Although 16" is cheaper both ways, they are much harder to find tires that jeeps actually use. 16" is usually a truck size rim, so there's many tires that don't come in sizes you'll want, and they usually come in E rated. I'll give you an example, I wanted to go with 16" but I couldn't find the tire I want (KM2) in 35 in that size. They have all their sizes in 15" and 17" so I went with a 17 instead.
