With a 16" wheel, you limit yourself on how big of a tire you can run eventually, simply because the 16" wheels aren't very common. With the 18" wheel, you get into some crazy expensive tires. If you are wanting something larger than a 15", I would recommend going with a 17". Literally hundreds of tire choices in that rim diameter.
For the 17" rim, I would recommend something in the 285/70/17 range. Duratrac would be my choice in an AT tire (really more of a AT/MT hybrid). Of course, there are many other choices. Browse around the forum as there are several folks running that rim/tire size combo.
