IMO anything over 17 shouldn't even be on a jeep. 20 and up looks weird on smaller SUVs anyway.
I used to want 20s but after working at a tire shop and dealing with the installs and pain in the ass customers who do nothing but bitch, i am all set with my nice 17s.
I wish i could fit my old 04 Tj Rubicon 16" Moab wheels on it. Tires are cheaper too.
Not to mention that we have more issues with bent or out of round wheels on cars with bigger wheels then cars with 17s or smaller (for trucks 16s or smaller for cars)
