That is kind of personal preference. Here are a few things to think about...
Some people like the look of a larger wheel (not me personally though, but its your jeep).
If you really like the look of your stock 18s, your tires will cost more (lets just say 100 dollars more per tire in comparison to 15s). On top of this cost you MIGHT need wheel spacers to prevent any rubbing in turns...about 100 dollars per pair. The cost could be as little as $400 dollars more than 15s...or it could be $600 dollars or more.
So my thoughts are, if you really like your stock 18s...keep them. If you don't mind swapping wheels do some shopping and see what you can find...for that 600 dollars, you could find some nice 15" wheels. In the end it may cost the same amount to drop wheel sizes as it would to keep the 18s...but your next set of tires will also be significantly cheaper. Just some thoughts though
