is the advantage of a larger rim? Do you end up with larger tires too? Are trailer tires or truck tires better? I have heard that truck tires are better.

Bigger tires require bigger rims. Bigger tires equal fewer rotations, hence less heat/wear. Long standing discussion on what is better, truck or trailer tires. Do a search on this forum. Many, many posts and opinions.
