17x9 or 18x9 atx artilleries on 35s

Hey guys, so I currently have a 2010 silver JKU Sahara. I'm getting new wheels and tires as well as a 3" teraflex lcg long arm lift. I've figured out everything I need for the lift and I'm planning to run 35s. I'm pretty set on ATX Artillery wheels but I was looking at Pro Comp 7089 wheels as well. My question is should I stick with stock Sahara sized wheels and go with the 18x9s or go down a size to 17x9? Which do you think looks better with 35s? Thanks!

I personally went down to 17s. I like to have some sidewall and I read that anything more than 9" of sidewall can get squirrelly during evasive maneuvers at highway speed. So 17s worked best with my 35s.

Just to give you more ideas how they might look, here are mine on a 2.5" lift.

These are 17x9 with pro comp xtreme all terrain 35x12.5r17.

Tires actual measure out to 33.25"

^^This
Also weight. There is a 2 pound difference between the 17" & 18" wheel your looking at. That goes for tires as well. And when you buy tires for 18" wheels you also step up in price for tires.
If it were me I would go with 17".. My 0.02

17's get my vote! 18's don't look as good (IMO) and cost more to put tires on!

Why not go with 16s and save more $$? ATX Artillery owners, how do you like the Teflon? Work as advertised? Color grayish?

Didn't like the glossiness. I plasti dipped mine. You can see how matted they look in the picture.

Thinking about picking up some pro comp 7069s with my tax refund.

Well from everything I've read 15" are the cheapest tires. For me however, even though I like the look of more sidewall, safety is a concern as well since I drive mine on the highway. I have had to make evasive maneuvers on the highway at 75 mph because of idiots. Can't take the risk it will happen again. No highway or high speed driving? Then 15s should be fine.

Nothing really sticks to the teflon in any amount except brake dust general road grime and salty snow water. Mud not so much. The glossiness doesnt really bother me and im happy with them. The gray matches the fenders and plastic well too.
