17-85 and 10-22 VS 17-55

I jumped into the high-end digital slr playground this past fall with a 40d. I also bought the 17-85 as my walk around lens and the 10-22 because I love the benefits of wide angle. After 6 months or so I'm finding that I don't reach down to the super wide range as much as I thought I would and though the telephoto end of the 17-85 is nice, it's not that big a hoot.

I'm wondering about trading in both lenses and purchasing a 17-55 to serve as my wide angle and walk around lens. I think I'd save myself the trouble of switching lenses back and forth with a move like this.

Anyone have an opinion regarding the relative quality of the images between the two options?
