17" wheels versus 18" wheels.

I apologize because I am sure this has been asked & answered before, but I can't find the thread to save my life. I think I read here once to avoid 18" wheels (and to stick with 17" wheels) because the tires for 18" wheels are either hard to find or much more expensive to replace, or some similar issue.

I am not a current JKU owner, but I hope to be an owner in the next 6 months so I am starting my diligence now.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

I've got 18" and bought some 17" Jeep wheels, better selection of available tire and bit lower prices. Go down to 16" and you find even more lower prices.
