Driving from San Diego to Phoenix: Best way to go?

I'll be heading actually to Mesa,Az (suburb of Phoenix)...heading eastbound on I-8....thru Yuma. Should I then take Hwy 85 north, or continue on I-8 and instead take Hwy 17? I'll be leaving San Diego probably around 9am Friday March 14.

thanks for any comments/suggestions!

I would not recommed going on rte 85. It is a very dangerous 2 lane road with many big trucks. There are frequent fatal crashes.

Take I-8 and either go to Casa Grande and then up I10 or (as I do) exit I-8 at exit 151 and follow signs to Maricopa and then to Tempe/Chandler/Phoenix to I-10.
