Or I could just do both...
You pretty much nailed my thoughts, I've been debating for about a year now the same questions. I currently have the stock 20s on my 2014 Liimited. I've gone back and forth mainly looking at members experiences who have gone one way or the other.
If you keep the 20s you could go up to 275/55/20 and you'll get more tire, but some have experience rubbing and/or added a leveling kit to the front for a little extra room. Right now I'm leaning toward getting a second set of wheels and 265/65/18 tires. Gives you a little more rubber than the stock 18s but will leave some breathing room. If you invest in a few pieces of equipment it will probably be quick and easy to change from one set to the next when you want to.
But then I see something like this and it makes me rethink things. This car I'm pretty sure is running stock size wheels, but in a more aggressive tire and it appears quite capable off road. Although you still might not get the look your after.
