respect the 17s!
 
I've seen some hate for the base 17" wheels in other threads, but really they're not that bad! Besides, they're more unique in a way since the majority of WK2s I see aren't running them.

Just saying...

I have them, no problems with the looks. And I prefer the extra sidewall, they ride better and seem to handle the winter snow better than any lower profile tire Ive driven

The 18s are more bland than the 17s. With that said, I'm not a fan of any of the painted rims. The 20s don't look right on a Jeep. What I'm saying is that of the factory options, when I was looking around in the lot, I thought the polished 18s looked best. But, they were not worlds better than the 17s, and I liked the painted 17s better than the painted 18s. Those plastic coated 17s look WAY better then the plastic coated 18s I've seen.

17's are the new 15's. End of story.
Each size has it's purpose.

Re: respect the 17s!
 
Obviously, the best wheel size is subjective. Personally I think I like the 17". I just bought a new summit and already downgraded to the 18" polished wheel. I am currently looking for a set of 17" wheels that I will have powdercoated semi-gloss black to replace the already downgraded 18' polished wheels.
