Brand new 17's are typically cheaper. But what I think Earl is referring to with a wider selection of 18" race tires is that this size is a common race size and many teams and amateur racers offer their scrubs with 4-5 heat cycles and plenty of rubber left for pennies on the dollar. I have gotten two sets this way for 17's from T1 racers, but 17" scrubs are now becoming a rare find. They are almost as good as new, but make it considerably cheaper to run on R tires.
