I have 2012 off road adventure II pkg on my Overland, which means I have 18" wheels instead of 20". And I like it because you get much more protection for the sidewall. Not just for "light" off-road use but also for everyday drive. When I drive over the curves in a parking by "mistake"
I'm not worried about damaging side walls of my wheel. If I had 20" wheel, they will be in very bad shape by now...
I've also heard that, with 20" wheels, you are putting thinner tire than you would with 18" wheels. You would really want some cushion in your wheels if you are going to take your GC out to trail or beach.
20" wheels and the tires are really meant for highway use.
Plus, I love the look of 18" polished aluminum wheels. I know it's kinda simple design (flat), but they are VERY SHINNY and super easy to clean because they are flat.
