Total wheel & tire package is only 150 more for the 18s.
It sounds like you are leaning towards the 18s. If the increased price for tires is not an issue for you and you can find the tire you want that will fit an 18, go for it.
I have 17s with 35" tires mounted. Personally, I wouldn't do an 18 with a smaller tire, but it should be fine with a 35. The reduced sidewall is not that significant going from 17" to 18" wheels, but it is something to consider if you do a lot of offroading. If you primarily drive on the street, it won't matter. If you do a lot of offroading, the 17" wheel might be a better option to give you more sidewall protection and an easier time airing down the tires.
