I like the cost savings of going the 17” right. Both have plenty of sidewall for me. Just can’t decide on what I like best after coming all the photos. Some of the pics its hard to tell whether 17 or 18. Would love to see some photos!

37x11.5x18 tires on 18x9 +1 offset wheels

IMHO - If you want your tires to stick out further save some $ and use 17's with 12.5 or 13.5" wide tires. I went this route to minimize the amount of tire outside the fender.

Thanks! Looks good! I do like the -12 offset look, so that’s a great point

C'mon, it's an INCH! You can't tell what's a 17 or an 18 in a photo

Went this route because I got a great deal. Way harder to find tires that fit 18's. Will probably go 17's in the future.

More important is the tire you plan on running, the load makes a difference in the handling. The weight affects axle strength and handling.

You're right but that (tire comparison to stock and each other and weights) is a whole 'nuther, long discussion
