On my current project, I've got an 8x12 and a 14x22 ready for re-wrap. I've also got 12x15 and 14x16 shells but only enough lugs and legs to complete one of the two. I'm partial to the 15, but I won't be keeping the kit.
So, which configuration do you think would attract more potential buyers, 12, 15, 22 or 12, 16, 22? Finishing both FTs at this time is not an option.
In case it makes a difference, all shells are Ludwig 3-ply and the FTs were once concert toms.
My preference would actually be 14x14, because that's my World-Tour-On-A-Budget Kit, but since that is not an option, I would vote for 16x14.
I used to have a 20/12/16 kit and those sizes all worked together really well.
In addition, if you can find a 14" rack tom, that would make it (what I call) a Convertible kit, since the toms (12/14/16) can be assembled into a smaller second kit for more intimate settings.
...anyway, who wouldn't want to R-O-C-K on a 22/14/16 kit! That's approaching Bonzo territory.
P.S. Another way to look at this - since you're partial to the 15, build this kit with the 16 and sell it all off. Then you have a drum leftover that you actually want and build a drumkit that you would keep for yourself (hopefully funded by the sale of the kit you're currently building) and be happier with the end product, since you prefer the sizes you used to build it. Your own personal Favourite kit.
